To make an oil that will help attract the attention of others, mix together twenty drops of synthetic
musk, two drops of jasmine, and one drop of ylang ylang in a small bottle and leave where the
full moonlight can strike it for three nights. Be sure to bring it inside before the Sun can find it.
Meanwhile, leave a rose petal, a small piece of crystal quartz, and 1/8teaspoon of powdered
cinnamon in a place where the Sun can see them, making sure to move them before moonlight
can strike them. On the forth day, mix together the two sets of ingredients and leave in a dark
place. Wear when you wish to draw love and admiration to yourself.
It will also enable your employers to see what they love about your work for them.

Wear as a perfume whenever you'll be in the presence of the person you're trying to attract.
Be careful, this stuff is really potent. And don't be surprised if you find others eyeing you as well.
I find it's pretty effective for getting a man's attention. I would probably suggest substituting
amber oil for the rose oil in order to attract a woman.

--seven drops rose oil Seven drops sandalwood oil One clove Seven drops lavender
--Seven times that measure of sweet almond oil

1/2 teaspoon dried yarrow 1/2 teaspoon dried sweet basil
1 teaspoon powdered myrrh 3 drops rose oil

A Handfasting is a Witch's wedding ceremony. This oil how ever, can be used by any couple,
regardless of their marital status! It is one of the few magical oils that contains a dried herb
mixed in with the essences. This is often given to Witch couples on the eve of their Handfasting.
The formula:
Gardenia: for peace and harmony
Musk: for passion and courage
Jasmine: for continuing love
Rose Geranium: for protection against adversity.
Blend together (using the eyedropper, a drop at a time) until the scent
seems perfect. Make up two ounces or so. Then add one pinch dried yarrow.
Yarrow is used in love and marriage spells since it has the power to keep a couple together for
7 years. Seven is the number of Venus, the planet of love. When finished, pour into twin crystal jars.
One of these is given to the woman, the other to the man. Every night the couple should anoint
one another, using their own jars. When seven nights have passed, the oils should be
blended together, poured into one of the jars, and the other jar should be hidden in some secret place.

A famous, controversial oil. There are several variations in the recipe, but all are very earthy
and passionate fragrances. The man who wears this should be prepared for anything!
Start with a base of musk and patchouli. Add cinnamon, carnation, and vanilla oils.
Blend and add until the scent seems right to you. Blend on Tuesday.
This oil should only be worn by men. It doesn't always smell great, but it works as an
aphrodisiac and the results can be quite amazing!

For women who wish to become more attractive (absolutely magnetic) to men, wear this oil.
On a Friday night blend together Jasmine, red rose, a drop of lavender (no more!), a bit of
musk, and ylang ylang oils. This oil should only be worn by women wishing to attract men.

East Wind, the wind of intelligence: Lavender
South Wind, the wind of passion and change: Musk
West Wind, the wind of love and emotions: Rose
North Wind, the wind of riches: Honeysuckle
Wear the appropriate oil when desiring a change in that area of your life.
Also wear to boost spells you may also be working.
South Wind is the catch-all; if your wish doesn't fall into any of the other
categories, use South Wind.

On a Friday evening when the Moon is waxing gather a little orris root, an earthen bowl and
a quantity of pure olive oil. If you are a woman also have a vial of jasmine oil; patchouli will do for.
Lay a pink cloth on the altar. Light pink candles. Pour the orris root into the earthen bowl,
then add about half a cup of olive oil. Stir with the forefinger of your strong hand seven times
clockwise. Now add the essential oil, no less than three drops, no more than seven.
Place the bowl on the altar. Gaze into it, infusing the oil with your desire for love.
Enchant it by saying:
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
Simple and to the point, right? You might want to substitute a favorite love poem or sonnet.
Pour the oil into a jar and cork it tightly. Leave in a dark place, surrounded by the pink altar
cloth, for 7 days. Upon the next Friday night uncork the bottle, strain and then store in the
same bottle until needed. Love oil should only be worn by its creator.

