Abra-Melin Oil Recipe

Merry meet and welcome! 

I’ve always enjoyed collecting recipes through my studies, and have came across so many humbling spells and recipes that I finally feel wise enough to share them. Most have been tested and proven. One very important recipe that I’ve found works wonders, is Abra-Melin’s Oil. 

This recipe derives from biblical records in the formulas used in Jerusalem Temple. In my research, it was long ago recorded in a prominent grimoire allegedly written by Abraham Ben Simeon in 1458. He was taught this recipe by his teacher, named Abra-Melin, a Jewish magician from Egypt. 

It is used for high ceremonial rituals. And most importantly, it is used to conjure and pacify spirits. 

Abra-Melin’s Oil

  • Essential oil of Cinnamon bark or leaf
  • Essential oil of Galangal
  • Essential oil of Myrrh

My recipe of the oil

  • 15 drops of Cinnamon bark or leaf
  • 10 drops of Galangal
  • 5 drops  of  Myrrh

Like most magical recipes, it is important to get the recipe just right. I was taught that this is judged by the practitioner who is creating the mix. If what you’re creating feels and smells right to you, then the recipe is flowing with your energy. The measurements of my recipe is perfect for me, because it matches the flow of my magick, but it may be different to yours. So experiment, practice, take your time with this. You’ll want it to be perfect. 

Believe me… It’s worth it.

Ā«First Day Towards the Winter SolsticeĀ»

Candle Light Ritual
Begins with turning off all lights in the home. Lighting one candle, walk through the house, beginning at the front door. Chant:

~ Within the dark, the candle shall light the way.
For though winter is cold, it shall not reign.
Within the dark, our hope shall not die.
For soon the Sun will rise in the sky.
Within the dark, there is no despair.
For our shining souls will renew and repair.
So sing songs into the Winter night,
For soon the winds shall bring Spring light. ~
This is a beautiful ceremony, that blesses the dark. You will notice a significant difference within the home. 

Blessed be, brothers and sisters! Enjoy your winter activities!

The Full Moon Gathering (part 2)

Hello, beautiful souls!

It has been a few days since the full moon, and I have rested well enough to write about the experience. From the last blog, I had written of the reflections that came to me during that night. The appreciation I have for all the new souls I’ve been gifted upon meeting. Along with this moment, an inspiration had struck me. I had decided to hold a gathering for all these beings to come together and cast under the Great Moon. 

The gathering was a success. As far as I know of, more than twenty people gathered under the same full Thunder Moon, prayed, and casted their hopes and dreams… It was a moment beyond compare. I still feel their energy whispering across the skies. The Great Moon was shining brighter than ever that night, and She gifted me the power to feel all those around me. 

The night was warm and electric. The circle was vibrant with an aura that held no bounds. As I called down the moon, the wind picked up and caressed my skin, but alas I felt my spirit soar and merge with the Great Moon spirit. My body a vessel, I heard and felt the beats and rhythms from the others across the lands, seas, and world. A moment that I know others had felt as well. 

For that moment, we were all connected. True brothers and sisters, our body and souls were One. The Great Moon flew us across the night sky. Connected to the stars and the oceans. We sang and danced our words and steps. Lastly, we ended with a blessing and a protection. 

If one does not know how to call down the moon, it’s perfectly simple. And yet, it will require focus, unity with the energies around you, and most importantly… belief. 

Before calling down the moon, you must prepare yourself. Most witches would do a cleansing, such as a bath or a smudging. Once after the purification, then a circle can be created. A circle is a great protection, especially when your energies are open to the elements. I cleanse my circles using salt, rain water, burning sage, and its incense. Each to represent an element. 

After casting the circle, nor will be the time to focus on the Great Moon. Spread out your arms and call out to Her. Allow your energy to flow, and in return, absorb Her light. Give and take. When you are ready, chant the Great prayer. 

Sing, dance, stand your ground, and continue to chant until you feel the Great Moon enter your body. It is honestly difficult for me to describe how it feels once the transition happens, but I will say this, you will surely know when it does. 

Happy Blessings, brothers and sisters. I cannot express enough the happiness I felt knowing that you were all under the same Great Moon, and wishing blessings between us all. ~*~

New Moon Crystal Cleanse

Merry meet all! Welcome!

The past new moon was a time to do a cleansing for my amulet.

An amulet, is a jewel or stone that is meant to protect the wearer against evil, curses, and illness.
From time to a time, any sort of jewlery that is considered an amulet must be cleansed and refreshed.

The New Moon is the best night to do this for your amulets. The reason being this moon cycle as a time of rest. No magick is done during this period. Meditations, restings, and cleansings are appropriate.

Cleansing my amulet was simple. I simply placed my stone in a small glass dish (recommended) with a pinch of sea salt. I was fortunate enough that it was a rainy night. So extra cleansing was in store. I set outside the dish and left it to sit just a little after midnight. By then, I took it and placed it under my grape vines. It is also recommended to bury an amulet in the soil, but I had my reasons to not do it this time. Either way, the amulet still gets to soak in the Earth’s energy.
By morning, my amulet was cleansed and refreshed. I felt my energy restored and lighter.
Any other method can work as simply. You could cleanse with any element you wish. Such as smoke or flame. If I was to use the smoke method, I would most likely choose to burn bay or rosemary leaves then smudge my amulet through the smoke.
Of course since it beautifully rained through the new moon night, I couldn’t have been happier. Especially since water is the ultimate element to cleanse anything.
Anywho, hope this method helps anyone who is searching for ways to purify their tools and/or amulets, talismans, or even themselves!

Blessed be!
