After some work, I have finally
developed a magic oil that smells as good as my faux ambergris solid.
This is a warm, rich, lasting scent that evokes a feeling of
well-being. Magically, ambergris is associated with the Sun, with
kingly aspects of the divine, such as Jupiter, or with ineffable
aspects, like Kether on the Tree of Life. However, some practicioners
use it for prophetic dreaming, and it is also a classic aphrodisiac and
aide in love magick. Although it does not smell watery, because of the
ingredients and references, it can be helpful in water magic.
This oil includes
beeswax, rose, labdanum, various balsamic ingredients (like tonka
bean), earthy scents like vetiver, and a touch of natural sea scents
like seaweed. These are ripened for a few weeks in golden jojoba. Lots
of other shops sell "ambers" that consist entirely of chemicals; there
are no synthetic ingredients whatsoever in this or any of my products,
so you can use it without worry.
