The scent of fresh lilac flowers was once thought to drive away ghosts. It is also very effective at relieving stress, and enhancing a child’s educational aptitude. Like many flowers, lilacs can be utilized in love expansion rituals. The sweet fragrance of these seasonal blooms brims with loving energies.
Lilac essential oil is currently only available in a synthetic version. It is, however, possible to make your own. It can be made by infusing Lilac blossoms in oil.
For this, it is best to choose an oil that has minimal fragrance of its own, as you don’t want it to overpower the lilac scent.
- Fill an airtight jar with dry Lilac flower petals, and then cover with the oil.
- Let the petals steep in the oil for three days, shaking the jar occasionally.
- Keep the jar in the sun in the daytime and in a warm cupboard at night.
- Strain out and discard the petals, using a cheesecloth or a non-metal sieve.
- Retain the oil.
- Refill the jar with more fresh, clean, and dry flower petals and cover them with the reserved oil.
- Allow the petals to steep as before.
- Repeat the straining and refilling until the oil has the desired intensity of fragrance.
Store in a cool dark place and use promptly. Vitamin E can be added as a preservative. Pierce one capsule of Vitamin E and add the contents to every cup of infused oil. Alternatively, 1/4 teaspoon of simple tincture of benzoin may be added per cup of infused oil.
Lilac oil can be used to treat rashes and sunburn, minor injuries and scrapes. It is a great skin tightening agent and toner. And the scent is great for easing anxiety.
Lilac oil reputedly repels vampires and is certainly more fragrant than garlic. If you make your own, the lingering aroma should keep the vampire out of the house as well.
