“In alchemy the egg stands for the chaos apprehended by the artifex, the prima materia containing the captive world-soul. Out of the egg — symbolized by the round cooking vessel — will rise the eagle or phoenix, the liberated soul, which is ultimately identical with the Anthropos who was imprisoned in the embrace of Physis.”

Psychology and Alchemy, page 202 C.G. Jung

Egg oil (egg oil, eyova), also known as egg yolk oil or ovum oil, is derived from the yolk of chicken eggs consisting mainly of triglycerides with traces of lecithincholesterolxanthophylls such as lutein and zeaxanthin and immunoglobulins. It is free of egg proteins and hence may be used safely by people who are allergic to eggs, for topical applications such as hair and skin care.

It’s most common uses are as a cosmetic for aging skin, a preparation in traditional alchemy and utilized as an oil for the alchemists in the appearance and pursuit of immortality. It was also worked with to heal wounds, treat skin disorders, and as a hair treatment in many traditional peoples pharmacopeias.

Traditional heat extraction methods have shown evidence of destorying the amazing properties of oil of egg through the destruction of the high levels of immunoglobulin in the oil of egg. Our cold extraction method preserves the immunoglobulin and creates a superior oil of egg to the heat extraction methods.

The fatty acid composition of egg oil is rich in long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids(LCPUFA) such as omega-3 fatty acids(including docosahexaenoic acid) andomega-6 fatty acids (including arachidonic acid) and closely resembles the fatty acid profile of human milk as well as the lipid profile of human skin.

Our oil of egg is alchemically produced by Catamara Rosarium and Marcus McCoy and produced from the eggs of their five black hens in the heart of Cascadia. Due to the nature of egg laying rate and investment of time for the entire process, we only make this in very small batches and while it’s not limited, each batch is (in a sense) as it is only available when it is possible for us to make it.

Directions: Shake before use, keep at room temperature, not intended for human consumption or for the treatment of any illness.
