Essential Oil Correspondences


Essential Oil Correspondences are similar to Herbal Correspondences because essential oils are derived from plants, herbs flowers and roots. 

Below is a listing of common oil correspondences. This info is important when making your own special Oil Recipes which combine these essential oils in a neutral base.

Beginning Tips:

A good place to start is with 2 ounces oil per 2 tablespoons herb or flower. Remember a little oil goes a long way. You can use Mineral Oil or some other neutral carrier oil to absorb the scent and properties of the herb.*

It is helpful to visualize the purpose for which you are making the oil throughout the process or you can say a little chant pertaining to that certain oil while making it to add more of your energy and power to it.

It is important that you cap the jars tightly or you will have moldy mixtures. Remember the darker the bottle, the better your oil will keep. Add tincture of benzoin to preserve your oils.

Making your own Essential Oils:

Pour your oil into your mortar. Add your herb a little at a time, pressing it into the oil with your pestle. After you have combined it well, pour it into a bottle. Store the bottle in a dark, consecrated place for three days. On the fourth day check oil to see if it has absorbed enough of the scent.

You can repeat this process of scenting your oil until its as strong as you desire. When the scent is right for you it is ready for use in your spellwork. Strain with cheesecloth, store in tightly capped dark glass bottles with a little tincture of benzoin to preserve.

1 teaspoon = 5 ml
1 teaspoon = 100 drops

* Carrier Oils (Base Oils)

Base oils are oils that carry essential oils to their destination and to dilute the essential oils because they are usually too strong to apply to the body alone. Possible carrier oils include:

Apricot Kernel oil: This pale yellow oil provides a light texture and is rich in vitamins and minerals.

Avocado oil: This is a very rich, dark green oil. It is highly nutritious with essential fatty acids, minerals, protein, vitamin E, and beta carotene and penetrates the skin easily.

Castor oil: A thick, sticky oil with a strong odor. It has good lubricating properties.

Coconut oil: This light colored oil turns solid at cool room temperatures. The fractionated version is extremely light and does not go rancid with age, making it a very versatile carrier oil.

Grapeseed oil: This oil has a very fine texture and a slight greenish hue. It provides vitamins and minerals. It is also used as an antioxidant and can prolong the life of other oils.

Jojoba oil: Its chemical makeup is closer to that of a liquid wax than that of a vegetable oil. It is an antioxidant and does not turn rancid. Jojoba oil is a natural mimic of the oil secreted by the human skin. It lubricates and protects. It is almost identical to valuable oil found in the Sperm whale.

Olive oil: Extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil is the best quality available. It is rich in minerals, vitamins, and proteins.

Sunflower Seed oil: This is a light textured, golden yellow oil. It is high in nutrients, essential fatty acids, and vitamins.

Sweet Almond oil: This pale yellow oil contains glyceride, olein, and linoleic acid. It is an excellent skin lubricant and is rich in protein,vitamins, and minerals. This is a very good medium-light general purpose oil.

Wheat Germ oil: This reddish-orange oil is heavy and sticky. It is rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, and especially vitamin E. It is often added to other blends since its antioxidant properties can extend the shelf life of more volatile oils.

Some others are: peach kernel oil, hazelnut oil, camelia oil and macadamia oil.
