Practical Magic: Blessing Oils
Time & Location
About The Event
Oils have been used in rituals for millennia, from ancient Egypt to the Greco-Roman world, and the distillation of herbs into essential oils has long been considered a technique with medicinal, healing and spiritual benefits. In this workshop, attendees will learn the magical uses of different base oils and how to infuse them with dry and fresh herbs, making magical solar and lunar anointing oils. The blending of essential oils to be used in blessings, such as candles and crystals will also be covered, and finally, attendees will make an oil-based room diffuser to bring good dreams and visions to their resting hours.
Participants will need: Lemon Balm, Lavender flowers, mint, a base oil (pref. Grapeseed oil/Almond oil etc)
