Three Magickal Oil Recipes

Magickal oils are among the oldest methods of enchantment.

The ancient Gypsies from India always carried around oils so that they could create magick at a moment’s notice. As they were nomads, it was difficult for them to find fresh herbs and roots wherever they traveled. So they hit upon the best method of preservations, dried herbs and essential oils made from fresh herbs which supposedly keep the essence of the botanicals for years.

Voodoo from Africa had reached the city of New Orleans in North America and in the late nineteenth century, Hoodoo inspired another magickal renaissance. The essential oils made by Hoodoo practitioners were supposedly prepared to cure certain “conditions” and they came to be called “Condition oils”.

Following are some recipes for Condition oils.

Van Van Oil (also called Hindu Grass Oil)

This is versatile oil which attracts love, luck and prosperity and at the same time, repels malevolent magic directed at us. Van Van is a blend of five wild Asian grasses: lemongrass, citronella, palmarosa, gingergrass and vetiver. Add them to a base of jojoba oil. Sometimes patchouli (another Asian grass) can be added for extra power.

Method of making the oil: Grind the lemon zest, lovage and vervain in a mortar and pestle. Transfer the contents into a bottle. Add the lodestone chip. Cover with sweet almond oil which is a base.
