Black Arts Oil
When we talk about Black Arts in conjure, we’re not necessarily just talking about cursing and jinxing, though that’s certainly part of the power that Black Arts products are designed to amplify for the user of the formula. But Black Arts also refers to necromancy, the ability to communicate with the dead and with ancestors, scrying, conjuration of spirits, and the power of reversing hexes (and sending them back “with interest” which veers over into Revenge rather than simple Reversing).
And that's how this oil was designed.
Comes in a half ounce bottle. Will not smell like perfume or Bath and Body Works :)
HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days and will be longer for custom-finished items and large orders. Why? Two reasons:
One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, only decanting your oil order from the mother bottle and adding herbs and prayers after your order's come in, for instance. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience. There are plenty of other places where you can get 2-day turnaround. There aren't plenty of other places where you can be sure your order is getting that kind of personal attention from someone knowledgeable. And that personal attention is my goal.
Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line (yes, we have DSL) or the postal service just not coming here at all for a few days because a storm washed our mailbox into the ditch down the dirt road, stuff like that.
USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use this oil as an anointing oil (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that I cannot possibly predict individual sensitivities or allergic reactions. They also read more at the FAQ about why it matters. All-natural does not equal hypoallergenic, y'all!
If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education tab in the main menu.
LEGALESE: As required by law, all items are sold as curios and/or for educational purposes in the study of folklore and popular religion. I use these items myself though - I don't sell anything I haven't used myself - and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
