Let’s Talk Witch – Use of & Combining of Magical Oils

Use of & Combining of Magical Oils

Magical oil is very useful to practitioners of all types of magic.  It can be used:

To anoint candles for candle burning rituals

To anoint, consecrate, or bless ritual objects

To wear to increase certain powers or talents you would like to enhance, with an added bonus of having a pleasing scent.

As a substitute for burning incense to experience a particular scent if you are in a place where incense is frowned upon.

 

Combining Your Own

Oil Many witches prefer to create their own magical oils.  By creating the oil blend personally, their own power and intent will be transferred to the blend, which cannot happen when buying premade blends.  It can also be more cost efficient to create your own blends.

Recipes are based on essential oil, not synthetic.  While synthetic oil is generally much cheaper than essential oil and might smell similar, synthetic does not hold any magical properties as it is missing the root and essence of the plant. Please beware some essential oils can be toxic, harmful to skin, harmful to ingest, or cause allergic reactions in some people.  Always use caution and good judgment.  If you are creating a blend that will be worn on the skin or added to a bath, it needs to be tested before you get it all over yourself or someone else.  An easy way to test is to dab a small amount of the oil on your arm or elbow, and wait a few hours.  If nothing happens, you probably aren’t allergic.  Always, if you are unsure whether or not an essential oil can be ingested, don’t ingest it or else do good research beforehand.  With a good bit of common sense everyone can practice magic safely.

Lady A’s Spell of the Day for January 30th – Energy Elixir


Native American Comments & Graphics

Energy Elixir

If you’re like most people, you hit a slump late in the afternoon. When you need a quick pick-me-up that’s all natural and caffeine- and sugar-free, drink this magick Energy Elixir to boost your vitality and clear your mind.

Ingredients/tools needed:
A clear glass bottle with a cap or stopper
A small piece of rutilated quartz crystal
Spring water
A few drops of essential oil of peppermint or spearmint
A few drops of essential oil of lemon
A few drops of essential oil of sweet orange
The Strength card from a tarot deck

Best time to perform the spell: Any time

Collect the ingredients needed for this spell. Wash the bottle and the quartz crystal with mild soap and water, and let them dry. Cast a circle around the area where you will do your spell. Fill the bottle with spring water. Add the essential oils, then the crystal. Cap the bottle and shake it three times to charge it.

Lay the Strength card face up on your altar, table, or another surface. Set the bottle on the card. Leave the bottle sitting on the card for at least ten minutes, so the water can absorb the energy of the image. Remove the crystal. Open the circle. Sip this supercharged elixir whenever you need an energy infusion.

Basic Oil Recipe

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 – The Self-dedication Ritual


Dragon Comments & Graphics

The Self-dedication Ritual

First, spend a few sunrises or late at night contemplating what you want to gain from Wicca. Write it down in your Mirror Book (This is like a journal that you keep about your thoughts about wicca, divination, or anything else you might want to put in such a journal). Second, think about what you wish to give to Wicca. This could be anything from connecting with other Wiccans on the Web to anything that cares for the Earth. Write this down in your Mirror Book. This done, you are ready to go to the next step of performing the actual ritual.

The Rite

Prepare a ritual bath and add some salt and a few drops of sandalwood or frankincense oil to it. If you have to use a shower, take a washcloth and put salt and oil on it, then rub it all over your body.

When you have finished your bath, dress comfortably to go to a secluded area outside. You can do this anywhere in the outdoor but you need to be in a place where you won’t be disturbed. All you need to take with you is some essential oil like sandalwood, frankincense, cinnamon, or any other you feel would be appropriate.

When you get to the place you have decided upon, take off your shoes and sit quietly on the ground. Sit until you are calm and relaxed feeling the Earth’s energies around you.

Then stand up and look out where you are and let the Deities draw you to the right place for the ritual.

When you have found the right place, sit down and set the oil on the ground beside you. Use deep breathing and relax yourself again, let the energies flow around and through you.

Call upon the Goddess and the God in your own way. Tell them what you desire and that you wish to dedicate yourself to the Wiccan way and to them. Ask them to fill you with their divine energy.  When you do this, you may feel a surge of energy or a peaceful feeling. Whatever happens you will know that the Deities have heard you. You will feel different.

After you have finished talking the the Lord and Lady, take some of the oil and draw the symbols for the Goddess and the God on you somewhere. Visualize the symbols glowing in white light and flowing into your body.

Thank the Deities and sit and quietly meditate on the experience before you leave.

It is done. Go home and celebrate your experience in some way. Share the excitement with any of your wiccan friends. It’s your celebration, so do it in your way.

