Abra-Melin Anointing Oil : French Manuscript
This anointing oil is taken from the 'Book of Abra-Melin', which tells the story of an Egyptian magician who taught a system of magic to Abraham of Worms, c1362-1458. This is the 'Mathers' recipe, from his mistranslation of a French manuscript, the result being the inclusion of Galangal in place of Calamus. The resulting symbolism changes from fertility to union with the absolute. Use for the Abra-Melin Operation, for consecrating magical tools, bindings, pacts, and communicating with spirits. Made on the day and in the hour of the Sun.
