Carrier or base oils have magickal properties too. They’re the foundation of the oil blends you make for anointing and to use in spells, rites and rituals. They soften some of the harsher oils that may irritate the skin and can subtly add an extra layer of power. Please don’t fret about having all of them, one or two would suffice as long as one of those is Olive Oil. Remember, as always, to consecrate your ingredient/s on your altar to awaken their sacredness before using.

Oil Links – the links on this page are mostly to Amazon products that we use ourself. For some of the more popular oils we make we buy oils in 16 oz or in one gallon bottles. If you find a carrier oil that you really like, or a brand that you prefer, we would love to know about it, so feel free to either write into us or leave a comment on this page.

Bottles  – We have so many styles of bottles that you can purchase to store your oils. From large to small, and even smaller ones you can keep around your neck for when you want to use your oil on the go, perhaps a little love potion to add to somebody’s drink!
