Mottled Magic: My Grimoire of Spells, Oils, Sigils, and More

My personal spells, recipes, sigils, and more I decided I wanted to share. I have quite a few and will post one at a time a few times every other day or so to prevent spam. Hopefully someone will find them useful.


Oleums, Oils, and Other Mixtures Preface

Oleum is just Latin for “oil” but I use it as a generic term for any liquid mixture used for consecration and anointing purposes regardless of the carrier/base, such as water or alcohol. It is not the same as corrosive sulfuric acid, which shares the term.

When I create these mixtures I always do three things:

  1. Make them on the appropriate day and/or hour
  2. Evoke/Invoke the appropriate powers
  3. Wait at least a week before using

The last one to me is important, perhaps more so than the first two. That doesn’t mean you can’t use them immediately, but they will not have sufficiently absorbed the ingredients inside to be very usable to you, even if done in the proper day and hour, even if asking the demons, angels, planets, gods, etc to bless your mixture. Give it time to diffuse. A week is the minimum amount of time, properly you should wait a month before first use, but a week is a good length of time, especially if you get around to using it on the proper day and hour again.

Portions used are usually for approx. 6 fluid ounces, but I have a variety of bottle shapes, so portions may not be exact if yo use different containers. Adjust as needed. My bottles, also, are not filled to the brim. I leave the necks empty so that I can shake them before use. They are corked snugly, and I usually shake the bottle and use the cork to dab the object needed, which means these last a long time due to minimal drops used.

Always take proper discernment to make sure what you burn, put on your body, or otherwise will be in close contact is safe to do so.
