Mood Magic: Blue Moon Balm

Cerridwen Greenleaf (author of The Herbal Healing Handbook) has an oil recipe for healing oneself and delivering health to all.

Mood Magic: Blue Moon Balm

For a dreary day and a dark mood, use the strength of the olden unguent to release both mind and body. This desert plant produces a protective oil, which works as both a sunscreen and a moisturizer. Combine the following oils with either four ounces of unscented body lotion, or two ounces of olive oil or sweet almond oil:

  • 2 drops chamomile oil
  • 2 drops neroli
  • 8 drops aloe
  • 6 drops rose oil

Shake the oils together and place in a corked pottery jar. Sit quietly in a room lit only by one blue candle, and rub the balm gently into your skin after a bath. Pray aloud:

Work thy spell to heal and nurse. Blessed balm, banish my pain. Harm to none and health to all.
