Consecration of the Holy Annointing Oil

 Round oil vessel with virgin olive oil

This is a ritual that I designed, based upon traditional methods and the consecration of the perfumes from the Key and the Heptameron. The Lemegeton mentions anointing with oil, but neither the Key nor the Lemegeton give pieces for it.

The anointing oil can be simple olive oil or the so called Abramelin Oil, after the German recipe.
Imperial Arts uses hyssop oil, but I have two things in mid:

1. If I can get it from a pries, I will use a vial of the Great Holy Anointing Oil used in the church, only made on great occasions.

2. An oil made after the Book of Raziel, which says that the juice of hemp and wormwood makes one see the spirits if anointed with it. I macerated for a long time some dry wormwood in hemp oil, it should suffice.

This conjuration is to be said every morning at sunrise for the preparatory nine days before the evocation towards the East, letting the sunlight hit the vessel with oil. 

Do this upon waking up, after you wash your hands and face and after you brush your teeth, but before drinking or eating anything at all.

Say the Seven Penitential Psalms, then kindle the coals and put a few drops of frankincense. Take the Book in the left hand and the vessel or bottle in the right, and hold it in the smoke, saying this conjuration 3 times:

O God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob, put thy blessing upon this creature of oil, that it may fill up the power and virtue of its substance, so that neither the enemy, nor any false imagination may be able to enter it, and grant it the power of seeing the spirits of heaven, earth and hell once I anoint mine eyes with it and to hear and understand them once I anoint mine temples with it, in thy great name Adonai Tetragrammaton and   through the power of our Lord Jesus Christ! Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.[1]Amen.
