1 oz. Spirit-Drawing Oil
1 tsp. each of 5 "spirit herbs" [fresh, dried or in oil form]
(acacia, anise seed, belladonna, calendula flowers, celery seed, Datura, marjoram, mugwort, rosemary, rose water, thyme, valerian, violet, wolfsbane)
Red and blue food coloring
Prepare the lamp on a night when there is a bright full moon, or during heavy rain or a thunderstorm. Add the spirit oil, five of the herbs/oils and enough red and blue food coloring to obtain a deep violet color.
Any time you wish to attract spirits of the dead, light the lamp and allow it to burn for one hour before attempting to call the spirits. It is best to call spirits during a full moon, when there is a storm, or near midnight.
To make Spirit-Drawing Oil:
Add 1 tsp. each of frankincense and myrrh to 3 oz. violet oil and a few drops of tincture of benzoin to prevent mixture from becoming stale. Like the lamp itself, the oil should be made during a time when spirits are more likely to walk. Allow mixture to set for nine days in a dark place and strain.
