EEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee I'm so behind. It doesn't pay to sick!
As I try to catch up to the PBP group, I am working with essential oils to make a line of Chakra candles.E for essential oil. Pagan use that is.
I have used these gifts from plant and blossom for my soap making for many years. I have friends that are aromatherapists and rely on these oils to help their clients.
Recently, as I wander down my Pagan path I have discovered new ways to use essential oils and I thank the old ones before us for taking the time to journal in Herbal Grimoires, and modern pagans for keeping tradition and knowledge alive. I have collected a few excellent books on the topic from my new fav used book shop and am trying to [find the time] keep a herbal Grimoire myself.
Essential oils may be used in salt bath before ritual or new sea salt sprays to use when a bath prior to ritual isn't possible. A candle for meditation can be enhanced with the addition of an oil that you find pleasing.
Essential oils are used for anointing candles prior to use or for spell work.
Add a bit of related oil to your dream pillow filling and extend it's life. Create a perfume spell to protect, attract or repel.
I am still learning the magickal use of each oil and how I will use them. It will be a long lesson but I am happy that my creative path has lead me by the nose. Back to work!
