For many magical practitioners, magical oils are a staple component of ritual and magical practice. Using essential oils in your magical practices is a tried and tested way of working with the energies of Mother Earth to bring about desired change in your life.
Since before recorded history, shamans, priests and healers used scented oils in ritual, magic and medicine. Oils were used in incense, ointments, tinctures, charms and other magical creations for almost every purpose under the Sun. These sacred oils were made by heating fragrant plant matter - leaves, flowers, barks, etc - in carrier oils made from olives, sesame seeds and other sources.
Some of the earliest fragrant oils made in this way were frankincense, myrrh, and cinnamon - classic scents still used today in many modern forms of the Craft.
Over the centuries, steam distillation and other technologies were discovered, allowing for oils to be extracted from a wider variety of plants, including flowers and citrus plants. Today, with the explosion of interest in the healing art of aromatherapy, an unprecedented variety of essential oils are available to anyone who wishes to explore them. This is great news for practitioners and other Witches who like to incorporate essential oils into their magical practice!
In this class you will learn how to begin working with essential oils, absolutes, carrier oils and dried botanicals to create potent magical blends for a variety of uses and occasions - you are limited only by your imagination.
We will discuss how essential oils and other fragrant liquids are created along with how to safely blend and combine these amazing gifts from Mother Earth. This class is suitable for those just beginning their journey, anyone with some aromatherapy or magical experience or, of course, the seasoned practitioner.
This class is extremely ‘hands on’ and throughout the evening you will have the opportunity to create a variety of magical aromatherapy products including: Magical Pulse Point Oil, Magical Room Spray, Magical Anointing Oil and Magical Simmer Salts. The cost of the workshop also includes class notes for you to take away as a reference guide to creating your own magical oils at a later date.
All spaces must be pre-booked and are extremely limited due to current group and education guidelines.