Fast Luck Incense/Oil/Floorwash/Powder/Bath
Patchouli Rose Juniper color: green

Oil of Cinnamon and Oil of Vanilla, with Wintergreen. Used as above to bring luck.
Cinnamon (in powder and chip form) is widely used in African-American folk-magic to draw
business and bring money-luck, hence its use as an essential oil makes good sense in this formula.
Vanilla appears in numerous formulas for love-luck, so again, one is not surprised to find it in Fast Luck.
Wintergreen is an oddity, though -- it has very few magical ascriptions, and it seems to function,
in my experience, primarily as a fragrance that mediates and blends the rather contradictory aromas
of Cinnamon and Vanilla. In any case, without it, one does not get the characteristic "Fast Luck" smell.

Aqueous solution of Citronella. It is put in scrub water to scrub the house.

10 percent Oil of Lemon Grass in alcohol.
Used for luck and power of all kinds. It is the most popular conjure drug in New Orleans.
Those who work with these essential oils know how similar Citronella and Lemongrass smell.
Folks with botanical knowledge will also realize the close relationship between Citronella,
Lemongrass, Vetivert, Palmarosa, and Gingergrass
(in fact, Gingergrass is simply the lesser quality second pressing of Palmarosa grass!).
As my Van Van recipe indicated, the addition of Vetivert (Khus Khus), Palmarosa, and Gingergrass
was to be in very small quantities compared to the Lemongrass and Citronella, which means that
both Chinese Wash and Van Van Oil smell predominantly of citrusy fragrances, with smoky

Use a tall, thin bottle. Fill it halfway up with (Red) Fast Luck Oil.
Top it off with plain water that has been colored bright green with food coloring.
The red oil mixture (symbolizing love and passion) will separate from the green water

created and sprinkle it out. It will separate between uses.

John the Conqueror Oil traditionally consists of broken pieces of John the Conqueror
root (Ipomoea jalapa or I.purga) steeped in Almond or another vegetable carrier oil that
has been tinted purple (or yellow); it is customary to add essential oils as fragrance to suit.
The oil can also be made with powdered I. jalapa root. Some folks strain it afterward.
To enhance the actual weird scent of John the Conqueror root, from which no essential
oil can be extracted, I compound a "woodsy blend" scent, such as Cedarwood and Vetivert,
which smells quite a lot like the John the Conqueror root itself.
This fragrance is NOT part of the "Magick" in the oil, but it does serve as a re-enforcer of
what the real root smells like.
Let the root fragments and/or powder sit in the oil blend at least a week before use --
a month is better. The root is traditionally left in the bottle as it is used. If you are making up
small bottles (e.g. a dram vial or 1/2 oz. bottle), you should put two or three pieces of root in
each bottle. If you work out of a large stock bottle (e.g. 4 oz. or 16 oz.) be sure to refresh the
root with new pieces each time you top up the bottle.
BEWARE commercial John the Conqueror and High Conquering oils! They rarely have the
root in them. all you have to do is look in the bottle: If there is no root in it, and it was made in
a factory, it's very likely a fake.

Recipes vary from person to person. They are generally floral in tone and usually red in color.
Scents used in such an oil may include sweet pea and narcissus (usually only available as
synthetic fragrances, not as essential oils), rose (available as a real essential oil -- called
otto or attar of roses -- but so expensive as to be prohibitively costly for most people,
who therefore use a synthetic fragrance instead), rose geranium (a real essential floral
oil that has a very good rose scent), and other floral synthetics, such as wistaria,
honeysuckle, violet, and the like.
Herbs mixed into in the finished, fragranced oil may include catnip leaf (to entice a lover),
saffron stamens (for love-drawing), rose petals, (for love-drawing), Damiana leaf (to increase
passion) and/or patchouli leaf (ditto). Queen Elizabeth Root (used to attract men) may be
added to the mixture if the person using it is a female or a gay male.
One difficulty many folk-magicians have with floral scents as a basis for magical perfume
oils is that so many of our favorite flowers do not produce a great deal of essential oil.
When this is the case, the oil is very expensive.
But that is not the greatest hurdle we must overcome.
Some flowers, no matter how lovely they smell, do not produce stable essential oils at all.
Whenever that is the case, essential oils from these flowers are unavailable at any
cost and synthetics are the only recourse one has.
The question then becomes one of deciding whether to go with an artificial fragrance
that mimics a given floral scent to a greater or lesser degree -- or to forgo that scent in
favor of one that is available in actual flower-derived form.

