Yule Soap

Yule Soap

1 cup grated unscented soap

1/4 cup hot water

1 tbsp. apricot oil

1 tbsp. chamomile

1/2 tbsp. rosemary

1/2 tbsp. ginger

6 drops frankincense oil

6 drops myrrh oil

3 drops cinnamon oil

Place grated soap in a heat-proof non-metallic container and add the hot water and apricot oil. Leave until it is cool enough to handle, and then mix together with your hands. If the soap is floating on the water, add more soap. Leave to sit for 10 minutes, mixing occasionally, until the soap is soft and mushy. Once the soap, water, and oil are blended completely, add the dry ingredients. Once the mixture is cool, then add the essential oils (essential oils evaporate quickly in heat). Enough essential oils should be added to overcome the original scent of the soap. Blend thoroughly and then divide the soap mixture into four to six pieces. Squeeze the soaps, removing as much excess water as possible into the shape you desire, and tie in a cheesecloth. Hang in a warm, dry place until the soap is completely hard and dry.

Job-Hunting Charm

This charm will only work if you are seriously and intensively looking for a job, sending out resumes and scheduling interviews.

You Will Need:

A cinnamon stick

A High John the Conqueror Root

Green or gold thread

Three Kings Oil (made of frankincense oil, oil of myrrh, and spikenard)

Red flannel drawstring bag

Tie the cinnamon stick and the High John the Conqueror Root together with the thread. Anoint them with the Three Kings Oil, and place them in the bag.

Every morning before you go out job-hunting, anoint the charm with a bit more oil. Keep it in your pocket or bag as you go out to look for a job.

If your situation is the same after nine days, you may want to look at different alternatives or change your game plan. It could be a signal that the field you are looking it is not right for you for that you, or that you may find opportunities elsewhere.
