I wanted to know if Moon oil is meant for the full moon can I still try to do it tomorrow night because today I am not prepared? Is it still going to be okay?
This is going to depend most on how you feel about- but I personally say yes, it will be fine!
The day of the Full Moon is when the moon is 100% illuminated. The next day it is labeled as a Waning Gibbous- but it is still 98-99% illuminated (depending on the exact time of the full moon the day before). The light has only decreased by a tiny fraction! You can check the exact percent of the moon’s current illumination on the Moongiant Calendar
Looking up at the sky with your naked eye the day after a full moon will look exactly the same as the full moon. To me, I consider that extremely close to being full and still possible to draw energy from.
But keep in mind that if you personally feel that once the full moon begins waning, the energy can longer be accessed- that will carry over into your spellwork. Remember, your intent is the most powerful ingredient in any magic you do!
In this case- you can still make your moon oil! Instead of using the properties of the full moon, consider drawing on the different energies of the Waning Moon- the benefits of the moon as it moves towards a New Moon
Good luck with your moon oil and blessed be!
My thoughts are exactly what @TheTravelWitch said!
You can still prepare the Full Moon Oil the day after. In the end, it’s up to you how critical you want to be about the Moon being 100% full.
I feel like sometimes I just have to go back to the basics!
It’s like I need to plan better! I wonder if I ever going to be able to apply everything I know! Just to let you know I have a learning curve! I have a hard time learning but with dedication and practice I suppose I”ll get to be a good Witch someday! Thanks for always helping me even when I have to go back to first base! I think I’ll go back !
Going to watch more videos and do some training!!
@Jeannie1 I can confidently say you are already a GREAT witch! There are no worries at all about skipping a moon phase- after all, there will be another full moon in just a few weeks!
Life is busy and full of excitement- everyone can only do as much as they can. Go easy on yourself if you have to skip a phase and wait until the next one comes. Everybody misses things at times- I know I sure do!
The most important thing is that you take care of yourself- this means taking breaks and forgiving yourself sometimes Sometimes after waiting a bit, you can come back and prepare for the next moon phase or event with more energy than you would have had before!
You’re doing awesome Jeannie!
Your right I am hard on myself thanks I’m glad I keep it real that way in every day life I won’t be that way! Thanks for being a great friend and person. I just wanted to let you know all the craft is helping me in every day life cause know I remember to put my creativity to play during the day! I can’t wait for results!

May your magick continue to bring joy and love to you and all those around you
I just made the oil, I am going to wait for the next Full Moon to charge it which I believe is December 29th according to Google lol. Here is my bottle of oil. Kind of large but it is a repurposed Holy Anointing oil bottle from the Catholic Church I used to go to. I have several of them that have been washed and cleansed. Former Catholic but that is another story for another time.
I did an awesome positive energy meditation this morning and had tea ritual earlier but I am not tired. Must have been that 2 hour nap after lunch at 2 pm that did it.
It looks beautiful, @CrazyT- nicely done!
@TheTravelWitch Thanks. I love blending oils. I even added a few drops of rose, jasmine, and cinnamon to the mix. It smells wonderful. I can’t wait to use it.
I can smell it from here! It looks great Excellent job @CrazyT!!
Thanks @Francisco Hubby loved it so asked me to make him some as well.
