Charm or Invocation
Goddess blessing through the night,
as full Moon casts a magic light.
Power roused and herbs infused,
blessed for me and for my use.
On the day of the Full Moon bruise and break the valerian root, add the madder root powder and English mandrake. Then crush the mixture into a rough grind. Add to a large mixing bowl or mortar, use a pestle to work the potion. Mix in the wormwood and vervain herbs. Add a palmful or two of the olive oil and work it into a pulpy consistency (recite the above charm to increase the intent while you blend). Pour the pulp into a flat bottom baking dish. Fit a lid and put it in the oven:
15-30 minutes on a very low and gentle heat.
Remove from oven and allow to fully cool.
Stir the mixture (recite charm again) and scrape into a wide-necked glass jar (preserve jar, or similar). Stopper or cap, and leave on a warm south -facing windowsill (so the mixture can absorb sunlight and moonlight) for about a fortnight (14 nights).
Shake well each morning and evening (recite charm if you wish). When you see the New Moon appear, shake the mixture and strain through cheesecloth into a clean jar. Add the rest of the oils listed include the honey and salt. Stopper and shake vigorously.
Replace the jar on the windowsill and agitate vigorously each morning and again at evening until the Moon reaches the First Quarter phase. Leave on the windowsill undisturbed in order to allow mixture to precipitate until the eve of the next Full Moon.
Decant the clearest liquid of the precipitation and pour into a purified amphora or large bottle you already have prepared for ritual purpose.
This is a powerful potion, use it to anoint any sacred object in your spell work. When you use this powerful recipe on yourself, do so sparingly. If you skin is sensitive you may want to use a locket diffuser. Or, make a small potion bottle into a pendant and use the tiniest amount as needed.
