In The Egyptian Pantheon...Bast or "Bastet" means... "she of the ointment jar" or "devouring lady"...
Bast can be wrathful but also protecting!
This magical blend shall lend to the auspicious magicks the BIG CAT Goddess anoints us with and envelops us within!
"Bast was first depicted primarily as a lioness, then later as a cat or cat-headed woman. In her aspect as a cat-headed woman she frequently holds a sistrum decorated with cats and an aegis decorated with a collar or lioness head. In later years cats were her primary symbol and avatar.
Images of Bastet were often carved of alabaster. Alabaster was a common material both for sacred items and for perfume bottles, making it particularly appropriate for Bastet.
As to the fact that Bastet's name meaning 'she of the ointment jar' or the 'perfumed protector'-- Often it is correlated that anointment of oiled perfumes are dispensed from an alabaster vessel."
