Oil of Abramelin

A ceremonial magical oil blended from aromatic plant materials. The recipe is adapted from the Jewish Holy Oil of the Tanakh, which is described in the Book of Exodus attributed to Moses. There are several very similar recipes of the oil, but the original was made up of Myrrh, Cinnamon, Cassia, Calamus, and Olive oil. Many traditions of magic also assign symbolic meanings to these ingredients. In the Jewish tradition the Olive is a symbol of domestic felicity and stability, Myrrh is believe to be sacred to the Lord, Calamus is known for its sweetness and stands for male sexuality and love, while while Cinnamon is favored for its warming ability. In hoodoo folk magic, these symbolisms are slightly changed: Myrrh and Olive remain the same, but Cinnamon is for money and luck, and Calamus is used to sweetly control others.
