A few drops of this amber
liquid in water creates milky cloud forms that are an excellent aid to
scrying, especially with a dark background. The drops bloom
impressively and the forms created tend to stay put instead of
diffusing unless you stir up the water. (We had a difficult time
photographing this effect, since the Milk forms layers of clouds and
smoke in the water.) The philtre smells lightly of storax, a Moon scent.
It is also wonderful for honoring the Maiden and Venus work (add a few
drops to incense or to unlit charcoal tabs, but remember it is almost
pure alcohol). This philtre is based on a 200-year-old formula that we
modified for magical use. It combines best Thai benzoin, refined storax
resin, fragrant cyperus root, cinnamon bark, nutmeg, and musk seeds
with 95% organic grain alcohol. This mellows for a moon before being
strained and packaged in brown bottles with glass droppers. Do not
ingest or apply to skin.
