Abramelin Oil – what is it – how to use

Abramelin Oil, sometimes called Oil of Abramelin, is a ceremonial oil created from herbs and spices. It was first discovered in a medieval grimoire called the Book of Abramelin which was written by Abraham the Jew. The recipe for Abramelin oil is believed to be adapted from Jewish Holy Anointing Oil of the Tanakh. This information is described in the Book of Exodus which is attributed to Moses.
Abramelin Oil is a mixture of a number of magickal herbs including myrrh, Cinnamon, Cassia, Galangal root, Olive oil, etc. This oil has a vague resemblance to the Holy Anointing oil that is created from a recipe mentiond in the Bible. As most of us are aware, Jesus brought back myrrh and frankincense from his travels to the East.

Myrrh is the dried resin of a number of trees that are found in countries like Africa and India. Similar to Frankincense, Myrrh is produced by the tree as a reaction to a “wound” in its bark which may extend into the sapwood. In a way, the trees are “bled” to produce myrrh. Myrrh is also valued for its medicinal qualities and is also used for embalming of mummies. At times, Myrrh was as expensive as Gold.

There are many recipes for Abramelin oil which is used around the world. Here is a simple recipe that you can try:
