For years, Scott Cunningham was known as one of the world's experts in the magical uses of herbs and their scents. Some people didn't realize the power of his words because they were always gentle, accepting, and easy to understand. That's why if you're interested in the magical powers of odors and herbs, you will choose The Complete Book of Incense, Oils & Brews.

After Scott wrote the original version of this book (The Magic of Incenses, Oils and Brews) he continued with his own studies. As a result, he rewrote the entire book, adding over 100 new formulas, complete proportions for the recipes, how to substitute ingredients, how to easily capture plant fragrances with alcohol, and much more. 

This book gives the formulas and techniques for incenses, oils, ointments, inks, tinctures, herbal baths, bath salts, brews, ritual soaps, sachets or herbal charms, powders, and more. Would you like an incense to help break a curse? Burn two parts sandalwood and one part bay at night, near an open window. As it smolders, visualize it banishing all negativity. Repeat for seven nights during the waning moon. There are recipes for two other curse-breaking incenses, as well as others for divination, dreams, magical elements, exorcisms, and more. There is Egyptian incense, ceremonial magic incenses, circle incenses, Babylonian incenses, astral travel incense, and a special one for each of the astrological signs and all of the Wiccan holidays.

To list the names for all of the formulas for incenses would take pages. And that's only one part of this book! Scott shows you how to make a Fast Money Oil (7 drops patchouli, 5 drops cedarwood, 4 drops vetivert, and 2 drops ginger in a neutral base oil). Just mix and smell each scent as it is added while visualizing cash flow. He then reveals how to use various oils for a wide variety of purposes including business success, energy, purification, initiation, love, and power. You'll also find recipes for oils for all of the astrological signs, for many of the gods and goddesses such as Demeter and Pan. 

There are four different versions of the famous Witch's Flying Ointment. Which one will work for you? Learn the basics for making ointments as well as how to make specific ointments for healing, love, exorcism, lust, psychic powers, and more.

This book includes numerous correspondences and Scott gives the Latin names for hundreds of herbs with common names. Add to that a list of sources for the herbs and you really do have The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews.

The techniques and recipes in this book will show you how to use all of these wonderful tools. It's ideal if you're just getting started and a valuable resource if you want to discover ways to enhance your magic. This book should be in the collection of every magical person.


Grave minding and grave decorating traditions run hand in hand with the season of Samhain, and perhaps nowhere is this as apparent as in Central and South America during Dias de los Muertos. However, elements of this practice are easily incorporated into modern Pagan traditions and offer a subtle yet powerful method of honoring the dead. It is... read this article