When the subject of Witches' ointments is mentioned, the infamous "flying ointments"
immediately come to mind, at least to those with some interest in the history of Witchcraft
and magick. These salves, consisting of psychoactive plants steeped in a fatty
base, were rubbed onto the skin to aid in what is known today as astral projection.
These are not the only types of ointments known to Witches and magicians, however.
Many others have more earthly uses that correlate to those of oils. In fact, any of the oils
mentioned in the Oil section can be converted to ointments simply by adding them to melted
beeswax, lard or (in today's world) vegetable shortening.
However made, ointments should ideally be kept in crystal or porcelain containers.
Realistically, any jars with tight-fitting lids will do
fine. Keep ointments away from heat and light. Be warned - though most of the ointments
discussed in this section are fairly innocuous, some of them are poisonous and may be lethal.
By including them in this work, there is in no way advocating use of such hazardous mixtures.
These ointments form a part of herb magic of long-gone days, and so are included here solely
for their historical interest.
Ointments are easily made.
They consist simply of herbs or oils and a base.
In the past, hog's lard was the preferred base because it was readily available, but vegetable
shortening or beeswax produces the best results.
The base must be a greasy substance that melts over heat but is solid at room temperature.
Some herbalists actually use dinosaur fat (I.e., Vaseline, which is prepared from petroleum)!
There are two basic ways to create magical ointments.
Gently heat four parts shortening over low heat until liquefied. Watch that it doesn't burn.
Add one part dried herbal mixture, blend with a wooden spoon until thoroughly mixed, and
continue heating until the shortening has extracted the scent. You should be able to smell it in the air.
Strain through cheesecloth into a heat-proof container, such as a canning jar.
Add one-half teaspoon tincture of benzoin to each pint of ointment as a natural preservative.
Store in a cool, dark place, such as the refrigerator. Ointments should last for weeks or months.
Discard any that turn moldy, and lay in a fresh batch.
This process creates a more cosmetic ointment without a heavy, greasy feeling.
It is best to prepare it with oils rather than herbs, as it is difficult to strain.
If possible, use unbleached beeswax. If not, use what you can find.
Chip it with a large, sharp knife so that you can pack it into a measuring cup.
Place one-fourth cup or so of beeswax in the top of a double boiler (such as a coffee can
set into a larger pot of water). Add about one-fourth cup olive, hazelnut, sesame or some
other vegetable oil. Stir with a wooden spoon until the wax has melted into the oil.
Remove from the heat and let cool very slightly, until it has just begun to thicken.
(This step is taken so that the hot wax won't evaporate the oils.)
Now add the mixed oils to the wax.
Stir thoroughly with a wooden spoon and pour into a heat-proof container.
Label and store in the usual way.
In the recipes that follow, the recommended method of preparation will be mentioned.
Once the ointment is made and has cooled in its jar, empower it with its particular magical need.
This vital step, remember, directs the energy within the ointment, readying it for your ritual use.
Ointments are usually rubbed onto the body to effect various magical changes.
As with oils, this is done with visualization and with the knowledge that the ointment will do its work.

