Today, we are going to elaborate on this process and take a deep dive into the power of essential oils and how they can enhance your blends that align with your intentions.
What are essential oils and how are they used in Magic?
Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts that are created through a distillation process. They can also be created through a cold process method whereby the juice/essences are squeezed out of the materials. Essential oils provide a wonderful staple ingredient for any type of spiritual oil and are a common ingredient in both conjure oils and wiccan oils The process includes blending essential oils with other materials, such as herbs, roots, and/or crystals that are mixed into a carrier oil. Each ingredient is added based on its spiritual or magical properties, and these ingredients can vary depending on the specific intention and goal of the practitioner.
When making any type of conjure oil or wiccan oil, it's important to choose an essential oil that aligns with your desired intention.
