Gardenia Dreams

Some witches use plant extracts to stimulate and enhance dreaming. The gardenia flower has the power to induce prophetic dreams, beckon benevolent spirits, and enhance psychic ability.*

Here are the directions for making gardenia oil to add to a bath:

1. Place the gardenia petals in coconut oil. Use a ratio of 1 cup:1 ounce. At very low heat, heat in a pot with water surrounding the container for 30 minutes. Too hot and you’ll spoil the mixture.

2. Strain the oil to remove the petals. Store in an airtight container.

3. Reserve the oil. Store in an airtight container. Add about 1 tablespoon to your bath.

If you don’t intend to use the oil right away, add ¼ teaspoon of tincture of benzoin as a preservative.