There are four common methods used for making oils.
Each of these methods is highly effective and is used professionally as well as for home use.
Solar Infusion Method Using the simplers' measure, place the desired amount of
herbs and oil in a glass jar. Cover tightly. Place the jar in a warm, sunny spot.
In Europe and the Mediterranean the jars are placed in sandboxes to attract
greater amounts of heat. Let the oil/herb mixture infuse for two weeks.
People always ask why the oil doesn't go rancid sitting out in the hot sun.
According to natural laws, it should. But for some magickal reason, it seldom does.
I believe it's because of the alchemical fusion of the sun, the herbs, and the oil.
But once strained, the oil will definitely go rancid very quickly if left in the hot sun.
At the end of two weeks, strain the herbs, rebottle your beautiful herbal oil, and store it
in a cool dark area. If you wish a stronger oil, add a fresh batch of herbs to the oil, and
infuse for two more weeks. This will double the potency of your medicinal oil.
Place the oil/herb mixture in a pan with a tight-fitting lid or in glass canning jars.
Put the pan and/or jars in a larger pan with sufficient water to cover up the bottom half of the
container. Turn the oven on the lowest temperature possible and allow the herbs and oil to
infuse for several hours. Check frequently to prevent the oil from overheating and burning.
Place the herbs and oil in a double boiler, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and bring to a low simmer.
Slowly heat for one-half to one hour, checking frequently to be sure the oil is not overheating.
Then lower the heat, and the longer the infusion, the better the oil.
This is a quick and simple method that appeals to many modern-day herbalists.
Oil heats up very quickly. Be mindful of the temperature.
Your preparation can quickly go from a nice herbal oil infusion to deep-fried Comfrey leaves.
Both Crockpots and electric oven roasters allow for a long, slow cooking process.
The roaster is most often used by small professional companies making quality herbal products.
The herbs can macerate in the oil for a long period of time (two to four weeks) and the resulting
oil is of a superior quality. Electric roasters can often be found quite inexpensively at bargain
shops and second-hand stores.
Place the herbs and oil in the Crockpot or roaster and turn to the lowest heat. Place the lid
on and let the mixture steep for the desired length of time. The heat is generally higher in the
Crockpot and usually two to four hours is sufficient to prepare good-quality herbal oils.
Check frequently to protect against overheating and burning. In the roaster, the herb/oil mixture
can steep for two to four weeks. It gives a superior, dark-green herbal oil.
There are several approaches to creating a magickal herbal oil. One, the most difficult, is to use
an extractor and extract the pure essential oils yourself It involves complex equipment, but is
rewarding for the serious practitioner. The results are pure, essential oil. There are several
approaches to creating a magickal herbal oil. One, the most difficult, is to use an extractor and
extract the pure essential oils yourself. It involves complex equipment, but is rewarding for the
serious practitioner. The results are pure, essential oils which can be used in a variety of ways.
Pure oils of an essential, volatile nature may also be purchased commercially. It is important to
know that many of these are too strong to use directly upon the skin, but make excellent incense
by merely placing a couple drops upon a burning piece of charcoal. These oils may also be used
with a fixative, or carrier, such as olive, sunflower, or other oils.
The simplest means of making your own oil is to begin with a fixative oil. This is placed in a sturdy
pan, and to it are added herbaceous parts which have a high content of natural oil within the
cellular structure. You may wish to use the flowering parts, or leaves, and in some cases the root.
Gently bring this to warmth, stirring carefully. Never allow it to boil, and you may accomplish
excellent results by avoiding even a "hot" temperature. This process may be repeated several
times over a day or more.
Thus, the natural oils within the herb are released into solution with the fixative, as they are soluble in oil.
There are many recipes for oils. The herbs are chosen according to their meaning and attributes.
A personal mixture may be made by combining equal parts of three herbs: one for the
Sun sign, one for the Moon sign, and one or the ascendant, or rising sign.
One might also make a protective oil, by combining several herbs known for their ability to
give protection, the individual choices made by preferences of scent. It is important to
experiment. One means of trial and error for finding compatible scents is to take small
amounts of the dried herbs and grind them together. Smell deeply of the aroma, and feel
how it suits you. To make these, fill a jar to within inch from the top with almond oil.
Then add crushed herbs till it is full. Steep in a sunny window for 1 moon cycle, rotating each day.
Strain out the herb and bottle. These can be added to bath salts, soaps or used for anointing candles.

