Oils have a long history in early and modern medicine, and also in modern spirituality. While essential oils are used by modern day osteopathic doctors to treat a variety of ailments, spiritual and magical practitioners of anything from witchcraft to Wicca, from hoodoo to Vodou and any of the African diasporic religions are versed in the use of essential oils in order to combat or bring into being a wide variety of situations.
Historically, plants have been associated with various conditions. Many of the traditional plant associations are based on actual medical effects. Take rue, for example. Rue is an herb that is commonly used for cleansing and purging bad things from your life, and is used in everything from condition oils to floor washes or baths. It strips away negative things. This is primarily because rue is also used for a long list of medical conditions, including, but not limited to, digestion problems, loss of appetite, upset stomach, and to induce a period or cause an abortion. How? Its botanical essences/biochemical makeup helps decrease muscle contractions and reduce swelling. While we never recommend self-medicating with herbs, we can and do recommend utilizing the metaphysical and botanical properties of herbs to bring about desired states of being in a topical or metaphysical way.
Herbs have power. They have the power to heal and the power to hurt. It’s all in how you use them. Patrons of The Mystic’s Altar will recognize herbal blends placed on our dressed candles for specific conditions. These herbs are chosen based on their metaphysical, folkloric, and medical qualities to do everything from purge bad energy to bring about peace in the home or even reunite lost lovers. Skilled practitioners of magical arts are adept at selecting and utilizing herbs and essential oils to assist in ameliorating and augmenting negative or positive conditions in life.
Magical oils are called condition oils because they bring about certain conditions. Where there is hatred, they can sew peace. Where there is discord, they can promote love. Where there is sickness, they can promote health. Our store is full of condition oils of all kinds, from oils for specific issues like marital fidelity, to oils based on the planets which serve to reinforce the energies those planets exude.
Condition oils take time to make. A cold infusion typically takes about a month to complete, as the essential oils of multi-herb blends slowly seep out into the carrier oil. Heated infusions can be completed within a week, but take certain tools and skill as well. Blends involving solely essential oils can be mixed in an instant, and skilled practitioners will pray over or empower them magically. They can then be employed in a variety of ways, including being used to dress or anoint candles, applied to the skin, diffused in a burner, or used in floor washes or personal baths.
There are three main areas in which most people seek metaphysical help, frequently via divination with the tarot, and they are: Money (and job), Love (and family), and Health. Many spiritually aware people seek cleansings or blessings for these purposes as well. Here at the Mystic’s Altar, we have pre-made magical oils to promote all of these things.
