The Triple Goddess
First, let’s get to chatting about who/what the Triple Goddess is. The Triple Goddess refers to three main Archetypes of the Goddess & the phases of a woman’s life: Maiden, Mother (or Creatrix) and Crone (the Wise Woman).
The Maiden deals with that young, idealist energy. We learn, plan and begin to take action to acutalize our goals. The Maiden is represented by the New & Waxing Moon phases.
The Mother (or Creatrix) deals with fertility of all types, manifestation, and creation energies. In this phase of our lives we have experience and knowledge to create some amazing magic! Our lives are built on the actions we take. We can begin to foster and grow ideas, working them toward fruition. The Mother is represented by the Full Moon phase of the Lunar cycle.
The Crone (or Wise Woman / Sage) deals with wisdom and grace that comes from experience and a life well lived. She’s been there, done that and understands what it takes to be in harmony with the world around her. She also doesn’t suffer fools! As the Wise Woman, the Crone Goddess is a representation of a journey nearing its end – we have lots of memories, experiences of joy and sorrorow and all the wisdom that comes from these. The Crone is represented by the Waning & Dark Moon phases.
While we may be in one of these phases in our lives (for example, I’m currently in the Mother/Creatrix phase), we can also tap into the energy of any of the other phases, for strength, wisdom & guidance.
One way of tapping into those energies is by working with essential oils. We’re going to dive into some of my favorite oils and oil blends to work with when connecting to the Triple Goddess.
Essential Oil Recommendations
One of the best trios for connecting to the Triple Goddess is actually the Yoga Collection from doTERRA (yep, you read that right). This trio of oil blends isn’t just for diffusing during your yoga practice. Personally, I don’t have a yoga practice, but I LOVE working with these oils in my magickal practice!
First, let’s cover Arise – this blend is perfect for connecting with the Maiden. The Maiden is all about fiery, passionate, go-getter energy. It’s about the dawn and the promise of things to come. Pictured above is Persephone, but I’m talking about her Maiden side – Kore.
Before Kore became Persephone and took up the mantle of Queen of the Underworld, she was a Fertility Goddess like her mother, Demeter. You can use Arise to tap into her blossoming energy. Diffuse it during ritual when raising energy, when you want to be creative, or when you need an energy boost.
Arise is blended with Grapefruit, Lemon, Osmanthus, Melissa, and Siberian Fir in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Next, you see Brigid pictured with the Align blend, representing the Mother’s energy. Brigid also has a lot of creative, fiery energy but she is alos the Matron Goddess of Midwifery and is the Matron of Poets and Smiths. She embodies the full range of the energies of the Mother, including fertility (in her stories, she’s a mother herself, in addition to a Midwife).
Align is all about that Mother Energy too. When we get our actions in alignment with our energy and our higher purpose, there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish. Think of this blend like a comforting Mother figure, guiding you where you need to go.
Align features Bergamot, Coriander, Marjoram, Peppermint, Jasmine, and Rose essential oils in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Last (but not least!) is the Morrigan pictured with Anchor, representing the Crone. This blend does just what it says, which to me definitley speaks to Crone energy.
At this phase, we know exactly who we are and are grounded in our beliefs and practices. The Wise Woman in our lives always has sound advice and brings us down to Earth when we’re frenzied with worry. Because, hey, she’s seen it all.
The Anchor blend brings together Lavender, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Black Pepper, and Patchouli in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil.

I’ve listed a lot about the Yoga Collection, but there are other oils and blends that can help connect to the Triple Goddess. So, I made a YouTube video! Check out the video below to hear more about this collection and other oils to help you tap into these awesome archetypes.
Hope you enjoy, lovelies! Brightest Blessings, -Cory Gunn, CCH
