The more familiar name of this goddess is Bast and her festa is May 11.

Her name was originally B'sst which became Ubaste, then Bast, then Bastet; the meaning of this name is not known or, at least, not universally agreed upon. Geraldine Pinch claims that "her name probably means She of the Ointment Jar" as she was associated with protection and protective ointments. Greeks associated Her closely with their goddess Artemis & believed that, as Artemis had a twin brother (Apollo) so should Bast. They associated Apollo with Horus, the son of Isis (Heru-sa-Aset) & called the goddess known as Bast ba'Aset (Soul of Isis) which would be the literal translation of her name with the addition of the second 'T' to denote the feminine (Aset being among the Egyptian names for Isis).

We have one partner for this swap, and can either craft our own ointment, oil or lotion OR purchase something to send our partner.

When you sign up for this swap, please indicate your scent preferences; both likes and dislikes. It is sender's choice, but factor in if your partner has a scent they do not want to receive.

Obviously, it is still a Sacred Cat themed swap with the ointment/oil or lotion as the tool so that we can honor Her on her festa.

Send on time. I've put the deadline out to join and the shipping deadline even further so that you can either make your swap or order it online. Rate when you receive and if you have questions or concerns, PM me.

I go ga-ga over patchouli and dislike oregano. I am open to receive and FYI would pass along anything with oregano.

I love light sweet scents, florals, and woodsy/pine scents. My favorites are vanilla, rose, jasmine, currant, and anise seed. I try to avoid heavy scents like spices, musk, anything too cloying or medicinal (they cause me headaches).

Please no patchouli or oak moss. It smells like mold to me. Thank you!

Light florals, green woodsy scents...anything that's not too overpowering or headache inducing. Lol. Thank you.

I like light florals (honeysuckle), soft sweet scents, citrus, calming blends. I do not care for patchouli, mint, geranium or anything heavy or strong smelling that you think might trigger a migraine. Thank you :)

Oh yeah... that reminds me. Lavender gives me a headache.

Fruity/citrus is always pleasant as well as smoky, sweet, cinnamon and clove! - no thank you to lavender and patchouli

My favorite scent is patchouli. Lavender and sage give me headaches.
