This incense formula may be used in your rituals to destroy an enemy’s power to harm you. Can also be used as an “Uncrossing Incense”.

  • 1 oz powdered Sandalwood
  • 1/2 oz powdered Bay leaves
  • 1/2 oz powdered Dill seed
  • 1 tsp Asafoetida
  • 1/4 tsp Saltpeter
  • 1 dram Uncrossing Oil
  • 2 drams of tincture of Benzoin

Powder all the solid ingredients and mix them well with your mortar and pestle. Mix all the liquid ingredients and dissolve the saltpeter in them. Slowly add the liquid ingredients to your powdered herbs. Spread in a tin pan or plastic container and allow to dry for 30 minutes to an hour.

When dry, simply crumble up and you have your incense. The traditional method of burning this type of incense is by placing it on a hot charcoal in your incense burner.

handshake2I don’t know if this actually works or not, but in certain situations, it might be worth a try.

  • 10ml unscented Body Lotion
  • 2 drops Lemon oil
  • 1 drop Geranium oil
  • 1 drop Sandalwood oil
  • 20 drops Rose oil (see note below)

Blend well and massage into your hands.
Now, if you shake somebody’s hand they’ll do anything for you.

Note: Because rose oil is very expensive, you may dilute it in a carrier oil. Just be sure that the fragrance of the roses is still strong and rich.

Herbs can be mixed and combined to produce a “recipe” that’s just right for each of us. Since the Sun sign you were born under has such an amazing influence on your health and well-being, using the herbs that correspond with that sign alone can be a tremendous help in times of stress or illness. Here’s a short list of herbs that seem to be tailor-made due to their associations with both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of this sign.

  • Chicory,
  • Cinnamon,
  • Goldenseal,
  • Rosemary,
  • St. John’s Wort,
  • Sandalwood.

Leo, your planet is the Sun, the source of life and warmth that keeps us all alive and provides us with the energy we need to keep pursuing our life’s quest. It makes perfect sense, then, that the bright, cheerful sunflower would be the perfect representation of your equally bright and happy sign. Herbs like goldenseal and St. John’s Wort are tailor-made for you, too, since their ability to keep the body resistant to illness and depression are well known. Mix a bit of chicory with your morning coffee to help remove any obstacles that come up.

  • 6 drops of Patchouli oil
  • 6 drops of Sandalwood oil
  • 6 drops of Rose oil
  • 6 drops of Clove oil
  • 6 drops of Nutmeg oil
  • 6 drops of Olive oil

Wear as a perfume whenever you’ll be in the presence of the person you’re trying to attract. Be careful, this stuff is really potent. And don’t be surprised if you find others eyeing you as well. This is very effective for getting a man’s attention, substitute amber oil for the rose oil in order to attract a woman.

pisces-tattooAdd the following ingredients to 1/8 cup of jojoba oil. As you mix the oils, inhale the aroma and visualize the intended purpose for the blend.  For best results, use therapeutic grade organic oils instead of synthetics.

  • 3 drops Ylang-Ylang
  • 3 drops Sandalwood
  • 1 drop Jasmine

You can wear Pisces oil when  the moon is in Pisces, and also when the Sun is in Pisces. If you are a Pisces, wear the blend to increase your personal power.
