Also called Oil of Abramelin, this is a traditional ceremonial magic oil blended from the essential oils of prescribed plants.
The oil was described in a medieval grimoire called The Book of Abramelin,
written by a German of Jewish descent called “Abraham of Worms.”
The recipe is considered to have been adapted from the anointing oil described in the Book of Exodus, attributed to Moses.
This is a celestial oil, created according to the Chaldean system of planetary days and hours, and the lunar calendar.
This oil was made at the start of a full moon, on the Day of the Sun, in the Hour of the Sun.
Due to various translations of the book in different time periods from a variety of languages, several different recipes have been called “Abramelin Oil.”
This oil is made from a recipe that calls for a distillation of macerated herbs. In this version, essential oils take the place of botanicals in the same proportions, with Cinnamomum cassia rather than Cinnamomum verum, and calamus in the place of galangal.
This oil is considerably less caustic than the Crowley variant of Abramelin Oil.
