Magickal Goody For June 15th: Medieval Rosary Beads

Medieval Rosary Beads

4     cups rose petals

4     cups distilled water

1     teaspoon sandalwood oil

1     teaspoon rose oil

Finely chop rose petals into an iron pot, adding enough distilled water to cover the petals. Heat, uncovered, for 1 hour without boiling the petals. Cover and leave overnight to set. Repeat the process for 4 more days. Then begin to roll the petals into beads, rubbing your hands with 1 drop each of sandalwood and rose oil first, repeating every 5 beads. Press out any liquid as you roll the beads. Thread with a large needle and thick (or plastic) thread. Allow to dry. Makes 60 beads. Separate every  10 beads with a space and 1 isolated bead.

*Personal note* Rosary Beads are not just for Christians anymore. Their popularity in the Pagan culture is growing and being used.  Whether you plan on using a Rosary or not, this would be a beautiful collector’s item.  One more thing at the end of the Rosary beads where normally a Cross would go, use a Pentacle (that’s what I did). I kept trying to win a Pagan Rosary on Ebay with no luck. So I made this set. I got some Rose essential oil and sprinkled it on the Rosary and then attached a beautiful Pentacle to it.  I believe any Pagan would be proud to own it.
