The elemental powers of fire can be tapped for magical uses. A simple method is using a fluid condenser-a magically charged infusion of herbs for implementing in rituals and spellwork. Tinctures, extracts, oils, and resins are fluid condensers. Fire rules the banishing of illness and good health. For ridding illness, obtain some herbs of your choice, such as angelica, basil, cinnamon, juniper, pennyroyal, or rosemary. Put a handful of herbs in a pot, cover it with water, and boil for twenty-five minutes. Let cool without removing lid. Strain liquid and return to boil until it is half in quantity. Cool, strain, and pour into a dark bottle with vodka. Shake the bottle and store in a dark place for two weeks. Use for anointing healing candles, petitions, and sachets or decant into a spray bottle for spraying a sick room at least twice a day.
