|Oak moss 1oz.|

Magickal Uses: Protection, purification, consecration, magical potency, and more. This is the main ingredient in the incense formula for Church Incense which is used by churches across the globe.
|Onion Powder 1oz.|
Oingnum, Onyoun, Unyoun, Yn-leac
Magickal Uses:Rub the blade of magickal swords and knives to purify them. Onion is protective and is uses as amulets in the home for this. Cut into halves or quarters, they absorb negativity, evil and disease. A decorative amulet to guard the home from evil is to take a small white onion and cover it with black-headed pins (this may be done in a design) and set it in the window. Use the dried flowers also as decoration and to protect the home or grow a plant in a pot for this. To use for healing, cut in half and rub on the afflicted part while visualizing the disease entering the onion. Then burn the onion or “smash” it into pieces and bury. New England settlers used onions to guard the home from infections by hanging a garland of them over the door. Placing a cut onion underneath the kitchen sink will do the same thing. Onions have been used as a cure for warts. Rub the wart with a piece of onion, and then throw it over your right shoulder while walking away without looking back. Use a large red (Bermuda) onion for protection from illness and aid in recuperation by tying it to the bedpost. An onion placed beneath the pillow will bring prophetic dreams and to discern the right decision, scratch the possible actions on an onion (one action per onion). Place them in the dark and wait to see which one sprouts first. That will be the answer.
|Orange peel 1oz.|
Magickal Uses: In China the orange is considered a symbol of luck and good fortune. Add the peel to prosperity powders, incenses and mixtures. Use in love sachets and mixtures; the dried peel and seeds for love affairs; the blossoms to those with the intent of a wedded bliss. Add the fresh or dried blossoms, or the distilled water from the flowers, to the bath to become more attractive. To gleam the answers to a yes or no question eat an orange. Then count the number of seeds. An even number, the answer is no; an odd, the answer is yes. Orange juice may be a substitute for wine at rituals. Drinking an infusion of orange peels will guard against drunkenness.
Magickal Uses:Oregano is a Venus and Air herb. It is an herb of happiness, tranquility, good luck, health, and protection. Make a Tea or burn as an incense for any of the above, and for letting go of someone you love - be it a husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, or anyone else that it hurts to leave.
Plant Oregano around your house for protection, and scatter it inside the house to protect it (add violets to protect the family from colds). Carry it in a sachet or charm to bring good luck and good health. It is also said to protect and promote psychic dreams when worn on the head during sleep.
|Orris root 1oz.|
Florentine Iris, Queen Elizabeth Root
Magickal Uses: The root of this plant is used for attracting love, protection and divination. Carry the whole root; add the powder to sachets, sprinkle on your sheets, clothing and body and home. The powder is also known by the name “Love Drawing Powder”. In Japan the leaves and roots are hung from the eaves of the home or added to the bath for protection. To use in divining, attach a small piece of the root to a string, cord or piece of yarn and use as a pendulum
