The cabochon shape is perfect for placement on the body.  There is also enclosed a piece of Palo Santo (holy wood) which has been sustainably harvested, to create sacred space and atmosphere, and a meditation to practice to open the ajna chakra. 
    Nuit's Third Eye Balm is a powerful anointing balm created with a blend of magical botanicals that open the third eye and that are sacred to Nuit.     
    In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra. The third eye is referred to as the gate that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In New Age spirituality, the third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance. The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out~of~body experiences. 
    Nuit is Goddess of the Sky, the heavens and the starry night that reflects the eternity of the universe. As Mother Goddess of the Night, She is keeper of the unconsciousness and a protector of those who have journeyed through the land of the dead. Her skin is the colour of the night sky lit by the starry souls of our dead ancestors who await rebirth. As the Mother Goddess of the Sun, She is a Goddess of resurrection. Each of Her hands and feet touching one of the cardinal points of Earth creating a Circle Of life with no beginning and no end. Her arched body creates the Milky Way filled with the Spiraling lights of Resurrection. Through the love of Goddess Nuit we are all sparks of life manifesting our own paths and free will. Her greatest gift is that we experience life with the promise of all paths leading back to Her.
    Nuit represents the infinitely-expanded circle whose circumference is unmeasurable and whose center is everywhere (whereas Hadit her consort is the infinitely small point within the core of every single thing). It is the interaction between these two cosmic principles that creates the manifest universe.

       The Egyptians saw that the blue water lily opened up each morning, seeing the intense golden centre set against the blue petals, seemingly an imitation of the sky that would greet the sun, releasing sweet perfume. Each afternoon, they would close again only to open again each day. The flower was therefore firmly linked with the rising and the setting of the sun, and thus to the sun god and the story of creation. The religious significance of the flower was great - many columns of the Egyptian temples had water lily capitals crowning them.
      This plant was an important adjunct to shamanistic healing in dynastic Egypt. Iit is argued that the dynastic Egyptians had developed a form of shamanistic trance induced by this plant and used it in medicine as well as healing rituals. Analysis of the ritual and sacred iconography of dynastic Egypt, as seen on stelae, in magical papyri, and on vessels, indicates that these people possessed a profound knowledge of plant lore and altered states of consciousness.  The lotus in both Egypt and India symbolizes the union of the four elements; earth, air, fire, and water. The roots are in the earth, it grows in and by means of water, its leaves are nourished by air, and it blooms through the power of the sun's fire. The lotus is therefore the perfection of the fourfold order of the natural world. The growth of a new flower directly from the earth-bound original (inflorescent proliferation) may be interpreted as a symbol of transcendence as found in Indian philosophy: a spiritual emergence of a higher world directly from our physical manifestation. It may also be interpreted, as in Egypt, as the exaltation of the essence quality of the lotus. 
      Spikenard was considered precious even in Biblical times, when Mary Magdalene used it to anoint Jesus' feet at the last supper. It is from the foothills of the Himalayas and it's Hindu name 'Jatamansi' means 'lock of hair' in allusion to the hairy rhizome, which is the source of the essential oil. Spikenard is a member of the Valerian family and in Ayurveda it is used similarly to Valerian in western herbalism. Throughout Asia, Spikenard is highly valued as an incense ingredient.
      Spikenard is a classic anointing oil. It offers protection and purification for ritual work. It is particularly useful for spirit journeys to the Otherworld and may help those who are embarking on this last rite of passage. It may also be used for dream work and astral travel. As an amulet it can attract good fortune and help to keep one's promises. It is very grounding.
      In aromatherapy, this oil is mostly used for its effect on the nervous system. It calms and centres a person who has come unhinged and is useful for stress related conditions, migraine and insomnia.
      She is an enchantress, this 'Queen of the Night', (or 'nuit')who works her magic through the nose.  In India, the flowers of J. sambac are regarded as sacred, symbolizing innocence and purity of mind. Jasmine flower garlands adorn the temples and holy effigies or are offered to the Gods. At religious festivals the Gods themselves are thought to be present within the flowers. Jasmine flowers are never amiss at wedding ceremonies, and women like to weave a string of flowers into their hair, thus engulfing themselves with this beautiful, most sensuous of natural perfumes. 
      Jasmine is an excellent oil to use in tantric rituals and sacred unions. It rouses sensuality and opens the mind to the perception of divine beauty in all things. Jasmine gives wings to prayers and makes a wonderful offering to the Gods. It helps the practitioner to connect with their purest intentions and highest aspirations.
       The Rose is a feminine herb, synonymous with love, sacred to Venus and associated with the element of water.  Working with Rose is ideal for getting in touch with the source of Shakti within.  It may also be used in fertility rites and to call or welcome new souls into our world.  Rose may be used to manifest abundance in a general or specific sense and strengthens the heart.
