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 from the person the lamp is intended for or their name written on parchment paper cut in the form of a cross. Add a pinch of salt. Pour in two ounces of virgin olive oil that has been thoroughly infused with two tablespoons of the following mixture:
Equal parts of sandalwood, patchouli leaves and gardenia petals.
Now select five of the herbs from the following list and add 1/2 teaspoon of each:
Vetivert - Boldo Leaves - Mandrake Root - Garlic - Snakehead - Balm of Gilead - Basil - Bay Leaf - Asafaetida - Quince Seeds - Lucky Hand Root - Five-Finger Grass - Dragon's Blood - Frankincense - Brimstone - High John the Conqueror Root - Saint John's Wort - African Ginger Root - Black Cohosh - Grape Vine - Fern - Rattlesnake Root - Wolfbane Root - Caraway Seeds
Fill the rest of the way with your basic fuel mixture. Light the lamp and recite a prayer to your Guardian Angel, Saitn Michael, Saint Barbara, or whatever deity you wish to invoke for protection.
Once it is lit, the flame must not be extinguished until you feel your protection is complete. 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.
Note: If some of the ingredients seem difficult to acquire, feel free to use any herbs and oils that are useful in spells for protection. For example, peppercorns can be substituted for patchouli leaves, and mint leaves can be substituted for gardenia petals..
