Demon-Possessed Essential Oil
Lawd have mercy. Last week, I posted an article on this chick I know who is all kinds of batshit, who believes she is under attack from demons but who has some “essential oil” to ward the demons off and prevent them possessing her. I was just being flippant. I posted it because I thought it was funny and it might make you all smile. I had no idea the can of springy gag worms I was opening. I was informed that there is a veritable war going on between ultra-Right-wing religious wackjobs and essential oils. Sensing a good story, there, I decided to investigate further. Lawd have mercy.
Did you know that using essential oils is tantamount to witchcraft? Neither did I, but it is, according to the wackjobs. It is true that Wiccans, etc. will also use essential oils, and that they believe the oils possess some spiritual qualities. (I didn’t know that, either.) In years past, essential oils were a component of “folk medicine.” (I’d never thought about it, but it makes sense.) It is thus regarded by the wackjobs as “demonic healing,” i.e. it is demons that are doing the healing when one uses essential oils. That lady I know is using Beelzebub to cast out Beelzebub! But then there are stories like this one, where essential oils are used BY religious wackjobs in religious wackjob ceremonies. (Yes, I know it’s a satire site.)
So you got some religious wackos who believe essential oils can drive away demons. And then you got some religious wackos who believe using essential oils can CAUSE you to become demonically-possessed. And all this hoopla over something that is just a glorified air-freshener.
Lawd have mercy.
