This High John the Conqueror oil is all-natural version of the popular New Orleans oil used for general anointing, legal aid, and overcoming unfavorable odds. Focus herb: High John the Conqueror root

The High John the Conqueror “essential oil” which I fell in love with and still use in perfume formulations is a synthetic. At the request of customers, who were also seeking a High John the Conqueror formulation utilizing ONLY true essential oils, I potioned up this magick oil. First, I soak true High John the Conqueror root (botanical source, not magical source) in my usual Almond/Jojoba base oil. Then I add to it a number of essential oils which together approach the perfume value of the synthetic High John while maintaining the true essential oil natural correspondences of High John.

There is significant disagreement about which planet corresponds to High John the Conqueror Root. I have finally settled on a firm opinion. High John is a perennial relative of the Morning Glory, and the root is the useful magickal part. When it is sliced, as for drying, it betrays the growth year rings, which correspond to the rings of the planet Saturn. Considering the very broad uses of High John for luck, money, legal aid, overcoming odds, etc, we could easily lump these intentions into the broad category of Destiny workings, which is ruled by the planet Saturn. Regular Morning Glory is ruled by Saturn as well. My High John potions are therefore made on the Saturday immediately before or following the Full Moon.

These magick oils are also called ritual oils, anointing oils or condition oils. They can be used to anoint a person, candle, mojo bag, lucky coins, jewelry, amulets, statues, prayer or spell scrolls, or anything that has a connection with the purpose of the oil or the "condition" it is made to address. Use them according to your inspiration, imagination, the instructions in a book, your Spirit Guide, teacher or Angel's recommendations, or how your Grandma taught you.
