Black Arts Oil NEW
Unlike most magic oils on the market, mine contain no dyes, no synthetic fragrances, no chemical extenders like DPG, and no mineral oil. They are made of natural plant products--either raw herbs and resins and/or essential oils--in a base usually of jojoba, sometimes of olive oil. Because they contain no fragrance oils or synthetics, their scent tends to be both more subtle and more complex than synthetic fragrances. After being applied, the scent can linger for a couple hours; only synthetic fragrances last all day. Why don't I use any synthetics, which are stronger, more predictable, and come in flavors like "metallic" and "ocean"? Because we haven't evolved to tolerate them (so they can have a lot of health issues for us), because I like the smell of real plants, because plant products change with climate and location (so each ingredient has a personal history), and because plant scents can help us tune in to the currents of magic. Scent feeds the soul. Junk food is okay sometimes (I personally love Nag Champa stick incense, which is "choke" full of synthetics), but for a steady diet, choose natural.:)
Since these oils don't use alcohol to carry off the scent, they need warmth to release their fragrance--such as when they are applied to a candle, skin, or dropped in hot water. I go for 20-25% fragrance content per volume, which is perfume strength. This is fine for healthy adults as a dab-on, but don't smear them all over, ingest them or rub on wounds, children, or other animals. All these oils can be used for anointing, dropped into simmering pot pourri to release their scent, or even worn as subtle natural perfumes (not for sensitive skin). See How to use magick oils. These oils are not for scenting soaps or massage oils.
These magic oils are created from my own original recipes based on planetary magic and my knowledge of scent. Some of them had 20 or more versions before I settled on the one offered here. Most are compounded of the highest quality essential oils, but a few are made using the age-old method of maceration of raw materials, where herbs and resins are ground and soaked in the carrier oil. When designing and making these oils, I aim for a result that will best aid and please the sorcerer or witch. I try to put myself in the moment--so for the Moon oils, I put myself outside during the particular phase of the Moon and try to recreate in scent the emotions and spiritual aspects of that moment. I consider that any spiritual endeavor should be carried out with the greatest attention to the aesthetic component. I am confident that these oils will work well for your magical purposes, giving pleasure not only to the spirits but to you, the magic worker. However, as is the norm in the trade, oils are not returnable. For the vegans and animal-lovers out there, the only animal-sourced ingredients I use in these oils are beeswax absolute and butter CO2 extract. Top
If you need an oil made up for a specific ritual, deity, or festival, let me know. I am always creating new oils.
