High Altar Oil
I wanted this oil to evoke the power of the medieval cathedral and its capacity to protect and offer sanctuary from harm, because traditionally, oils called "High Altar" are used for breaking hexes, protection, and consecration. Various formulae exist for this magic oil, but I created my own (as usual!). I wanted to call to mind the fragrance of a cathedral so magical workers could draw on the strength of that image. I combined Indian frankincense, myrrh with a touch of rose, and balsam to represent traditional Western incense. I mellowed them with a smoky labdanum and grounded them with vetiver to represent the solidity of medieval architecture that is so protecting. I added the fragrance of beeswax and utilized the apothecary's art to create a smidgen of sweet smoke to evoke altar candles. Traditionally, this oil is used for breaking hexes, protection (especially from magical attacks), and consecration, but also traditionally, it is full of fragrance oils and dpg. Mine is 100% natural. It is also excellent for consecrating magical tools and clearing ritual spaces, especially if you are working within the Western esoteric tradition. Top
