THE SEKHMET STORY
BY THERAPEUTIC PERFUMER KATE BECKER
February 2023 Bastet Perfume Society Perfume of the Month
In 2017, on a visit to the Egyptian wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, I found myself inexplicably drawn to a giant statue of Sekhmet; the lion-headed solar goddess of the Egyptian pantheon. She is known as a fierce protector of truth, a goddess of destruction with potent transformational qualities and a ferocious healer. As I stood next to this statue, the veil of time dissipated and I felt captivated by a magnetic pull.
On that day the formula for this perfume downloaded and necessary fierceness arose within me.
Fast forward to December 2022. Last month, on my visit to Egypt, a dream came true when I was blessed to visit anancient statue of Sekhmet in her chapel at the Temple of Karnak. During this time, her alchemical presence blessed me once again. No words can describe this.
I believe the medicine of Sekhmet is needed for many of us, for she aims to return balance to the human condition by restoring calm out of turmoil.Sekhmet perfume will support your alchemical transformation at the deepest levels of your being.
