Controlling Oil

I’m going to be experimenting  with controlling oil in three ways. First – as a typical oil. Calamus (and other herbs) mixed with grape seed oil. That’s always my carrier oil of choice because you can get it anywhere. Sweet almond oil is my favored choice for any oleum or oil for anointing (and I have some experimental plans there).

Anyway – the second method is a spagyric tincture. Third will be a distillation of calamus and other herbs.  I’m also considering working some High John the same three ways. I want to see which one comes out better. I knew it seems a lot of work for such an experiment, but whatever I end up with, I’ll share it.

Oh – and I’m going to try a flying balm. I found a nice balm base that I like. It’s just a matter of growing my ingredients and using the fresh stuff. I’ve been told for years a good flying ointment can help catapult you into ascension and dream work and produce very lucid dream and extreme clarity during ascension. But all these years I’ve never been ambitious enough to try it and no one I know makes the stuff (except Brid and she isn’t sharing). If I’m going to do a flying balm (not really an ointment just because those are petroleum based) I’m going to do it right.

Such ambition… I just hope I can maintain it.
