Room Sprays

Natural Magick Room Sprays were invented at the request of a customer. She had just moved into a college dorm, and her room really needed to be smudged out, but the dorm had very strict rules against the burning of anything on the premises. So I just mixed the essential oil base of the Purification oil into a spray bottle with a base of water and grain alcohol. It became immediately apparent that some of the Natural Magick line oils were very appropriate as room sprays.

These sprays are ritually crafted and very strong. There is enough alcohol in the base to keep the atomizer from getting clogged, but not enough to actually dissolve all of the essential oils. Shake them well to disperse the oils evenly before spraying. Be very careful not to get this mist into your eyes, or to inhale it. The essential oils are very strong, and the alcohol is too. The scents from most of these will last just a short time. They are used mostly for short-term effects, unless you use them often over a period of time.

Van Van Room Spray

Van Van is a favorite Louisiana standard with many uses, including banishing, purification, ritual preparation, and meditation. It is deployed in so many ways that a room spray might suit your needs well.

Most of the traditional ingredients in Van Van have pest-repelling properties, which is a constant need in the Deep South! Traditional Van Van potions are based on the citrus-smelling grasses like Citronella, Palmarosa, and Vetiver. Some of these are included in my Van Van oil.

For my formulations I took an intuitive leap, based on New Orleans pronunciations. What we call Vervain in Europe and Texas (Ver-VANE), is pronounced (vurh-VaHN) in French and Cajun. Vervain is a European witchcraft mainstay herb, used by Druid and western Witches alike for purification and magickal power and healing. Verbena essential oil (Aloysia triphylla or Lippia citriodora) known by it's common name as Lemon Verbena) would have been available to early French perfumers based in New Orleans, but since it is quite expensive, it would be unaffordable for most New Orleans styled HooDoo practitioners and potioneers. Because of its powerful purification properties, I conjecture that Vervain (European Verbena officinalis or American native Verbena hallei), which has no scent or essential oil was used in infused oils to obtain the powers of the Verbena, and that the lemony scent and purifying qualities were added in with Lemongrass, Citronella, and Palmarosa grass essential oils, as necessary, affordable and available, to approximate the elusive scent of Lemon Verbena essential oil.

My version of Van Van oil pays tribute to this history, and contains real Lemon Verbena essential oil. It contains sea salt blessed on the Sunday after the New Moon.

These magick oils are also called ritual oils, anointing oils or condition oils. They can be used to anoint a person, candle, mojo bag, lucky coins, jewelry, amulets, statues, prayer or spell scrolls, or anything that has a connection with the purpose of the oil or the "condition" it is made to address. Use them according to your inspiration, imagination, the instructions in a book, your Spirit Guide, teacher or Angel's recommendations, or how your Grandma taught you.
