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.

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.
Taurus is the sign that’s fondest of the pleasures that life inside these bodies can provide. Whether it’s a blazing sunset, a symphony by Mozart, or a delicious meal, you folks are experts at enjoying the physical delights of the senses. It’s no surprise that the herbs you’ll enjoy most are the sweet ones, since your planet, Venus, is the purveyor of sweetness. Use each of them to satisfy that sweet tooth. These are especially good for love and/or luxury spells.
