Protection from Harm Ointment

PROTECTION FROM HARM OINTMENT

You will need:

• 2 parts Mallow (not Marshmallow Root)

• 2 parts Rosemary

• 1 part Vervain
For the base of ointment with shortening, follow these directions:

Melt 4 parts shortening over low heat until liquefied.

Watch that it doesn’t burn. Add one part dried herbal mixture (which would be all of the herbs listed above). Blend with a wooden spoon until thoroughly mixed.

Continue heating until the shortening has extracted the scent.

You should be able to smell it in the air.

Strain through a cheesecloth into a heat-proof jar, a canning jar would be perfect for this. Add 1/2 tsp. tincture of benzoin (can be found at an herb store or drug store) to each pint of ointment as a natural preservative. Store in a cool, dark place or in the refrigerator.

Ointments will last for weeks or months. Discard any that turn moldy, and make a fresh batch. Rub onto the body and to drive out negative influences and to keep them far from you.

Fast Luck Oil

Fast Luck Oil

 

This oil contains herbal essences, all of which have the effect of quickening up a spell. However, there is need for a word of warning, since many people nowadays have sensitivities to so many substances. Wintergreen if ingested internally is highly toxic so you should be careful when dealing with it and cinnamon oil can irritate the skin. When used to dress a candle however the combined oils are a speedy way of making things happen.

 

You will need

• • A SMALL BOTTLE

• • 10 DROPS WINTERGREEN OIL

• • 10 DROPS VANILLA OIL

• • 10 DROPS CINNAMON OIL

• • CARRIER SUCH AS ALMOND OIL

 

If you wish you can suspend a small piece of alkanet root (Bloodroot) in the bottle for a deep red color and extra power You can also, for money spells, add gold or silver glitter Method Carefully combine the essential and carrier oils in the bottle. Shake well and repeat as you do so at least three times.

Fast Luck, Fast Luck Bring to me my desire.

Now add the other ingredients if you are using them and leave the bottle in a cool dark place for at least twenty four hours for the oils to blend. After this time you can use the oil to dress your candles. Remember that, as you are drawing luck towards you, you should dress the candle from the top down.
If you are using Fast Luck Oil for a money spell concentrate on money coming towards you, use a green candle and repeat the words above. Use a brown candle if you have a business deal you need to accelerate, but this time it is wise to add a few flakes of silver or gold glitter. To bring love into your life use a pink candle, visualize your ideal person coming into your life and repeat the words above, adding:
If it be right for all concerned.

Let the candles burn out safely.

You should have some indication that this routine is working within about thirty six hours. If there is none, then you must consider what obstacles there are to progress. These may have come to light since you began the spell and you can attempt to remove them before carrying out the procedure again.

Your Essential Oils

Your Essential Oils

 

Oils are an easy way of using plants and herbs in magical workings, particularly when space is at a premium. Below are some oils that we think should be part of every magical practitioner’s way of working. All of them are simple to acquire and, if stored according to directions, will last for some time even though the initial expense may seem to be prohibitive.
CINNAMON

With its warm vibration, it brings love from higher realms, transforming sadness into happiness.
CLARY SAGE

Lifts the spirit and links with eternal wisdom. teaching us to be content with what we have, and that most problems arise in our imagination.
FRANKINCENSE

Holds some of the wisdom of the universe. Able to cleanse the most negative of influences, it works far beyond the auric field, affecting the very subtle realms of energy and adapting the spiritual state. Frankincense is sometimes called olibanum.
GERANIUM

Resonates with Mother Earth and all that is feminine. It comforts, opens our hearts and heals pain.. It typifies the archetypal energy of Goddess culture. Its energy is transformational and as such it must always be used with respect.
JASMINE

Provides us with access to a greater understanding of the spirit. It is said that jasmine brings the angelic kingdom within our reach. It gives understanding and acceptance of the true meaning of spirituality.
LAVENDER

Is caring and nurturing. It will not allow negative emotion to remain present, bringing about healing by allowing the heavenly energies close to the physical.
MYRRH

Brings realization that we no longer need to carry our burdens, releasing them from deep within, allowing us to let go when the time is right. When combined with other oils, it enhances – and is enhanced by – them.
NEROLI

Is one of the most precious essential oils, its vibration being one of the highest. It brings self-recognition because it allows development of a new perspective, allowing us to develop unconditional love.

 

NUTMEG

When the spirit is affected by disappointment, spiritual pain and displacement, nutmeg works to bring hopes, dreams and prayers back into focus.
ROSE ABSOLUTE

Said to be the perfume of the guardians or messengers who guide us in times of need, it is a fragrance which allows us to access the Divine mysteries. It is associated with the true needs of the human heart.
ROSEMARY

Reminds us of our purpose and of our own spiritual journey and encourages confidence and clarity of purpose. It cleanses the aura.
SANDALWOOD

Allows us to make contact with divine beings and brings us into balance with the cosmos. It clarifies our strength of conviction.
YLANG YLANG

It balances the spirit so that we can be open to pleasures of the physical realm while still appreciating spiritual passions. Used magically, it achieves a balanced manifestation.
