Magic Oils

Magic oils are the foundation of candle magic, mojo working, and personal ritual anointing.  Use them to "fix" candles, apply to the affected area of the body, to magic tools, etc. If you wanted to put them in a bath, you would pour in about 1/4 of the bottle.  Natural Magick oils are all made according to the best day of the week and phase of the moon.  No cheating or fudging! If I blow it and forget to make Money oil on the Thursday before the Full Moon, well we are just going to be out of stock til the next favorable lunar and planetary production day.  All are true essential oils blended into a base blend of Fractionated Coconut or Jojoba, Almond and Vitamin E oil for a long-lasting product, with the exception of Find Love for Men, which has a little synthetic Egyptian Musk.  There is and herb or stone in each bottle that gives it a magickal look, and is appropriate to the intention.  I call it the focus herb, because if you like to focus your energy and intention into your oil, it gives something to focus on.  They are diluted only enough to be safe for most people to use directly on the skin with no adverse reactions, usually about a 12% solution.  Oh, and all of them smell good too, except Banishing and Uncrossing, which would not work if they were not a bit off-putting!

Samhain oil

Samhain is the pagan Cross Quarter Day Sabbat otherwise known as Halloween, All Saints Day, Dia de Los Muertos, celebrated on October 31st to November 11th, depending on the tradition. This oil is to honor the dearly departed as well as to protect the incarnate living from any bogies or phookas may have made it across while the Veil Between the Worlds is thin. Samhain oil by Natural Magick Shop is sweet, sultry, and mysterious.

Samhain oil is attractive to spirits; discarnate and noncarnate forms of beings, but its nature is to feed and propitiate these entities, thus preserving a bond and a boundary between the worlds. Samhain oil is powerfully activating to the Third eye, so it can be used to make us more sensitive to messages and communications from the Beyond. Most people find its smell to be comforting and fascinating, as Death is Itself. For this reason, Samhain oil is helpful to resolve and honor the grief process, no matter what time of year it may come to visit.

If popular culture understands anything about Pagans, the Halloween observance may be the reason! The iconic images of the Crone Witch, the Black Cat, the Scull, the Spider, and the grimacing Jack O’Lantern are the perfect mix of attraction/repulsion for the morbid curiosity of the human condition! Samhain is a celebration of Death, and preparation for the Winter that is coming.

Like its opposite holiday on the Wheel of the Year, Samhain is a time when the Veil Between the Worlds is thin. The realms of the Dead, the lands of the Faeries, and the Human world are said to be close. Additionally, this is a time of movement…all the dead who passed earlier in the year now have their last feast with their surviving family and loved ones before passing into the realm of the Dead. So places are set for the dearly departed, portions of the meal are served to their plates, and toasts are made to say goodbye. The Pleiades now come to be visible in the night sky, and this is where the Seelie Courts migrate, while the Unseelies (bad Faeries) are now free to haunt the darkening landscape. This is also the season of the Apple harvest, but we leave one Apple on the tree for the Apple Tree Man. Any apples left on the trees in the orchard after Samhain night were property of the Spirits, Faeries, and/or Dead, and it was tabu to harvest, much less eat these apples

Children act out this seasonal change with their scary costumes, and we offer them candy, money, and food, propitiation against the pranks of the Goblins and other malevolent spirits, and the Dead who can find no rest. Our customary Jack O’Lantern is carved, and his protective powers are activated with the lit candle. A fit champion against these mischief makers.

This was a time of revenge, and with all the Spirits, Goblins, and costumed revelers going about, it was expected that calamities of any sort might take place. So any laborer might have cover, to take his revenge against a feudal lord who had cheated the sharecropper out of his share of the harvest. This harsher aspect of the holiday still persists as Devil’s Night or Hell Night where pranks advanced to arson and other forms of property crimes in urban cities, particularly Detroit.

One other widespread Samhain observance is divination and prediction of the future. When the Veil is thin, we are more likely to be receptive to messages from the spirit worlds, dead relatives, or other informants. So here we are back at the cottage of the Crone Witch, where she stirs her cauldron of visionary herbs, to have our fortune told. Bring out the Tarot cards, the inadvisable Ouija board, crystal ball, or swallow the seeds of the apple are in order to have a dream of our future spouse. Samhain oil would be an appropriate enhancement for these or any Samhain observances.

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.
