Myrrh

goat's milk homemade soap bath bar

  • 1 cup grated unscented soap
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp. Apricot oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Angelica
  • ½ Tbsp. crushed Bay
  • ½ Tbsp. crushed Basil
  • 6 drops Myrrh oil

Place grated soap in a heat-proof non-metallic container and add the hot water and apricot oil. Leave until it is cool enough to handle, and then mix together with your hands. If the soap is floating on the water, add more soap. Leave to sit for 10 minutes, mixing occasionally, until the soap is soft and mushy.

Once the soap, water, and oil are blended completely, add the dry ingredients. Once the mixture is cool, then add the essential oils (essential oils evaporate quickly in heat). Enough essential oils should be added to overcome the original scent of the soap.

Blend thoroughly and then divide the soap mixture into four to six pieces. Squeeze the soaps, removing as much excess water as possible into the shape you desire, and tie in a cheesecloth. Hang in a warm, dry place until the soap is completely hard and dry.

Here we have a tried and true invisibility powder for when you don’t want to be seen. For best results, this powder should be created at night during the Dark Moon.

In a mortar and pestle, grind together:

  • 1 part Fern leaf, dried
  • 1 part Poppy seeds

Add:

  • 2 parts Slippery Elm powder
  • 1 part Myrrh
  • 1 part Marjoram, dried
  • 3 parts Dillweed, fresh if possible

Grind all together, mixing well. Add 9 drops almond tincture (almond cooking extract is great.) with enough spring water to make everything barely moist, and mix in well.

Place in a ceramic bowl, spreading as thinly as possible, and dry the mixture over low heat, stirring it occasionally, until it seems lightly browned. Pour back into mortar, and grind again, enchanting:

Things Seen, and Things Not Seen:
Let me walk here in between.

When finely powdered, store in a clear glass container. It will keep its power for years. Sprinkle, just a little bit, on yourself, objects, or in a place to be made invisible.
