mojo's recipe for Anointing Oil of Abramelin

Mojo's Anointing Oil of Abramelin

The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage (S.L. MacGregor Mathers translation):

You shall prepare the sacred oil in this manner: Take of myrrh in tears, one part; of

fine cinnamon, two parts; of galangal half a part; and the half of the total weight of

these drugs of the best oil olive. The which aromatics you shall mix together

according unto the art of the apothecary, and shall make thereof a balsam, the which

you shall keep in a glass vial which you shall put within the cupboard (formed by the

interior) of the altar.

So…first you begin the process on the New Moon, first obtaining a 'birthing bottle' in which to 'birth' your anointing oil…

Then you begin with Virgin Olive Oil, and place in the Birthing Bottle on the night of the New Moon, and let it sit out under the full influence of the New Moon.

Olive being under the influence of the Planet the SUN and the Element FIRE...

The next opportunity, you add the One Part Myrrh in tears

Myrrh being under the influence of the Planet MARS and the Element FIRE.

Then the Two Parts of Cinnamon, Cinnamon being under the influence of the Planet

The SUN and the Element FIRE.

Next we add the Galangal 1/2 part. Galangal being under the influence of the Planet MARS and FIRE.

Now you allow the ingredients to gestate within the belly of the Birthing Bottle for the full cycle of the Moon, it is then ready to use ritualistically…

'The art of the Apothecary', is the Birthing Bottle, which in essence you create the Anointing Oil…now much like the concept of sour dough bread…The novel thing about sourdough baking is that it requires that you keep something alive. The Anointing Oil of Abramelin, IN the Birthing Bottle is to be viewed as 'something alive'…just like the yeast and bacteria in sour dough bread which form a stable symbiotic relationship, so too shall the combination of the Myrrh, Cinnamon, and Galangal form a living entity, and can live for centuries, a thriving colony of microorganisms. You merely recharge it as needed with Virgin Olive Oil.
