Ritual Blends

  • 1 cup salt
  • 8 drops lotus oil
  • 8 drops jasmine oil

Lightly mix the ingredients together and place them in a jar for storage.

Helpful Tips:

Add the essential oils drop by drop, one ingredient at a time, until the scent seems right. Mix with a spoon (or shake) until all salt particles are moistened. Be prepared to spend some time doing this, perhaps a half hour or so. Here is where a plastic bag comes in handy!

If the Bath Salts are mixed for a ritual purpose, visualize the energies within the oils merging with each other and with the salt as you mix. Keep the salt’s goal in mind while you stir. Use or store until needed.

Take a glazed pan half full of grease or olive oil. Put in sweet mint leaves bruised. Place pan in hot water bath (or double boiler). Stir occasionally. After four or five hours pour into linen bag and squeeze grease through into pot again and fill with fresh leaves. Repeat until grease is strongly scented.

Do same with marjoram, thyme and pounded dried patchouli leaves, if you may have them (for they be best of all). When strongly scented, mix all the greases together and keep in a well-stoppered jar.

Anoint behind ears, throat, breasts and womb. In rites where Blessed be … may be said, anoint knees and feet, as also for rites connected with journeys or war.

Leo Vinci in Incense: Its Ritual Significance, Use and Preparation states that the Egyptian formula for Kyphi was given in the writings of Plutarch and that it contained 16 ingredients. He gives three different formulas for this incense in his book. My own personal formula contains more than 16 ingredients but smells much better than the ones given by Vinci.

Here’s the recipe. Blend together the following ingredients:

  • Red sandalwood – 1 part
  • Frankincense – 1/2 part
  • Myrrh – 1/4 part
  • Galangal – 1 part
  • Juniper berries – 1/4 part
  • Dragon’s blood – 1/4 part
  • Calamus root – 1 part
  • Bay laurel – 1 part
  • Orris root – 1/4 part
  • Henna powder – 1/4 part
  • Cinnamon – 1/4 part
  • Balm of Gilead – 1/4 part
  • Styrax bark – 1/4 part

Add oils of amber, honey, acacia, orris, storax, lotus, and musk to personal preference.

Note: Many recipes for Kyphi call for the use of raisins, honey, and wine. These “wet” ingredients enable you to make the incense into a paste that is then formed into balls and left to dry before burning.

Add the following ingredients to 1/8 cup of sesame oil. Visualize the Goddess as you mix the essential oils and inhale the fragrance. For best results, use therapeutic grade organic oils instead of synthetics.

Ingredients:

  • 3 drops Myrrh
  • 2 drops Cypress
  • 1 drop Sandalwood
  • 1 dried Mugwort leaf (optional)

This blend can be worn during the Waning Moon to honor Hekate, Goddess of the Fading Crescent. It can also be worn during rituals and magicks having to do with death, intuitive wisdom, dreams, divination, witchcraft, transition, child birth, and gateways or passages to other realms.

Note: Be cautious in the use of this blend as Mugwort is quite powerful and used in excess can be dangerous. A mint leaf can be used as a substitute for the Mugwort.

Drink this tea an hour before undertaking any form of divination. If you wish, you can continue sipping it throughout the divination process.

  • 3 tsp rose petals
  • 1 tsp jasmine flowers
  • 2 crushed bay leaves
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon

Note: This blend is for one person and is intended to have half a pint of boiling water poured over it. Allow the infusion to stand for 10 minutes before straining and do not stir, as this bruises the plants. Obviously, you can adjust the amount of water or standing time to your own taste. If you prefer your tea sweet, add a little honey, not sugar, to the strained infusion.

~ Tami Brown
