Day 11/44- Witchy Tools: Oils

Oil is a symbol of the element of fire and their magic works through vibrations and scent

Here are some of my favorites:

First off the Base Oil, which is used to mix and blend the oils

I like to use Grapeseed oil because
Grape seed oil is a preferred cosmetic ingredient for control of skin moisturization. A light, thin oil, grape seed oil leaves a glossy film over the skin when used as a carrier oil foressential oils in aromatherapy. It contains more linoleic acid than many other carrier oils. Grape seed oil is also used as a lubricant for shaving.

I also like to use Sweet Almond Oil because it's mild and it's used as well in Prosperity rituals such as annointing candles and money, etc.., also the symbol of wakefulness to the ancient Egyptians.

I also like Jojoba oil, but it can be fairly expensive and its not really an oil but they call it a wax ester, its an all day moisturizer.
