PAIN RELEIVER SALVE
Mix together 1 oz of chickweed (reduces inflammation and aids in healing), 1 oz of
wormwood (a great pain reliever), and 1 ounce of yarrow (an anti-bacterial agent that
also helps relieve pain). The yarrow plant contains achillein and achilleic acid.
These substances reduce the clotting time of blood, so they help stop any bleeding.
Yarrow also has pain-killing and anti-inflammatory properties that are similar to aspirin.
Add the mixture of herbs to 2 pints of olive oil and simmer 3 hours.
Strain and add 3 ounces of beeswax and 1 teaspoon of tincture of benzoin.
Test for consistency before pouring into wide mouth containers.

This is a ritual for healing any problem. This is usually best performed on a waning moon,
when it is almost new moon. You cannot perform this ritual on someone else without them
being present. You can, however, guide the person who needs healing to do this ritual on
their own. It is only effective if the person with the ailment performs it, so it is ideal to heal yourself.
Your primary ritual tool will be an element. Choose one from the list that is most appropriate
for whatever area of the body you will be healing:
Abdomen: Fire Arms: Earth Blood: Air Bones: Earth Chest: Air
Ears: Water Eyes: Water Feet: Earth Genitalia: Fire Hands: Earth
Heart: Fire Legs: Earth Lungs: Air Mind: Fire Nose: Air Skin: Earth
Stomach: Water Teeth: Earth Throat: Air Uterus: Water
You should prepare for the ritual with a ritual bath. Once you are ready, you can go to your
magickal place and get ready. Your working area should be equipped with whatever is needed
to invite the element of choice into the magic. You can use any method you want to have
the element present, but if you need ideas, here is some help:
Earth: Stones, crystals, a dish of earth, or salt.
Fire: Candles or a small bonfire (be careful and keep a bucket of water handy for emergencies!).
Water: A dish of water will suffice, but if you can perform the ritual near a body of water like
a river or lake that would be ideal. You only need to have the element pertinent to your ritual at hand.
However, if you want to invite all the elements, that is fine too. Just keep the focus on the one vital healing
element. You should dress is all white if at all possible.
Cast your circle around your entire prepared ritual area.
Sit in the center with your element before you. Inhale and exhale deeply and slowly
to reach a meditative state. With your eyes closed, envision a pure white light surrounding you.
Now that you have entered your magical state, take the element into your hands
(if it is water, hold it in a container; if it is fire, hold the candle; if it is air, hold the incense stick, etc.).
Feel the energy of the element flowing through you. Hold the element over the general area
that needs healing and envision the energy flowing into that area. See it being healed.
Continue to allow the elemental energy to flow into the area until a feeling of peace comes over you.
It is done! Close the circle and return the element to nature.
(Note: Do not blow a candle out! Pinch it or extinguish it with a bit of water.)
Have an after-ritual meal of cakes and wine (or bread and juice).
This ritual will begin doings its work immediately, but it will not cure anything instantly.
Allow it a good amount of time, a week for a minor ailment, a month for a major illness.
If you are using any medications or supplements for your illness, it helps to have those
present during the ritual. They will be charged with magickal energy so that when you take them
they will be doing twice the good!
