Anointing oils and their use in magic dates back centuries as they play an important role when working with an intention/magical workings.
Many people use these oils in sacred rituals, ceremonies, initiations and to anoint almost any object to keep the magical juices flowing. Most anointing oils will contain plant material, plant spirits are powerful!
In magic, we are calling upon the spirits of these sacred plants to support us in our magical workings. Use them wisely, with respect and be sure to thank them for their aid!
You can anoint just about anything! Your Grimoire, Book of Shadows, car, body, candles, boline, crystals, any ritual tool and even jewelry or talismans.
If you are using essential oils in your anointing oil, make sure you are properly diluting them and do not use directly on the skin unless you know for a fact that, the essential oil is safe to use directly on the skin. Always test a bit on your wrist first as pure essential oils can cause a reaction on sensitive skin.
