Place one teaspoon of dried basil in a cup of boiling water. Leave for five minutes, and then strain.
Add the liquid to your bath water to bring a protective and cleansing influence. This herbal bath is particularly useful to rid oneself of the negative feelings left by contact with those who are controlling.
Fill a small bottle with equal parts of the following essential oils:
Add a few drops of Gardenia essential oil.
Consider all obstacles in your way being removed from your path as you blend this oil, and invoke Ganesh, the remover of obstacles to give his blessings to your blend so that it may be the best oil you use to open all roads to success.
Ganesh is perhaps one of the most beloved deities in the Hindu culture. He is perfect to petition when starting any type of new undertaking. Known to remove any type of obstacle, Ganesh offers insight, abundance, prosperity, new opportunities and overall success. Traditionally, Ganesh is depicted as an elephant headed man with a big belly and numerous arms. He loves sweet foods and is typically honored with hibiscus flowers.
You can use Ganesh Road Opener Oil in a variety of ways. It can be worn on the body, dabbed into the bath, anointed on important documents, dropped in the heel of your shoe, dabbed on charms and talismans, rubbed on the front door, burned in a diffuser or simply worn during prayer or meditation. You may also petition Ganesh by placing out sweets, fresh flowers and a bowl of water with a bit of this oil blend mixed in.
This oil blend should be a basic staple in your collection, and I strongly suggest you keep it on hand to be used whenever needed. Anytime you must clear your way through physical obstacles, this is the oil for the job. Add Road Opener to any magick or impossible task you wish to accomplish.
Add this oil to liquid body soap, and every time you wash your hands, you will be imbuing them with the power to open roads in all that they encounter. Writing letters, doing chores and being involved in all manner of communications – we use our hands one way or another.

Adapted from a recipe in the Enchanted Formulary
With doors and windows ajar, and people coming and going with the breeze, one’s attention might turn to natural protection magick in the summer. You can build your psychic armor with the protective energy of Goofer Dust by borrowing this traditional Hoodoo formula. Add it to your repertoire of home and hearth protection potions. Take time out of your busy day to make and use some of this fierce protective dust.
Goofer Dust is designed to protect your space from disruptive spirits (hants) and negative human energy. Here’s the recipe:
Mix equal parts sulfur (brimstone), sea salt, cayenne powder, and black pepper (powdered) and you’ll have homemade Goofer Dust. Make enough of the powder for the job at hand.
You’ll want to spread this in a protective ring around your property. If it is an apartment, loft or condo, make enough to spread out in front of your door. This dust protects the home, blowing forcefully toward bad energy spread by intruders with malicious intentions.