This is only necessary if you are preparing large quantities that you intend to store.
1. Add 1/4 tsp. simple tincture of Benzoin to 1 cup vegetable oil.
Tincture of Benzoin is prepared from the gum of an Indonesian tree,
Styrax Benzoin. Make sure it is simple tincture of Benzoin. Compound
tincture of Benzoin, also known as Friars Balsam, is not suitable.
2. Add 500 I.U. of natural mixed Tocopherols or Vitamin E to 1 cup of vegetable oil.

First infuse the plant in oil. Do this by baking at low heat (120-170 degrees) in a glass
pan with herb and oil together, stir occasionally. Then strain with cheesecloth and a
funnel to separate plant material from the oil. Squeeze out the cheesecloth. Then
grate beeswax and add to hot oil, maybe heating again over a double boiler on the stove.
Pour the viscous green stuff into jars and allow to cool. Can keep in the fridge for a longer shelf life.
Also, adding vitamin E oil to the mixture helps preserve it.

Of the several existing possible translations of the original Latin recipe, all contain herbs
which are poisonous but which may bring on a common experience which is what has
been described as the Witch's Sabat. A combination of the deadly thornapple, henbane,
deadly nightshade, wild celery and parsley (presumably to combat that horrible 'morning
after the Sabat before' breath) were used in a base of hog's fat and this was applied to
two participants who had no notion of what it would do, what witches apparently did or
any knowledge of flying ointments. They both described similar visions of orgiastic rites
performed by demons which begs the question of whether this particular poisonous
combination taps our collective unconscious or a race memory. We may never know
as those are so deadly, it is unlikely research could possibly proceed. This has legal
alternatives to henbane, datura, monkshood, cowbane, mandrake, and other reputed
ingredients of the ancient flying ointments.

To attract love, rub Romance Magnet Oil onto a pink candle and then burn it for three
hours a day, every day, until the person makes an advance. When used for an existing
relationship, the ritual may be ended when harmony is established or resumed.
If you have no one special in mind, burn the candle until a potential lover appears.
The candle should be snuffed rather than blown out, the reason being that a spirit
resides in the flame and to blow it out would blow your prayer or wish away.

On a Friday evening when the Moon is waxing gather a little orris root, an earthen bowl and a
quantity of pure olive oil. If you are a woman also have a vial of jasmine oil or pachouli for men.
Lay a pink cloth on the altar. Light pink candles.
Pour the orris root into the earthen bowl, then add about half a cup of olive oil.
Stir with the forefinger of your strong hand seven times clockwise.
Now add the essential oil, no less than three drops, no more than seven.
Place the bowl on the altar. Gaze into it, infusing the oil with your desire for love.
Enchant it by saying:
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
Simple and to the point, right? You might want to substitute a favorite love poem or sonnet.
Pour the oil into a jar and cork it tightly.
Leave in a dark place, surrounded by the pink altar cloth, for 7 days.
Upon the next Friday night uncork the bottle, strain and then store in the same bottle until needed.
Love oil should only be worn by its creator.

