Cinnamon

Fill one jar with equal parts of the following herbs and spices:

  • Cinnamon [swift results]
  • Nutmeg [psychic power]
  • Allspice [success]
  • Ginger [energy]
  • Basil [strength]
  • Fennel seeds [creativity]
  • Garlic [spiritual purification]
  • Marjoram [love and happiness]
  • Sage [clear out negativity]
  • Cloves [command and compel]
  • Mustard seed [faith]

Before you do any magical or psychic work, inhale the scent deeply and then shake the jar gently.

You can use the aromatic properties of spices to enhance your powers mentally.

Fill a jar with equal parts of the following spices. This will make an all purpose mental power scent jar.

  • Cinnamon: For dream magick.
  • Nutmeg: For good luck.
  • Allspice: For healing.
  • Ginger: For lunar magick.
  • Basil: For protection.
  • Fennel seeds: For spiritual healing.
  • Garlic powder: For spiritual purification.
  • Marjoram: For protection.

Before scrying, readings, or other psychic work,  shake the jar gently and then inhale the scent to enhance your mental powers.

You can also make individual spice jars for specific spells and magickal workings. Or the spices can be combined for special purposes. For example, combine Cinnamon, Fennel, and Ginger for New or Full Moon spells for healing dreams.

The jar is best stored in a private place among your other magickal tools. Your jar should not be revealed to others.

It will last about one year, at which time, you should dispose of the spices by burying them before creating a new mental enhancement jar. Bury the spices on your own property if possible, either that or some beautiful wild place.

Wash the jar with lots of soap and water, and allow it to sit in the sunshine for several days. Now it’s ready to be refilled.

This incense blend is a non-combustible powdered incense blend that you will need to burn on a charcoal block. Charcoal blocks can be purchased at most metaphysical stores and also online. You will need a mortar and pestle to grind your ingredients and tin or jar to keep the incense dry and fresh. The recipe is as follows:

  • 2 parts frankincense
  • 2 parts sandalwood (powdered)
  • 1 part cinnamon (powdered)
  • 1⁄4 part sweet orange Essential Oil
  • 1 part juniper berries (dried or fresh)
  • 1⁄2 part lemongrass (dried)
  • 1⁄2 part yarrow (dried)

In a mortar and pestle, powder your frankincense as finely as possible. Combine the frankincense with the sandalwood and cinnamon until blended. Set aside. In the mortar and pestle, crush the juniper berries. They will be fairly easy to crush if they are dried. If they are fresh, freeze them for 30 min or more and then crush them–they will crush much easier. Crush your lemongrass and yarrow separately. Combine all ingredients, including sweet orange essential oil, in the mortar and pestle and blend thoroughly. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup salt
  • 6 drops patchouli oil
  • 2 drops cinnamon oil
  • 3 drops acacia oil
  • 8 drops sandalwood 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.

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.

From: D J Conway’s Magick of the Gods and Goddesses

The optimum time to make this oil is 5 days following the new moon. But it can be made any time during the new or crescent moon phase.

Supplies:

  • A small item made of gold
  • Olive oil
  • Small clean container (preferably glass) with a tight fitting lid
  • Powdered cinnamon or cinnamon essential oil

Instructions:

  • Place the item made of gold into the container
  • Add a pinch of cinnamon or a drop of cinnamon essential oil
  • Pour enough olive into the container to cover the item and fill the container to the halfway mark.

Cradle the container in your hands and think about how grateful and happy you are for the prosperity that you already have, and for the prosperity that is coming to you.

Then gently breathe this gratitude and happiness into the container, continue to breathe it into the container until it has been filled the rest of the way to the top with loving gratitude.

Put the lid on the container, and tighten it.

Tap the lid with your middle finger once and say:
“Thank you to the Father”
Tap the lid with your middle finger a second time and say:
“Thank you to the Mother”
Tap the lid with your middle finger for a third time and say:
“Thank you to the Living Spirit in all things”

This prosperity oil will gradually increase in potency as the moon waxes toward full, and can be used at any time.

On the full moon:

  • Remove the gold item – and gently and lovingly clean it.
  • Drop a pinch of powdered ginger into the container.

Cradle the container in your hands and think about how grateful and happy you are for the prosperity that you already have, and for the prosperity that is coming to you.

Put the lid on the container, and tighten it.

Tap the lid with your middle finger once and say
“Thank you to the Father”
Tap the lid with your middle finger a second time and say
“Thank you to the Mother”
Tap the lid with your middle finger for a third time and say
“Thank you to the Living Spirit in all things”

Hints and tips:

If it seems that there is no prosperity in your life to be grateful for, think of something that makes you happy, or someone you love.

A Sacajawea gold dollar is a great item to use – and they can be purchased for $1 at your local bank.
