Blending oils is not as complicated as one may believe. It's actually quite simple. You will first want to determine the intent for your oil — whether you're creating a love oil to attract positive romantic encounters, a money oil to bring abundance and prosperity, or a traditional altar oil to use in your rituals.
Once your intent has been determined, assemble the oils the recipe calls for. You will need one or two carrier oils as well as essential oils. In a clean container, add 1/8 Cup of your base (carrier) oil — this should be one of the following:
Using an eyedropper, add the essential oil(s) of your choice to the base oil. Depending on the oil's overall purpose, the following essential oils are just a few that can bring great benefits to your recipe:
Be sure to follow the recommended proportions. When blending, it's better to swirl rather than stir. Swish the essential oils into the base oil by swirling in a clockwise direction. Make sure you store your oil blends in a space that is away from heat and moisture - preferably in a cool dark cabinet. If not, you can keep them in dark-colored glass bottles.
Be sure to label your mixtures with their uses and the creation date. Most oils have a shelf-life of approximately six months.
Feel free to add herbs and crystals of your choice to your blend. Again, depending on the purpose of your oil, some herbs to consider include:
Crystals you may consider are:
It is recommended to allow the oil, herb, and crystal blend to sit for two weeks, swirling once a day. After the two weeks, pour your blend over a cheesecloth to separate the herbs and crystals from the oil. Allow the herbs to dry out for two to three days.
At this point, it is safe to transfer your oil blend to your container of choice (i.e. 10 ml roll on, dropper bottle). You can either add the herbs and crystals back to the blend, or not. It is completely your choice.
There are a variety of ways you can use your oils in a ritual setting. They are often used to dress candles for spell work, which enhances the powerful energies and the intention of the oil with the magical symbolism of the candle's color.
Sometimes, oils are used to anoint the body. If you are blending an oil to use for this purpose, be sure that you're not including any ingredients that are irritating to the skin. Some essential oils, such as frankincense and clove, will cause a reaction in sensitive skin and should be diluted and only used very sparingly. Oils applied to the body bring the wearer the energies of the oil and the intentions set with them when created.
Other times, amulets, crystals, and charms can be anointed with your magical oil creations. This is an ideal way to transform them and increase their magical power and energy.
