Magical Oils plants in the form of oil and incense were elements of religious and therapeutic practices in early cultures worldwide. In addition, anointment with perfumes and fragrant oils was an almost universal practice. In some folk magic traditions, Witchcraft Magical Oils can be used for both anointing people and objects, such as candles. In some magical systems, such as various forms of Witchcraft, candle dressing oils are also used to anoint the skin, so many oils are blended in a way that is skin-safe. This way, they can be used for dressing candles and charms, but also can be worn on your body.
Using an eyedropper, add the Magical Oils in the recipes. Be sure to follow the recommended proportions. Swish the Magical Oils into the base oil by swirling in a clockwise direction. Finally, consecrate your oils if your tradition requires it. Make sure you store your oil blends in a place away from heat and moisture. Keep them in dark-colored glass bottles, and be sure to label them for use. Write the date on the label, and use within six months.
There are a number of ways you can use your oils in a ritual setting. They are often rubbed on candles for use in spellwork, this blends the powerful energies of the oil with the magical symbolism of the candle’s color and the energy of the flame itself.
Magical Oils are used to anoint the body. If you are blending an oil to use for this purpose, be sure that you’re not including any ingredients that are irritating to the skin. Oils applied to the body bring the wearer the energies of the oil. Finally, crystals, amulets, talismans and other charms may be anointed with the Magical Oils of your choice. This is a great way to turn a simple mundane item into an item of magical power and energy.
A good place to start is with 8 ounces oil per 8 tablespoons herb or flower. Remember a little oil goes a long way. You can use Mineral Oil or some other neutral carrier oil to absorb the scent and properties of the herb. It is helpful to visualize the purpose for which you are making the oil throughout the process or you can say a little chant pertaining to that certain oil while making it to add more of your energy and power to it. It is important that you cap the jars tightly or you will have moldy mixtures. Remember the darker the bottle, the better your oil will keep. Add tincture of benzoin to preserve your oils.
Pour your oil into your mortar. Add your herb a little at a time, pressing it into the oil with your pestle. After you have combined it well, pour it into a bottle. Store the bottle in a dark, consecrated place for three days. On the fourth day check oil to see if it has absorbed enough of the scent.
You can repeat this process of scenting your oil until its as strong as you desire. When the scent is right for you it is ready for use in your spellwork. Strain with cheesecloth, store in tightly capped dark glass bottles with a little tincture of benzoin to preserve.
