Full Moon Pomegranate Seed Anointing Oil

This post is sponsored by Mountain Rose Herbs. I received the products described in this post at no cost, but all opinions expressed are my own.

To anoint someone or something with oil is to consecrate them as sacred. This practice extends back to ancient times, whether we are talking Biblical, Egyptian or Greek. Often, a person is anointed with oil on the forehead but oil can be used to anoint any part of the body or just about any object. Sometimes when anointing an object, the practice may be referred to as “dressing”.

I also like to think of anointing as part of a self-care and skincare routine. More and more, we are seeing a trend towards daily hygiene and caring for our bodies become a part of spiritual practice and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I mist my face with essential oils in the morning before applying my makeup and apply a decadent cream before bed, and I absolutely consider these acts to be part of my spiritual practice. 

Full Moon Pomegranate Seed Anointing Oil | The Witch of Lupine Hollow

Anointing oil can be both a magickal and self-care tool, especially if made with ingredients that are great for your skin. Pomegranate seed oil, made from cold pressing organic pomegranate seeds, is a wonderful skincare ingredient often described as “luxurious.” 

Pomegranates are a bit divisive, magickally speaking. They are most often linked to the myth of Persephone and the Underworld, a tale of darkness, seasons and intensity. Traditional books of magickal correspondences may tell you that pomegranates are ruled by fire and masculine energies like the planet, Mercury. Those are valid options and may be the energies you wish to work with surrounding pomegranates. 

However, my own practice with pomegranates is much more feminine. I work with pomegranates in a watery state, ruled by Scorpio and the dwarf planet, Pluto. In ancient astrology, before the discovery of Pluto, Scorpio was ruled by Mars, the fieriest and most masculine of planets, so it makes sense that pomegranate has these two faces. 

Regardless of the fruit’s astrological rulers, pomegranates are magickally associated with divination, wisdom, wishes, fertility and magick of all kinds. Pomegranates are an incredibly powerful fruit for working magick and are especially appropriate to work with at the full moon or at Mabon and Samhain, which is why I’m so excited to include the lovely Pomegranate Seed Oil from Mountain Rose Herbs in this anointing oil recipe!

Full Moon Pomegranate Seed Anointing Oil

An anointing oil to use when making magick or holding rituals on the full moon.

Ingredients

  • 8 ml pomegranate seed oil
  • 12 drops lavender essential oil
  • 8 drops jasmine essential oil
  • 5 drops myrrh essential oil

Instructions

  1. Mix pomegranate seed oil with all other ingredients together in a 10 ml glass bottle using a dropper. 

  2. Place the cap on the bottle and shake to combine. 

  3. You may also want to place a roller ball on the bottle for ease of use and application. 

Why these ingredients for the full moon?

Pomegranates, as discussed above, are associated with divination and making magick so they are perfect for magickal, full moon nights. 

Lavender is one of my favorite herbs for the full moon, as it is associated with sleep and dreams, especially dreams that give us some psychic insight. 

Jasmine is ruled by the Moon itself and is associated with love, dreams and sensuality. 

Myrrh is an ancient, sacred resin that is ruled by the Moon and associated with healing and spirituality. Anointing a person or object with myrrh is an excellent way to consecrate them as sacred.
