Zhang Guolao Lucky Magical Oil
Zhang Guo, better known as Zhang Guolao, is a Chinese mythological figure
and one of the Eight Immortals in the Taoist pantheon. Among the Eight
Immortals, Zhang Guolao, Zhongli Quan and Lü Yan were real historical
figures. His existence is said to have begun around the middle or end of
the 7th century, and ended approximately in the middle of the 8th.
The epithet "Lao" added at the end of his name means "old."
Zhang was a Taoist fangshi (translated as "occultist-alchemist") who lived
as a hermit on Zhongtiao Mountain (中條山; southeast of present-day Yongji,
Shanxi) in Hengzhou (恆州) during the Tang dynasty. By the time Wu Zetian
came to power, he claimed to be several hundred years old. A strong believer
in the magic of necromancy, he also declared that he was a Grand Minister to
the mythical Emperor Yao in his previous life. Zhang also had a love for wine
and winemaking. He was known to make liquor from herbs and shrubs as a
hobby. Other members of the Eight Immortals drank his wine, which they
believed to have healing or medicinal properties. He was also known to be a
master of qigong and could go without food for days, surviving on only a few
sips of wine.
Zhang was the most eccentric of the Eight Immortals, seen clearly in the style
of Chinese martial arts dedicated to his memory. The style includes moves such a
s delivering a kick during a backflip or bending so far back that your shoulders
touch the ground. He was known to be quite entertaining, often making himself
invisible, drinking water from the petals of poisonous flowers, snatching birds in
flight from the sky, as well as wilting flowers simply by pointing in their direction.
Zhang appears frequently in Chinese paintings and sculpture, either with the Eight
Immortals or alone, and, like the other immortals, can be seen in many different
common artistic mediums and everyday objects. He may be depicted standing or
seated, but is typically shown riding his white mule, usually seated facing backwards.
His emblem is a fish drum, which is a tube-shaped bamboo drum with two iron rods
or mallets that he carries with him, or carrying a phoenix feather or a peach,
representing immortality. Since he represents old age, in the Taoist fengshui tradition,
a picture or statue of him can be placed in the home or bedroom of an elderly person
to help bring them a long life and a good, natural death. A picture of him on his mule
offering a descendant to a newly wed couple can also be found in Taoist nuptial chapels.
Here is a delightful Magical Oil blessed and consecrated in the spirit of Zhang Guolao
to help bring you Good Luck, and a hopefully long life! You can wear a drop now and
then, like a cologne or perfume, or just occasionally open the bottle for a few minutes
and allow the essence and the magic into the room.