The most important production method for Essential oils is distillation.
The basic principle of distillation is the same but it is carried out in different ways
depending on the botanical material and the condition of the material.
Three types of distillation are used:
1. Water
2. Water and steam
3. Direct steam
Distillation is basically, producing steam. The steam is passed through the herbal material.
The steam carries the Essential oil from the plant in suspension which means the droplets of
essential oils are not dissolved in the steam but remain separate as droplets of oil.
When the steam is cooled it reverts to the liquid state which is water and in most cases the
oil floats on the surface of the water. The oil is then separated from the water by dripping or pouring.
1. Water distillation is used when the plant material has been dried and will not be damaged by boiling.
It is also used for powdered materials such as powdered almond, and flowers, such as orange
and rose, that need to float freely as they tend to lump together when just steam is passed
through them. The material comes into direct contact with the boiling water and much care
needs to be taken that the water does not boil away and cause the plant material to burn.
Another example of an oil prepared by this method is turpentine gum. Turpentine gum is
collected from a species of Pine (Pinus palustris) and the gum, wood chips and pine needles
are placed in the distilling chamber with rain water. This mixture is heated until the plant
and oil are condensed in the condensing chamber. Turpentine oil is not affected by very excessive heat.
2. The second method of distillation is water and steam.
This is used for either fresh or dried plant material that would be damaged by boiling.
The plant material is supported on a perforated grid.
The water level is below the grid and low pressure, wet steam passes through the plant material.
The most important aspect of this method is that the steam is never really hot and always at low
pressure. Cinnamon and clove oils are prepared by this method.
3. Direct steam distillation is similar to the second method but the steam is hotter and passed
through the plant material at a higher pressure. This method is used for fresh plant material
that has a high boiling point such as seeds, roots and wood. It is also used for fresh plant
material such as peppermint and spearmint.
The crop is cut and placed in a metal distilling tank on a truck.
Steam is forced through the fresh herbs and the oil droplets are carried by the steam
through a vapor pipe at the top of the tank onto a cool condensing chamber.
Cold Pressing or Expression:
This method is mainly used to prepare citrus oils such as orange, lemon and tangerine.
One method involves puncturing the oil glands by rolling the fruit over sharp projections that
actually pierce the oil glands. The fruit is then pressed which removes the oil from the glands.
It is then washed off with a fine spray of water. The juice is extracted by another tube.
The oil is then separated from the water by rotating it at a very high speed.
Another method involves separating the peel from the fruits and then cold pressing them.
The Essential oil is collected along with small amounts of juice, which is separated.
This is an old method which was used in the production of perfumes and pomade extracts for perfumery.
Flower petals such as rose or jasmine are layered onto warm oils, cold fat or wax.
This process is repeated each day until the base is saturated with the Essential oil.
The resulting waxes or pastes contain up to 1 percent of Essential oil.
The Essential oil is then extracted from the wax with a volatile liquid such as ethyl alcohol.
In the final step the ethyl alcohol is evaporated at low temperatures and reduced
pressure so that the pure Essential oil remains as a fairly thick liquid. Cold enfleurage has
the advantage that even the most delicate components of the flower oils are preserved.
The disadvantages are that it is not very effective and it is very expensive.
Flower oils prepared with this method do not contain terpene-hydrocarbons, which indicates
that these compounds are not present as such in the flower, but form during distillation.
Solvent Extraction
This is the most widely used modern method to prepare oils from flowers.
The petals are mixed into a volatile solvent such as petroleum, ether or benzene,
until the Essential oil is completely dissolved in the solvent. The solution is then filtered
and the solvent is evaporated at reduced pressure. The result of solvent extraction is a concrete.
The solvent is removed from the concrete by vacuum pressure without the use of heat to avoid
any harmful effect to the oil. The concentrated essence that results is called an absolute.
Absolutes are highly concentrated flower products without the natural waxes.
The main advantage of extraction over distillation is that uniform temperatures are maintained
throughout the process. High temperatures during the distillation process can produce altered
chemical composition of the oil which alters the natural odor. However, this method is expensive
compared to distillation, and chemicals or solvents used in the process may still be present after evaporation.
'Glycerin will extract the following - sugars, enzymes (dilute), glucosides, bitter compounds,
saponins (dilute), and tannins. Absolute alcohol will extract the following - alkaloids (some),
glycosides, volatile oils, waxes, resins, fats, some tannins, balsam, sugars, and vitamins.'
you would use the solvent that will give you the healing properties that you need out of
the plant. And for those that don't like the alcohol taste, or bite, the tincture can be mixed
in hot water and left for a few minutes to evaporate most of the alcohol off.

