Special Wick Oil #20

This is one of those practically all-purpose formulas that ought to be a staple on every practitioner's altar. Similar to formulas like Attraction that's a combo formula for love, luck, and money, Special #20 is suitable for a variety of purposes: love, general luck, money luck, and some folks say it's even effective for increasing your general happiness and mood and getting rid of "bad vibes." 

When you order a honey jar spell kit from me, you get a bottle of this oil. Though the herbs that come with your kit are customized and hand-mixed according to your case, the oil is almost always Special #20.

Why? Because this formula kicks serious ass. It is multipurpose and super strong and is good for dressing an astonishing variety of candles. Also, it smells awesome.

I *love* this stuff. I make my own, obviously, but I'm so devoted to it that I sort of collect it, too. I love to see how different practitioners make theirs, what touches they put on theirs, what subtleties of scent they have going on, etc.

This is one of the formulas I'm proudest of - I tinkered with it for *years* before I settled on my current formula, but I'm often still doing little tweaks here and there as the years go on. For instance, if I find a supplier with an extra-nice version of one of the essential oils, I will play around with a few different batches, modifying the amount of EO in several different batches and seeing how they "age" over a few months.

Same with herbal matter that goes directly into the mother bottle, as some of the herbal matter will also contribute to scent changes as the "brew" develops and matures. And my current batch has a particular root in it that I'm seeing the scent effects of, because they differ ever so slightly from the effects of using that same plant's leaf in the mother bottle. So the ingredients don't change, but the proportions and specifics might over time, just a bit.

Please be aware that the cost of one of the main ingredients was 4,900% higher last year than it was the last time I made a batch of this in 2015.

That is not a typo.

So I'm not trying to be all dramatic and manipulative when I say that I might not be able to make this formula the way I've been making it all these years for very much longer. The recipe's gonna have to change unless the ingredient prices go way down. But for now, it's still the same formula I've been making all these years.

HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5-10 business days; will be longer for large, customized, and international orders; and are estimates only. If you're the type to leave negative feedback because you think it took too long, you should order somewhere else and not from me. I do custom work, not mass production. I want you to get your order and to be happy with it, but you need to allow me time to do your work properly.

I make all my formulas in tiny batches with personal attention at every step, and I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on ingredients that I need to reorder or that I have to go to the back two acres and dig up more of a root I need to make your item. Hardly anything is sitting on a shelf waiting to be popped into an envelope. 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.

Also, 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, stuff like that. So if you must have an item by a certain date, you need to write me first to confirm I can meet your expectations. See the Shipping/Handling page for details on rates, missing/damaged packages, and notifications. 

USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (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 all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.

LEGALESE:  As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
