Complete Book of Incense, Oils & Brews - Scott Cunningham:
Recipes for making your own incense, oils, inks and such, with the purposes and uses. For centuries the composition of incenses, the blending of oils, and the mixing of herbs have been used by people to create positive changes in their lives.
With this book, the curtains of secrecy have been drawn back, providing you with practical, easy-to-understand information that will allow you to practice these methods of magical cookery.Everything from herbal oils, bath salts, and incense to inks, roots, and dried herbs is discussed in this informative encyclopaedia, wherein magic becomes an extension of spirituality or meditation.
The first rule of magic is "harm no one," and in those terms magic begins to make sense from a holistic/healing standpoint, linking herbology, aromatherapy, ritual, creative visualization, and prayer.
The book covers hundreds of different plants, barks, flowers, seeds, roots, stalks, etc.: their effects, their uses both medical and magical, and the best ways of preparing and blending them for tinctures, oils, incense, candles, bath oils, and lotions. As a document that exists squarely within the unexplored middle ground between folklore and tested science, this book should be equally at home in a vegetarian kitchen, a holistic healer's office, a witch's lair, or the home of someone who just wants things to smell nice.
Cunningham argues convincingly that by combining spirituality and herbology with magic ritual, there is no limit to what the power of plants and the human mind can accomplish.165pgs
