Magical Oils are a witch’s best friend.
Anointing oils and their use in magic dates back centuries as they play an important role when working with a particular intent. We use these oils in sacred ritual, ceremony, initiations and to anoint almost any object to keep the magic flowing.
Most spell or anoiting oils will contain plant material, as their spirits are powerful. In magic, we are calling upon the spirits of these sacred plants to aid us in our magical workings. Use them wisely and with respect.
What to look for
Perfume oils are no good for magic as they contain synthetic substances. Synthetics contain no magic as they are not from the earth. For magic, use oils that contain natural herbs, flowers, roots, or pure essential oils and absolutes. This isn't to say perfume oils are bad, they're just not what you want for manifesting your intention.
The goal is to seek out the most powerful all natural oils you can find from a reputable practitioner or witchcraft supply store you trust. If you're up to it, you can try your hand at crafting your own oils from all natural ingredients and a strong intention.
Other uses for Anointing Oils
Other objects that can be anointed are door knobs, telephones, talismans and charms, money, vehicles, the list is endless. Be creative, after all, it is your magic.
Ritual Tools can also be anointed with a spell anointing oils to heighten their power and effectiveness. You may wish to anoint the corners of your altar or dab a pentagram for protection.
Crystals are added to spell oils to create an extra boost in power. It is very important to know the structure of your crystals before using oils them. Some crystals should never come into contact with water or oil. Selenite is one of these gems!
Jewelry is a the perfect and fashionable way to carry the magic with you. Enhance the magic contained within earth’s precious minerals by anointing your gemstone jewelry and harnessing the magical energy within.
Oil Burners are a great way to allow the magical vibrations encompass your sacred space or home. Get a tealight oil burner or electric diffuser, add a few drops of your spell anointing oils or essential oils and enjoy!
Carry the magic with you!
Use an Anoiting oil to anoint the body during magical workings or ware as a perfume. When working with a specific intent its not unusual to want to carry the magic and continue manifesting your intent. Some spells and other workings take time to come to fruition. This is where you need to cast for a period of days, weeks or even months to manifest the final result.
Always test a bit on your wrist first as pure essential oils can cause a reaction on sensitive skin. This includes oils that say they’re safe!
