Sappho Spirit Oil (Queer Female)


“Some say an army on horseback Some say on foot, and some say ships Are the most beautiful things on this black earth But I say it is whatever you love.” ~Sappho

Mortals throughout history have looked to the gods for guidance, reassurance, and acceptance regardless of their sexuality. Greek mythology reveals a greater acceptance of gender identity in ancient Athens than we often see today.

Sappho was a prolific poet, probably composing around 10,000 lines. Her poetry was well-known and greatly admired through much of antiquity, and she was among the canon of nine lyric poets most highly esteemed by scholars of Hellenistic Alexandria. Today, most of Sappho’s poetry is lost, but it is still considered extraordinary, and her works have continued to influence other writers up until the modern day. Beyond her poetry, she is well known as a symbol of love and desire between women. Today Sappho, for many, is a symbol of female homosexuality; the common term lesbian is an allusion to Sappho, who lived on the
island of Lesbos in Greece. By the turn of the twentieth century she was a sort of “patron saint of lesbians”. From the 1910’s to the 1950’s bisexual women and lesbians used to give violets to the women they were wooing. Symbolizing their “Sapphic” desire taken from a poem Sappho wrote about herself and her lover wearing garlands of violets. she references roses, violets, crocuses, honey clover, a lotus, and hyacinth specifically. She also references “meadow blooms/spring flowers,” “golden flowers,” “garlands of blooming flowers,” and “purple blooms” generally. She mentions the color purple or violet multiple times, which is perhaps where this color first became associated with the queer community. in 1927 Paris, some women wore the flower on their lapels as a show of support.

“No matter what floral names we may be called, queer people are resilient. Like the women of the Lavender Menace, we will reclaim them all and declare ourselves pansies proudly. While all of this horticultural symbolism may have started with comparing effeminate men to frilly flowers, it’s become more than that. We bloom every year in a brilliant rainbow of colors around the world, always returning, no matter how bitter the winter.” ~ Sarah Prager
