Scent has the power to change the world. Well, in a way it does. When you smell something, the scent bypasses the conscious mind and drifts effortlessly into your subconscious mind. Because of this, scent can have remarkable power in your magic spells.
Scented oil can assist you in focusing your mind on your spell. It can even bring up the specific emotions you are looking for in order to be successful with your spell, whether that is the feeling of joy and elation of financial freedom for a money spell, feelings of warmth and tenderness for a love or friendship spell or the sense of stability and security for a protection spell. Scent allows us to invoke these emotions, making our magic more powerful and real.
Essential oils are the living essence that contains the energetic qualities of a plant. And since the act of magic boils down to the art and science of manipulating energies to obtain a desired effect, you can utilize the energetic qualities in the oils to assist you in your magical work. Essential oils are your friend and ally for any spell or ritual.
There are many ways in which people have used scented oils in magic. Below is a list of more common methods:
- Anoint an unscented candle before lighting it
- Anoint various points on the body such as the forehead, chest, or even the different chakra points
- Sprinkle a couple drops into a mojo bag
- Rub a little on your altar tools, including crystals
- Heat some in an oil burner to fill your sacred space with the aroma
- Put some on your doorframes as part of a protection spell
Go with your instincts on how best to use the oils. Once your smell it, let your imagination take over and tell you how to make use of its best qualities. You may want to pick up a book on candle magic because many spells that use candles also suggest oils.