There is nothing more satisfying than gathering a basket of fresh jasmine, honeysuckle or
rose blossoms on a warm summers day and then preparing your own infused oil.
There are three methods for preparing an infused herbal oil. You can use fresh or dried herbs.
Flowers are best fresh, although the perfume of some flowers intensifies with drying such
as gardenia, daphne and boronia. If using fresh, double the quantity as all recipes given
are for dried herbs. If using fresh herbs for any of these methods leave the herbs to wilt for
six hours to reduce their water content which will spoil the final product.
15 gm (1/2 oz) dried or if fresh use 30 gm (1 oz) herb (this is the total amount so if you are
using a blend make sure you do not have more than this) 1 cup of oil
Measure the herbs and oil and mix the oil to the herbs in a stainless steel bowl.
Heat over water bath (a saucepan 1/4 filled with water) also known as a double boiler,
which should be simmering. Make sure the bowl is not sitting on the bottom of the pot but is
floating in the water. Keep the lid on the oil. Stir occasionally and simmer for 30 minutes.
Watch the oil does not get too hot. It should not smoke or bubble. It can burn easily and
will develop an acrid smell if it overheats, which is very difficult to disguise.
Strain through four layers of butter muslin or some other very fine non-metal strainer.
Strain twice if necessary as it is important to get all herbs out of the oil to prevent the
herbal oil from going rancid or moldy. Essential oils can be added at this stage for perfume
and added therapeutic benefits.
Use the same quantities of herbs and oil as for the waterbath method or approximately 3
tablespoons of finely cut herbs to 300ml (10 oz) of oil. The quantity of herb can be increased
to produce a stronger oil.
Put the herbs in a jar with a tight fitting lid and pour over the oil. Make surethe herbs are
completely covered with oil. Add one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or white wine to
help break down the plant material. Leave the jar to sit in the sun all day and in a warm
cupboard at night for two weeks. Strain through four layers of muslin. This process can be
repeated two to three times to give a stronger oil.
The final product should be strong enough to leave an aroma when massaged on the skin.
Always test infused oils on the skin. Don't rely on just your nose.
Use the same quantities of herbs and oil as for Waterbath method.
Place the herbs and oil in a crockpot and leave on a low heat for two hours.
Follow the recipe above for straining.

2 - 3 oz. dried herbs or 3 - 4 oz. fresh
1 1/4 cups unblended vegetable oil (preferably sunflower or olive)
A heat-proof container with a tight-fitting lid (jam jars work well)
Chop the herb and put it in the container with all the oil. Put the container in a pan filled
with water to within 1 inch of the top of the container of oil. Simmer slowly for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, allow the oil to cool, and strain well. Discard the spent herbs (makes lovely
compost). Refill the canister with the remaining herbs and return to the water bath (remember
to replace the lid). Simmer for another 2 hours.
Be sure to check the water level occasionally so as to not burn the oil.
When the oil has cooled enough to work with, pour it through a jelly bag or sieve lined with
cheesecloth. If using fresh herbs, there may be a watery liquid at the bottom of the oil.
This must be separated and discarded, or else it will spoil the oil over time.
This oil can be used as a base for ointments, creams, or salves, or as a massage oil.

Aromatic oils and rectified alcohol can be combined. The oils seep into the alcohol to produce
an essence. Oils may be captured by evaporation from flower petals. Vegetable, nut, or fruit
oils can be used as a medium for steeping aromatic plants to extract volatile oils. Aromatic oils
can also be steeped in alcohol to extract essence.
To make an oil, pick your own fresh herbs or purchase dried herbs form a reputable source.
Pack a large jar with the chosen herb and pour in any favorite mono unsaturated or
polyunsaturated oil. Use enough to cover the herb. Close tightly. Label the jar and place in
a sunny place for several weeks. Strain out the herb by pouring through cheesecloth into a fresh jar.
Hold the cheesecloth over the opening of the jar containing the herbs and secure with a rubber band.
Invert the jar and pour the infused oil through the cheesecloth.
Before discarding the herbs, squeeze all the oil out of them. Repeat the entire procedure.
Repack a clean jar with more of the same herb. Add the infused oil, plus enough additional
oil to cover the herbs. Store again in sunlight. Strain again through cheesecloth. Pour the oil
into a labeled jar and store until needed.

