A Magick Lamp for Self Improvement

The type of lamp recommended is a hurricane or kerosene lamp.The basic fuel mixture is a blend of castor oil, olive oil, and kerosene. Use 2/3 kerosene to 1/3 oil mixture. A simple terracotta oil lamp may also be used - the basic fuel mixture would then be olive oil, or palm oil.

Start with a clean lamp - a new one is best - but a used one is fine as long as it has been thoroughly cleansed.

At the bottom of the lamp place a magnet and a personal object or picture. Pour in two ounces of virgin olive oil that has been thoroughly infused with two tablespoons of the following mixture: two parts frankincense and one part benzoin gum.

Now select five of the herbs from the following list and add 1/2 teaspoon of each:

Cinnamon - Yellow Dock - Squill Root - John the Conqueror Root - Silver Weed - Jezebel Root - Prince's Pine - Red Clover - Buckeye - Irish Moss - Five-finger Grass - Elm Bark - May Apple or Mandrake Root - Tonka Bean - Sweet Flag Root - Vervain - Golden Seal 

Fill the rest of the way with your basic fuel mixture. Light the lamp and recite a prayer to Mary Magdelene or whatever deity you wish to invoke to help you with your desire to improve yourself.

Once it is lit, the flame must not be extinguished until the goal is accomplished. Each day at the same time, your desire should be restated and the prayer recited while turning the lamp in a clockwise direction (to get the ingredients moving), and the lamp should be refueled if necessary.

NoteIf some of the ingredients seem difficult to acquire, feel free to use any herbs and oils that are useful in spells for self esteem and/or success. For example, rum and coffee can be substituted for the frankinscense benzoin mixture..
