Behind the development of MARIA MAGDALENE OIL and BALM, as we know them today, is author and mystic Lars Muhl, who through intense study of the Bible, the apocryphal writings and other sources, has managed to recreate the original oil and balm in close collaboration with Niels Erik Aamand.
The project with the production of Maria Magdalene oil based on the original recipe, came to extend over 1 year. The corrected composition and exact amount of oils that were included in the preparation of a portion of oil was not stated – in the scriptures the value of e.g. Myrrha: 30 dinars, Spikenard: 70 dinars, etc. So it became a partially intuitive work, where ca. 30-50 new samples per week was made, to hit the original recipe as accurately as possible.
Founder of SARDkopenhagen, Charlotte Kasandra, has since worked intuitively with the products to adjust the aesthetics of the products to suit the new era. The scent of the oil has over the last few years, been adapted to a more “contemporary nose” – without losing its high potent effect.
“These sacred remedies were used by the Therapists in their rituals and treatments. The essays – which were the culture they lived under, drew on both Persian and Egyptian insights, and it was from Persia that the secret behind Spikenard, Myrrh and Frankincense originated. “The three oils ” represent the divine trinity as expressed in the symbol of the Caduceus. This symbol consists of a magic wand, surrounded by two serpents that circle around the wand. This is also the symbol of the Kundalini serpent and its possibilities.”
