Abramelin Oil - French, German, and Crowley
Renaissance man drawing a magic square as in German AbramelinThis wonderful oil is used not only in the Abramelin operation outlined in The Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage (a months-long purification for readying oneself to communicate with one's angel and subsequently to compel demons) but is also made use of by magic workers of all kinds. Sorcerers incorporate it into pact-making, and witches and rootworkers utilize it logically enough for binding spells (often combined with dragon's blood oil), self-anointing or initiation, and communicating with all sorts of spirits. Alchemy Works provides this oil in three versions. The first is called the French version because it is made according to the recipe in Mathers' translation of the French manuscript of the German grimoire of the 1400s: one part myrrh, two parts cinnamon, 1/2 part galangal, and half the total weight in the best olive oil. Paris at the time of AbramelinThe second is made from the recipe in collected German manuscripts of the book: 1 part myrrh, 2 parts cinnamon, and 1/2  part calamus. In both cases, the ingredients are ground and macerated for at least one month so that the oil takes up all the complexities of the herbs. The herbs are then allowed to settle out, leaving their scent in the oil, and the oil is decanted into glass bottles. We also add a minimal amount of essential oil versions of these herbs to bring out their fragrance. These historical versions of the oils are not as likely to burn one's skin as is the modern Crowley version, which we also make. The Crowley version is more expensive because there is a high proportion of costly essential oils--myrrh especially so. (Please note that the size is 5 milliliters, not 2 drams). It is composed of cinnamon, galangal, and myrrh essential oils with a very high ratio of essential oil to carrier oil-- higher than perfume strength, which is 1:4 at the highest. Cinnamon essential oil does indeed burn the skin. Our founder, Harold, resisted making and selling this version for many years on account of its potential to burn one's skin, but so many people asked for it that he decided to go ahead and make it. Alchemy Works continues to offer the Crowley version, but with caution and a clear warning that you can sustain a burn from cinnamon oil and should be very careful if you apply it to your skin. Top
