remember, you can channel your energy into anything. even if you are not doing something that necessarily feels “witchy,” you are incorporating your own unique energies into so many things! while taking notes, cleaning your room, humming a song… it all comes from you. this is your spirit, and nobody else’s.
On the left we have my synthetic oils, and the right we have hand made oils. Some of the hand made oils were made by me, and others by reputable botanicas who use natural ingredients. All websites/botanicas I bought from will be tagged below.
How to make your own oils: Making your own oils is a way to customize them to your exact intentions. I make a lot of my own oils (some not pictured here) and it’s one of my favorite things to do in my practice. Here’s how you can make your own.
What you’ll need is:
1) Carrier oil- This is specific to you and what you like to use but generally using an oil with a milder scent works better if you’re gonna add herbs and essential oil. I personally use grape seed oil and coconut oil because I like the consistency and milder scent. Coconut oil is also a great base for love and protection oil because of its correspondences.
2) Herbs/Curios- This is also specific to your intent. I personally like a lot of herbs in my oils and leave them in after they’ve charged up. You can add other things as well like roots, crystals, or glitter!
3) Vitamin E Capsules- This is totally optional but I do recommend it. You can buy these at any pharmacy or grocery store for pretty cheap. They are gel vitamin E capsules and they help your oil last a lot longer. They basically act as preservative for the herbs and oil itself.
4) Your intention- Once you have a carrier oil and everything you want to put in your oil, as well as bottle or container for your oil, you’re going to put your intention into it. Tell it what you want it to do, say your words of power/prayers, and you’re done! Put the oil in a dark place to charge for as little as 3 days and as long as you feel is necessary.
Quick Tip: For all of you who aren’t into DIY-ing, (There’s no shame in that, your practice and magic is still valid!) I like to add herbs to my synthetic oils to give them more energy and to customize them to my needs. This is pretty simple and cost effective and as easy as just adding some dried rose petals to a love oil.
“He was easy to love,” she said. “He was easy to talk to and be around and smile with. He was easy to do all of those things with because we fit each other. I think if we met 10 years later under different circumstances I would’ve married him.” She laughed gently, her eyes grown soft. “And I loved him. I know he doesn’t think so but God, I loved him. I loved his hair and his eyes and his smile and how easy he was to love, who wouldn’t love that?”
Then her smile turned over. “But love isn’t supposed to be that easy. When it’s so easy like that, it’s not right. It’s not right if he’s easy to talk to but not easy to sit in total silence with and not be awkward. It’s wrong, it’s wrong, it’s wrong, and it might feel easy at first but it won’t six months later.”
But her eyes were still soft. “And yet you love him still. You’ll move on and find the one who’s not always easy, but you don’t stop loving him. You can’t.” She smiled again, but this time it’s rain instead of the sun. “Because people always love what’s easy. It tends to hurt them less.”
