Planet: Mars and Moon
Deities: Bes, Beset, Allah
Syrian Rue or peganum Harmala, also known as Espand, African Rue and Harmel, is a plant found to be sacred throughout the Mediterranean region. The Egyptians believed it to be the physical manifestation of the deity Bes. Bes was the diety of childbirth, sex, war, protection, music, humor and dancing, which correspond strongly with the effects of the syrian rue. The concept of "Flying Carpets'' comes from the Persian rugs dyed with the seeds. The alkaloids would then soak through the skin of the one sitting on it, giving the sensation of flight. The active compounds in syrian rue are in the class of β-carbolines, most notably harmine and harmaline. The two together, when first discovered, were thought to be a single alkaloid called Telepathine, named after its ability to seemingly grant the user the gift of telepathy. These compounds act as MAOIs, preventing the breakdown of various neurotransmitters in the brain. Some of the first antidepressants were even modeled in this fashion. This ointment has gone through quite the process to get to you, and is so alkaloid rich you can see it in the decadent, reddish brown coloring and it's gentle glow under ultraviolet light. Warning labels must be read and understood before purchasing, as this medicine is gorgeous, but comes with a necessary level of understanding in order to interact with it.
