Wisdom Candle Anointing Oil  

Posted in , ,

This is a really good anointing oil to have. It's tough to read here in the picture so I've posted it below:
  • 1 airtight 2 oz. jar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon rosemary
  • 10 drops myrrh oil
  • Light colored olive oil - used to completely fill the jar

Mix well in an airtight two-ounce jar. Turn jar over daily for at least 10 days before using. Rub the oil on the candle before burning.

Interesting Point: I was raised Catholic and every February 3rd we would go have our throats blessed - using anointed candles. Known as the feast day for Saint Blaise; two candles are blessed, held slightly open, and pressed against the throat as a blessing is said. Saint Blaise's protection of those with throat troubles apparently comes from a legend that a boy was brought to him who had a fishbone stuck in his throat. The boy was about to die when Saint Blaise healed him.

There are so many similarities between Sabbats and 'holy days' - it's so interesting!

I actually had a Pagan woman, who was raised Catholic, say the very same thing.
She said so many of the Catholic rituals were quite Pagan...from the priest's robes to all the candles and incense.

It's interesting. :)
