Before I got distracted by other things (there’s just something about companies touting therapeutic grade oils that makes me turn purple), I was going to post about using more than one oil at a time.
I’ve already discussed using Get A Job oil in a number of ways other than candle magick(over here, if you’ve forgotten about it), and mentioned that you don’t have to use just one oil at a time. Lots of oils are complementary – not just in purpose, but in scent as well. For example, Quadrivium’s Get A Job, Crown of Success, and Money Drawing are made from different formulas and have different herbs added to them, but some of the “base notes” of the scent are the same. This post does not deal with candle magick, since that’s a fairly obvious use for the oils and you can get more than one candle going at a time without causing problems.
The key to layering oils is to use tiny amounts. As mentioned before, some people are really sensitive to smell, or allergic to particular scents. It’s not just a matter of protecting your own nose, but being considerate to the people around you.
A fair amount of thought should got into your oil selection, whether you’re using one oil or more. When using more than one oil, the best way I’ve found to work is to pick one main oil, and one or two secondary oils. That will require you to decide what you’re trying to achieve, and look at the purposes of the oils you’re considering. Finding work – ANY work? You’ll want your main oil to be Get A Job. Looking for a particular KIND of work, one that suits you and where you can develop a career? Crown of Success might be a better option for a main oil. Money Drawing is almost always a good secondary oil to use for this purpose, since the purpose of a job is to get money, usually.
That said, back to finding work. Let’s say you’re about to sit down to check Monster.com or another website for job listings. Before you boot up the computer, put a drop (no, really, a drop) of Get A Job on your hands. Rub them together. Then do a drop of Money Drawing. Rub. Anoint the four corners of your screen with Crown of Success, and boot up your computer to start looking for work.
You got an interview! A drop of Get A Job on your belt, a smidge of Crown of Success on yourself (maybe around your hairline, if you’re not sensitive to it – I like the symbolism of anointing the crown of the head with Crown of Success), maybe a little Money Drawing oil on your socks, and you’re as well-prepared with magical oils as it gets.
Remember: tiny amounts of oil, inconspicuous places, and check ahead of time to be sure that your body chemistry works well with any oil you’re putting on your skin.
