Plant Wisdom Wednesday—Herbal Anointing Oils
Our ancestors used oils in ceremony and ritual hundreds and even thousands of years ago. In some folk magic traditions, oils can be used for both anointing people and objects, blessing them with the energies and essences infused into the oil. As a spellwork tool, used to amplify magic and intention, an herbal anointing oil could dress a candle, bless an amulet, and if made with safe ingredients, be rubbed onto the body. Join Bekah Sutter for this online chapter of Witch Crafting Wednesday: Herbal Anointing Oils as we explore a brief history of story and use, what makes up herbal anointing oils, and how you can make them with ingredients you may already have at home or easily foraged! We will go over many ingredients including different carrier oils, herbs, essential oils, flower essences, crystals and more; as well as other elements to keep in mind when crafting a magical herbal oil such as color, numerology, and lunar/solar infusions to name a few!
