Anointing using oils

Anointing your body

Focus on your intent for using the oil. Use an inward motion (toward you) to attract things into your life (such as love, money, luck, and such like things.)Use an outward motion (away from you) to be rid of negative influences (such as ill health, evil spirits). Do not move in alternate directions, either inward or outward.

Anointing a candle

Mentally divide the candle into two parts. Starting in the middle, rub the oil towards the candles wick. Starting at the middle again, rub the oil towards the bottom. Do not rub up and down. Focus on your intent while doing this.

Anointing bath water

Add a few drops to 1/3 - 1/2 cup of milk (this is the carrier for the oil) and add to your bath water. Do not add any soap or bubbles to the water as it will upset any vibrational energies. Soak in the water and meditate on your desire. MENTAL NOTE - this type of bath is used before a ritual or spell and is not intended for washing in, though may be used at any other time for relaxation or anything like it.

Blending oils

Assemble the oils called for in a recipe. In a clean, sterilized jar, add 1/8 cup of one of the following vegetable oils: Safflower, sunflower, coconut, apricot kernel, jojoba, almond, hazelnut, grapeseed or olive oil.
Using an eye dropper, or the single drop dispensers included on most bottles of essential oil, add the oils according to the recipe.
Swirl the oils into the base oil, don't stir.
Store the oils away from heat, light and moisture in an airtight, opaque or dark coloured glass bottle. Label them and include the date.