Herb of the Day for Oct. 14th – Rosemary

Herb of the Day

Rosemary      

(Rosmarinus officinalis)

 
The name comes from the Latin ros, “dew”, and maris, “ocean”, meaning “dew of the sea”. In the sixth century Charlemagne decreed that rosemary should be grown in all the imperial gardens. Christian legend claims that flowers were originally white but were
turned varying shade of blue when Mary hung her blue cloak over a rosemary bush.                                                                                                                                                   
Medicinal Uses: Rosemary is a stimulant of the circulatory system. It is used to treat bites and stings externally. Internally it is used to treat migraines, bad breath, and to stimulate the sexual organs. The tea makes a mouthwash for bad breath. It is also used to treat nervous disorders, upset stomachs, and is used to regulate the menstrual cycle and to ease cramps. The oil benefits stomach and nerves. Use rosemary in salves for eczema, wounds, and sores. Mix the crushed leaves generously into meats, fish, potato salads, etc. at your next picnic to prevent food poisoning. The essential oil is used in aromatherapy as an inhalant and decongestant, and to enhance memory and clear concentration. It is also used in lotions to ease arthritis and muscle pain. It is a strong antiseptic, and good in shampoos and hair rinses. An infusion of the leaves has also been used, alone or with borax, as a scalp wash to prevent baldness.                
Steep the herb in white wine for a week and strain. Rub the rosemary wine into gouty or paralyzed limbs. Taken internally, the wine quiets the heart and stimulates the kidneys, brain, and nervous system. Rosemary tea relieves depression. The leaf and flowers are stimulating to the liver and the digestion. For this reason, rosemary is a classic herb for migraine headache when associated with liver or stomach torpidity.                                                            
Rosemary increases the circulation and slightly raises the blood pressure. To make the tea, steep two teaspoons of the dried flowering tops in one cup of water for twenty minutes. Take one-fourth cup four times a day. Rosemary and coltsfoot are smoked as herbal tobacco to relieve asthma and lung conditions. Rosemary essential oil is often blended with cedar wood, geranium, ginger, lemon balm, myrtle and sweet basil.

When used as a tea, the dose should not exceed one cup per day. Overdose can cause fatal poisoning. Even small doses of Rosemary oil can cause stomach, kidney and intestinal problems, and large amounts may be poisonous. If you’re pregnant, avoid using the herb altogether.

Magickal uses: Rosemary is an herb of consecration and purification from disease. As an herb of purification, rosemary can be a substitute for frankincense. Add it to incense and to the ritual chalice and distributed to guests. Burning it before performing magick will rid the area of negativity. It is carried in the hand during funerals and cast into the grave, as the coffin is lower into it. Rosemary or rosemary with juniper berries is burned as a protection from disease. Stuff healing poppets with rosemary for increased healing strength. Rub the hands with an infusion before beginning the healing process. Place it in books and drawers to repel moths. Place under the pillow or bed for restful sleep and protection from nightmares. Hang at the doors to repel thieves and disease. Wearing a chaplet improves the memory. The aroma of the wood preserves youth. Add it to the bath for this and its purifying qualities. Add to mixtures for love or lust. An answer may be divined by inhaling the smoke of rosemary. Wrap the powdered leaves in a piece of linen and wear on the right arm to be rid of depression and to generally improve the emotions. Rosemary in all of its forms is used for protection and banishment. Rosemary leaves under your pillow do away with evil spirits and bad dreams. It is hung on porches and doors to keep thieves out. Rosemary is grown to attract elves.

Properties: Stimulant, diaphoretic, carminative, nervine, aromatic, cephalic antispasmodic. Contains volatile oil: composed of borneol, camphene, camphor, cineole, limonene, linalool, isobutyl acetate, 3-octanone, terpineol, verbenol, flavonoids: apigenin, diosmetin, diosmin, genkwanin, 6-methoxygenkwanin, hispidulin, sinensetin, luteolin and derivatives. Rosmarinic acid and other phenolic acids, diterpenes such as picrosalvin (carnosol), carnosolic acid and rosmariquinone

Growth: Rosemary is a perennial that prefers mild climates, so it needs to be grown indoors where the winters are harsh, or very heavily mulched. It reaches 2-4 feet in height, and is tolerable of poor soils. Rosemary has narrow, needle-like leaves and lovely blue flowers. Cut back after flowering to keep it from becoming leggy. It is an evergreen shrub with numerous branches; ash-colored. scaly bark and bears opposite, leathery, thick leaves which are lustrous and dark green above and downy white underneath. They have a prominent vein in the middle and margins which are rolled down. The pale blue, sometimes white, relatively small, flowers grow in short axillary racemes, arranged in false whorls on the upper parts of the branches, blooming during April and May, or later in cooler climates.

Infusion: steep 1 tsp. dried flowering tops or leaves in 1/2 cup water. Take up to 1 cup per day.

Tea: prepare ordinary tea, put a pinch of ground ginger in the drink for variety. Drink 3 or 4 cups per day.

Tincture: a dose is from 5 to 20 drops.
