Annointing oils and incense are used widely in magickal rituals and spells. Fragrance is an extremely useful tool. It "sets the mood" for your ritual, and goes a long way in bringing about your desired magickal intention. The following is a list of oils commonly used in magick, along with their commonly accepted magickal attributes. As you experiment with fragrance by using oils and incense, you will most likely find many more magickal uses for the following oils. This list is provided to simply get you started.
 

Amber

- love, comfort, happiness, and healing. (Amber oil is created from lesser quality amber, which is fossilizedpine resin millions of years old...true amber oil is extremely rare...most amber oil is formulated from ambergris)
 

Ambergris

- psychic powers, dreams, aphrodisiac. (This is a product of sperm whales, and was used widely for magick in the past...it is not very common presently, due to increased ecological considerations -- whales are an endangered species, and fortunately society no longer approves of the killing of animals for products such as oil) Most of the ambergris oil on the market today is artificial. For a close substitute, mix cypress oil with a few drops of Patchouli oil...
