Magickal Oil — Dogwood — April 30, 2013

There are long ways and short ways to make magickal oils.  Some practices require heating, other’s don’t.  I recently took a trip into the woods to gather dogwood flowers, leaves, and bark for a Braucherei oil blend to show my Granny Magick students.

Leaves, flowers and barks can be placed in your chosen carrier oil.

Not only is the oil great for secrecy and protection, it has a compendium of healing associations including workings for restful sleep, healing wounds and broken bones, breaking fevers, meditation, and eliminating infection.

  1. Thanks Silver! do you have a preference for color or carrier oil? I have both the cream (not white) and dark pink dogwood varieties and, aside from color correspondences, I’m curious to hear if you’ve found any differences between the different kinds of dogwood trees.

  2. Thank you for this Silver, I think it’ll be good to use the infused oil in making a magical cleansing soap.

    1. This tree has always fascinated me with its fairy tale like petals floating on the wind, I’ll be gathering some later. We found a branch of this after a windy day and my husband carved it into a wand for me. I haven’t used it yet, but the same properties would apply, is that right?

  3. Thank you Lady Silver. A couple of questions… Are there particular oils to use with the dogwood & type of dogwood used?
