WOTC Extra, Extra – Basic Oil Recipe

Witchy Comments & Graphics

Basic Oil Recipe

 

For each magical oil blend, begin with 1/8 cup of carrier oil.  Add the drops of essential oil to the carrier oil, per the recipe.  To combine, swish or swirl the oil around, do not stir.  Your oil is complete.

 

If you only need a very small amount of the blend you are making, you can start with less than 1/8 cup of carrier oil, simply reduce the drops by a corresponding amount.

WOTC Extra – What Are Carrier Oils Exactly?


Witchy Comments & Graphics

What Are Carrier Oils Exactly?

Carrier oil is the base oil which you start with.  Carrier oils are as follows: almond, olive, safflower, and sunflower.  You can use any carrier oil you prefer.  Olive oil is perhaps the cheapest one on the list, depending on the type and brand.  It is also probably the least attractive smelling to many people.

When selecting carrier oil, keep in mind the purpose to which you will use your magical oil blend.  If you are creating a blend to anoint candles or other objects, olive oil is probable fine and is cost efficient.  If you are creating an oil rub for your body, you might want to select almond oil, something many people like on their skin.

Let’s Talk Witch – Storing Your Essential Oils

Witchy Comments & Graphics

Storing Your Essential Oils

 

It is very important to understand how to store magical oils properly.  Basic essential oils tend to be expensive. Once you have created a magical oil blend suited to your specific purpose, it is in your best interest to store it properly, saving you time and money in the long run.

When you are ready to create your magical oil blend, assemble your tools.  All tools, and especially the bottles that will be used for storage, should be boiled for at least ten minutes before use.  This will ensure that there isn’t dirt or bacteria on anything that could contaminate your supply.

You will need to store your oil in glass bottles.  Never store oil in a plastic bottle, even though plastic is much cheaper.  Using a glass bottle will ensure you are able to utilize your magical oil blend as long as possible, while using plastic will simply hasten its going bad.  Your glass bottle should also be made of colored glass, as this will help block out light.  Green or brown are good colors for storing magical oil.  Some people will prefer to store each magical oil blend in a glass bottle with a color that corresponds to its purpose.  This is a good idea if you can manage to locate small glass bottles in a variety of colors.  Once your blend is complete, it should be marked by its name and date, and then stored in a cool, dark place.  Oils will generally last for six months.

Louisiana Van Van Oil

Louisiana Van Van Oil

This oil has multiple uses in New Orleans Voodoo. Simply add 2 tablespoons of lemongrass herb and two drops of lemongrass oil to two ounces of base oil. Add a piece of rock salt that has been blessed to the mixture.

Here is a recipe for an authentic Van Van Oil formula described by Catherine Yronwode of luckymojo.com fame:

• 16 parts lemongrass oil

• 8 parts citronella oil

• 1 part vetivert oil

• 1 part palmarosa oil

• 1 part gingergrass oil if you can get it

Mix together and let sit for at least week. This is your stock oil.

In each 1/2 oz. bottle of VAN VAN OIL to be made up, place

• a pinch of dried lemongrass leaves

• a pinch of crushed pyrite crystals

• one full standard dropper-full of the above stock blend

Fill the bottle with undyed almond oil as a carrier.

Holy Oil of Aspiration

Holy Oil of Aspiration

Early in the 20th century, the British occultist Aleister Crowley created his own version of Abramelin Oil, which he called “Oil of Abramelin,” and sometimes referred to as the “Holy Oil of Aspiration.” It was based on Mathers’ substitution of Galangal for Calamus in the Abramelin Oil.

His recipe reads as follows:

• 8 parts Cinnamon essential oil

• 4 parts Myrrh essential oil

• 2 parts Galangal essential oil

• 7 parts Olive oil

Crowley weighed out his proportions of essential oils according to the recipe specified by Mathers’ translation for weighing out raw materials. The result is to give the Cinnamon a strong presence, so that when it is placed upon the skin “it should burn and thrill through the body with an intensity as of fire.”

This formula is unlike the grimoire recipe and it cannot be used for practices that require the oil to be poured over the head. Rather, Crowley intended it to be applied in small amounts, usually to the top of the head or the forehead, and to be used for anointment of magical equipment as an act of consecration.
