Are you looking for a book that's going to tell you about how to mix traditional magical oils? Learn about the correspondences between essential oils and the intangible and Divine?
This isn't the book for you.
Now, granted, the author has cited her sources, which is why she gets two stars instead of one. But the oil recipes....no. Just no. They appear to have been pulled from a mixed bag of sources, including Cunningham, Slater, Marlborough, and others, with a result that is at times just BAFFLING. It's a slap-dash mix of traditions and recipes without any sense of consistency. Lavender as a jinx-breaker? Bayberry for cursing? Bay laurel for Black Devil oil? *MAKING* graveyard dust with herbs? None of this is traditional, none of this is accepted in modern Pagan or hoodoo correspondences, and the fact that people may buy this book and think the information in it is accurate actually PAINS me.
The author is also convinced that synthetic oils are A-OK for magical purposes. Which, again, no. Both Pagan and hoodoo correspondences are about plants - bayberry (for example) is almost always job or money related. Not bayberry scent, not synthetic bayberry - BAYBERRY. The plant. From which you can obtain an essential oil (though it's ungodly expensive) and mix with other essential oils - each with it's own correspondence - to create magical oils. Synthetic oils might smell the same, but they're not natural. They're not taken from the plant. Which means that magically speaking, they're pretty much useless. And feel free to wave me away as one nutcase purist, but go poke around in some of the older, respected oil books and you'll see the same thing - synthetics have no place in magick.

Get out "Incense, Oils and Brews" along with "Enchanted Formulary" and follow the recipes - the amount of drops were changed to +1 or -1 to guess to get away with out and out reprints of those books. I wondered why the author was giving away her recipes from her business, well she didn't per se. These recipes have been out in the world for 20 years, but c'mon, reprinting Incense, Oils and Brews?

This book has helped me in my work. I've crafted several oils that have been powerful and effective. It has helped me grow in my practice. I have read some negative commentary that I do not think is fair. While I respect the use of essential oils for the purist with a bottomless budget, I do agree with the author's assertion that one's intention is what makes magick effective. Why else would practitioners assert that one can use one's finger verses an athame? I cannot say the use of fragrance oils verses essential oils has not entered my mind. I have debated this but it is also the scent that places you in a state of mind to perform magick. Have you ever opened a bottle of chamomile essential oil? I actually gagged upon opening the "Now" brand of chamomile oil and felt that the foul odor would not be benificial in my workings. I appreciate this book and I think that both types of oils have a place and Ms. Heldstab's book certainly has a place on my bookshelf.

This book delivers what it promises, quite frankly its the mother of all magical oil formulary. Celeste Rayne Heldstab delivers a book complete formulary of magical oils, there is an oil for every purpose the reader is invited to create their own unique blend of magikal formulary to suit a variety of purpose, everyone from the seasoned practitioner to the neophyte will benefit this is a must for anyone from spiritualist to the every day nurse, doctors, lawyers, teachers who is seeking a way to use the energy of oils to invoke a particular energy. although I ordered my copy from Llewellyn because Amazon did not have it in stock, and it took Llewellyn almost four months to send my copy with no communication, on why the book was delayed *full shade being thrown here* I was very happy once I got the book, it was truly worth the wait, the Author did an outstanding job creating this extensive encyclopedia of over 1200 recipes, potions and tinctures for everyday uses.

I have to say this book surprised me. I give it four stars for the compilation of all the oils, I don't have to look around for recipes because there in one place now. Two types of oils I know appear twice so I took off a star but then added another for the info on oils in the back of the book. Not only did this book give lots of recipes but it gave info that inspired me to create my own oils, oils I couldn't find in this book. I love when a book can inspire me, my creativity. There are several oils on basics like Health, Money, Love, Banishing, etc. but what really surprised me were the oils on Chakra balancing and the addition of carrier/base oils and there magickal properties as well. All in all I do love this book and will definitely refer back to it. Lots of info I didn't know but searched for and now I have it. Thanks for a book I really needed.

I'm a newbie to essential oils and was looking for the deluxe book...this isn't the ultimate for THERAPEUTIC essential oil use. This book is mainly for magical oils, useful for perfumes, and some helpful essential oil information thrown in later. The third section "All About Oils" is most useful to me so far. It features a good amount of information about common, popular essential oils and carrier oils. There is also an appendix with magical/spiritual herbal correspondences listed, which includes love, prosperity, protection, health etc.; planetary correspondences, astrological, and the language of flowers.

This is a good book, but I don't think I can recommend it for a beginner unless you intend to mainly make magical oils and perfumes. Even though it's listed to include therapeutic health & beauty recipes, I couldn't help but gloss over that chapter because there are 1200 recipes, all magical as I had interpreted it. The third section is where therapeutic uses are included; it was a little confusing finding where they were because I had expected them to be listed among the main recipes. It's kind of overwhelming to find something that stands out, as all recipes have a brief description. I'll have to look elsewhere for an all-purpose essential oil book. I am dabbling in perfumes and interested in magical oils, so this book will not go to waste by any means, but I'm disappointed I didn't read further about its contents before spending $15 on a limited-use book. It's not exactly what I was looking for, it's not all what I expected, but I do believe it to be filled with useful information. I believe the rating I'm giving for the actual book to be fair and not completely basing my opinion of it on my expectations.
