A Fluid Condenser is a blend of natural ingredients prepared in a symbolic way using magickal correspondences, timing, and ritual. There are several types of fluid condensers — liquid, solid, and gaseous — none of which are edible. Liquid fluid condensers are a delight to make, and with the change of season ahead, you might want to cast your crafty eyes on gathering and brewing your own powerful magick enhancer!
There are several theories on how a fluid condenser operates. Some feel the purpose of the fluid condenser is to securely hold specified energy (impregnated thoughts) until the practitioner directs and releases that energy to the defined goal or target. In this line of thinking, the fluid condenser is thought to be able to accumulate substantial charges of energy that, when directed properly, can help a magickal working come to fruition quickly and with speed. Think of it like a conjure oil on steroids or an energy storage locker.
Others believe that the condenser is more of an attraction mechanism, pulling the right combination of power to amplify and assist in solidifying your thought pattern. Finally, there are those who think the fluid condensers do both; store and amplify (that would be me).
Regardless of the theories, most people who use a liquid condenser agree that they work extremely well due to the tincture of gold in the formula as it is believed that gold grabs and holds power. Here at the hearthstone, we are of the opinion that the liquid fluid condensers take the charge of sound extremely well (tuning forks, chanting, drumming, singing) which works perfectly in our Spiritism, Braucherei and whisper magicks.
The process of creating a liquid fluid condenser isn’t tedious; but, it does take time. The technique calls for two to three times reduction through boiling (depending upon the specific intent) of distilled, spring, or well water — and the lid is to be kept on during the cooling process, which can take several hours depending upon conditions. I use water from an underground mountain aquifer, as well as fresh and dried organic and wildcrafted herbs, which means that our fluid condensers are created only in season and in small batches. Astrological timing is also a big factor, particularly for our Psychic Divination compound condenser. In 2016 I showed a pictorial sequence and short video clip on my Instagram account of the brewing and empowering of the Divination Liquid Fluid Condenser, which we stored in a jar painted black.
I gather the flowers and herbs and then prepare the condensers either in my kitchen or, if weather permits, on a metal tripod over an outdoor fire, finishing with a complete ritual empowerment sequence. I always offer the herbs to the four directions and bless them with holy water and candle fire. If you wish to make your own liquid fluid condenser, you can review the step by step instructions in my book “The Witching Hour” available on Amazon, at your favorite magickal book store, or on my WhisperMagick website.
Currently, I make both compound (many herbal ingredients) and simple (only one herbal ingredient) Liquid Fluid Condensers.
How to Use: Fluid Condensers sold in Silver’s Shoppe come with a dropper cap because you only need to use a few drops for any magick or ritual endeavor. The shelf-life is exceptionally long due to the alcohol content, so you don’t have to worry about your condenser going bad. Our practices here have shown that the liquid fluid condensers work very well for anointing objects, dressing poppets, creating talismans (which many feel may have been the fluid condenser’s original purpose), anointing candles, dotting on conjure bags, and a compendium of other magickal operations from healing to drawing good fortune, to work for rendering justice and sending back negative energy. Use with water, (3 drops of fluid condenser) in a boiling cauldron with a person’s name immersed, is believed to facilitate quick healing.
Currently at our WhisperMagick shoppe — We have five Liquid Fluid Condensers available:
Spirits of Marigold — for success, good fortune, happiness, and general well-being
Spirits of Rose — for love, healing, friendship, all things female and navigation
Spirits of Violet — for protection and harmony in the home Spirits of Divination — a compound condenser — for all matters of divinatory work
Universal Fluid Condenser — a compound condenser that can be used for all workings
Liquid Fluid Condensers are more expensive than oils due to the time-intensive process in the collection of the herbs and preparation sequence. I paint the eyes of all my dolls with the Spirits of Divination condenser and the Spirits of Violet condenser. I also anoint the sigil papers that are in my dolls with the Universal Fluid Condenser. February is a wonderful time for blessing garden tools that will be used in the coming growing season. I’ll be adding 3 drops of Universal Liquid Fluid Condenser to the tool rinse water.
Whether you make your own or purchase from a reputable supplier, once you start using a liquid fluid condenser, you won’t want to give up the practice! To us, the condensers add so much more to our workings. Why not try using one and feel free to post here your experience! We would love to hear!
