Abramelin Oil is a ceremonial magickal oil first described in a medieval grimoire called The Book of Abramelin written by Abraham the Jew and based on the Jewish Holy anointing oil of the Tanakh, found in the Book of Exodus.
Abramelin Oil is probably the ultimate consecration oil for occultists and ritual magicians and can be used to bless working tools, charms, spells and people as part of initiation or ascendancy rituals.
There seems to be confusion about the actual recipe itself though. Both proportions and ingredients have been muddled in translation from German to English, specifically the use of galangal or calamus. Both S. L Mathers and Aleister Crowley recommend galangal, particularly because it represents for them, ‘both Kether and Malkuth, the First and the Last, the One and the Many.’
The original recipe suggests using raw ingredients as part of a maceration, but Crowley advocated the use of essential oils. Our version uses both, in a subtle blend that is suitable for application to the skin (please see our standard recommendation about testing for allergy before use) as well as charms, spells and magickal items. We also like to leave raw ingredients in our bottles, as we have found that this adds to the magickal charge of our preparations. We also double consecrate all our oils, using previous batches to make the next one, for the same reason.
