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.
