Is this the same as the other oil blends for remembering past lives? Yes. Yes it is. However when I published the last one I didnt realise that the line-break command doesnt work here so the formatting made the instructions impossible to follow, and I couldnt edit it nor take it down, so here we are.
Important General Notes For Beginning Witches:
If youre new to the craft, please read this section. This is important information.
Oil blends are useful in a lot of things, ranging from aiding meditation to spells and potions. This is here to provide a foundation to your oil blend, after that its up to you to add other oils to suit your purpose. Especially because this guide has been made mainly to help otherkin and therian individuals, a one-size-fits-all approach doesnt work here.
Ive provided a list of relevant correspondences beside all my ingredients. If you dont have something, dont worry: just find something else with the same correspondences, itll work just as well. The ingredients for a spell or potion are chosen because of what they correspond with, so very rarely will you actually need exactly whats listed in the ingredients. That being said, Ive tried to ensure that the base ingredients for these oils are easy to obtain. There are lots of digital herb grimoires online, a few websites I recommend are angelfire.com, thewhitegoddess.co.uk, pookapages.com, and themagickalcat.com.
I have the herbs but I dont have the oil from them! Ive often found myself in this situation as well, I personally find that its hard to find oils for herbs often used in cooking, so heres a quick how-to on making plant fragrant oils (this method also works with tea, just so you know). This guide uses fragrant oils. Fragrant oils consist of a base oil with little to no scent and an essential oil, which is the part that makes the fragrance. Common bases include almond oil, canola oil, sunflower oil and olive oil. What I do to get fragrant oils is I fill a small(ish) jar about 2/3s of the way with my base oil of choice and then fill the rest with whatever herb, flower, or resin I want for my fragrance, close the lid, and let it steep from a couple days to a week. After that time has passed, I strain out the plant matter, pasteurise* the oil if needed, and then bottle it. Voil, fragrant oil ready for all your witchy needs!
If youre going to use your oil blend in something that you will eat or put on your skin, make sure the plant/s its made from arent poisonous. If youre using other oil blends for this one, they usually list ingredients on the label of the bottle. Not sure about wether something is poisonous or not, try googling is [plant] safe to eat?
Discount stores often sell fragrant oils very cheaply. For anyone in Australia, stacks discounts sells 16mL bottles of fragrant oils for $2.00AU, and 50 mL bottles for $4.00AU. Tumblr and Pinterest have a lot of information on where to get supplies cheaply, some good tags to look through are
budget witchcraft, witch on a budget, and
frugal witch. Another suggestion is to buy wholesale goods from places like eBay. For anyone whos unaware, Spells of Magic also has an online store that sells fragrant oils and blends fairly cheaply among other things. End of General Notes
This guide is geared towards recovering kin memories, however, if you arent otherkin or therian this should work just as well. That being said, I should warn you that not all memories will be pleasant, so keep that in mind when you put these to use. What you use in your blend will vary from person to person, but each of these requires a few essential ingredients, a foundation, if you will. However, what you need for your foundation will vary depending on what you intend to use your oil blend for, an oil for meditation will need a slightly different base than one to invite prophetic dreams, for example. The idea is you make up your base and then add oils that are relevant to the life (or aspects of) that you want to recall. The measurements specified are just recommendations, feel free to tweak them as you will.
Oil base for aiding meditation To use: add to an oil defuser before meditation. If you add non-toxic plants to this base it can also be applied directly to the skin before you meditate.
Oil base for inviting prophetic dreams To use: add to a dream sachet or an electric oil defuser before you how to bed or use in dream spells. If you add non-toxic plants to this base, then feel free to apply it to the skin as you would with aromatherapy oils. - Lilac (remembering past lives) [2 parts]
Oil base to aid astral projection To use: add to an oil defuser or use to anoint a protective charm or amulet before astral projection. Can be used to add to spell-jars to aid in astral projection, but keep those jars specifically for recovering memories of past lives. If no toxic plants are used in your oil blend, feel free to apply it to your skin as you would with aromatherapy oils.
General base for use in spells, potions, etc:
S uggestions for oils you might add to your blend
Not otherkin specific (by correspondence):
Suggestions for otherkin blends
This is a little more complicated than the last section, partly because its hard to find plants that correspond with certain animals and other creatures, and partly because theres too many different kin-types to just make a list of suggestions based in each kin-type. That being said, if you dont already have a selection of oils in mind, youll need a jumping-off point, so here we go.
The most obvious thing that comes to mind is plants that have a pre-existing correspondence with your kin or therian type, such as catnip for a cat-therian or dragons blood for dragonkin.
That last thing isnt always easy nor always an option, so the next step would be to find oils that
you associate with your kin-type. I mean this on the most basic level, like a ghostkin person may associate roses with their kin-type, possibly because people lay roses on peoples graves.
You want to tailor your blend to be as specific to the life youre trying to recall as possible. In this case even vague memories of that life could come in handy. Another suggestion along this vein would be to include oils that you associate not just with that kin-type but that life. Remember certain colours, try plants of that colour. Remember certain plants, try those plants. A particular climate, plants that can grow in those conditions. Plants that grow in the types of places you remember. Remember a country, try their national flower. Something that might be useful is that fragrance blends are often used to refresh potpourri, so you might be able to find blends that you associate with certain places, such as an ocean-themed blend for oceanic kin-types, etcetera.