Here's what you'll need
1 cup pure beeswax
2/3 cup of jojoba oil mixed with 1/4 cup of wheat germ oil
9 drops of the pure essential oil of juniper berry
9 drops of the pure essential oil of bog myrtle
9 drops of the pure essential oil of sandalwood
9 drops of the pure essential oil of yarrow
9mL total of a combination of the pure essential oils of chamomile, rose otto, jasmine
3 grams of poppy petals *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of hops *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of wormwood *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of dittany of Crete *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of passionflower *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of skullcap *do not crush or they won't strain*
3 grams of lavender *do not crush or they won't strain* In a glass
double boiler (a pot used in making candles to melt the beeswax
at a lower temperature and prevent wax fires) - do not use metal, melt the beeswax
gently using as low a heat as possible. Once the beeswax has melted, mix in half of
the jojoba/wheat germ oil combination until it is smooth.
Once the mix is smooth (you have just made the base) then add your herbs to this mixture.
Once added, keep at as low a temperature as possible, stirring constantly with a wooden
spoon putting your magical intention into the mixture so as to charge it (or a very clean stick
which you sanded and created just for this purpose. Doing this increases the magical intent
of the mixture and so helps give it a boost).
After 33 min, ensure that the beeswax is quite liquid and use a mesh strainer you don't intend
to use again to strain out the herbs from the mixture of beeswax and jojoba oil and place the
mix back into the glass double boiler. Don't worry if you still have some herb in it however the
herb will decay and so this shortens the life of your mix. By this time, if you have kept your
mixture at a constant low temperature, you should notice that it has a slightly different consistency
from cooling. Now combine the remaining jojoba oil and the wheat germ oil with the mixture the
flower based essential oils (jasmine, rose, etc) in a separate container. Before the beeswax and
jojoba oil mix begins to harden and without adding more heat, add first the pure essential oils
(bog myrtle, juniper berry, etc) then the essential oils and base oils mix .
This needs to be done when the mixture is as cool as possible but still fluid as essential oils
are volatile and lose potency when heated to too high a temperature.
Now that you have finished you can pour your mix into glass, heatproof jars (as it will still be warm)
and let it cool. Cap only after it has cooled and store in a cool, dark place. I suggest storing it in
the fridge with the jar tightly capped to avoid moisture getting in. Use within a month -this mixture
is not suitable for long term storage but can last under perfect conditions for 2 - 3 months.
This ointment is potent. Use it carefully and treat it with respect as you should all herbs and
essential oils. Just because they are herbs, doesn't mean they are safe. To use, apply first a
small amount to the inside of your elbow to check for reactions. Then if it is safe, apply a small
amount in a thin coating to the inside of your wrist and a small amount to your temples.
For faster absorption, spread a thin coating on the soles of your feet. While books which talk
about flying ointments suggest smearing it all over your body, I do not recommend this approach.
Keep this mix away from your eyes nose, mouth and other sensitive areas of your body.
Contrary to what you may have read on the web, this should *not* be placed in the genital
area of the body. Do *not* ingest this mixture. As this mixture contains oils with contraindications,
I suggest that you avoid using this mix if you: are pregnant, have high blood pressure, have a
history of mental illness, or if you are suffering from prolonged insomnia.
Alternate base combinations - these vary in room temperature state from quite solid to quite liquid.
You can vary the firmness of the mixture you need by altering the amount of beeswax or oil used -
more beeswax for a firmer mix, more oil or a softer mix.
Recipes for bases are guidelines only and after adding herbs or oils, you may feel the need to
adjust the firmness. I suggest placing a teaspoon of the mix in the freezer to checkfor firmness
before adding more wax or oil. There is no need for tincture of
benzoin as is so popular with some recipes as this tincture is used for mixtures containing a
shortening or fatty base where the fat is solid at room temperature.
