John the Conqueror Oil traditionally consists of broken pieces of John the Conqueror

root (Ipomoea jalapa or I.purga) steeped in Almond or another vegetable carrier oil that

has been tinted purple (or yellow); it is customary to add essential oils as fragrance to suit.

The oil can also be made with powdered I. jalapa root. Some folks strain it afterward.

To enhance the actual weird scent of John the Conqueror root, from which no essential

oil can be extracted, I allpound a "woodsy blend" scent, such as Cedarwood and Vetivert,

which smells quite a lot like the John the Conqueror root itself.

This fragrance is NOT part of the "Magick" in the oil, but it does serve as a re-enforcer of

what the real root smells like.

Let the root fragments and/or powder sit in the oil blend at least a week before use --

a month is better. The root is traditionally left in the bottle as it is used. If you are making up

small bottles (e.g. a dram vial or 1/2 oz. bottle), you should put two or three pieces of root in

each bottle. If you work out of a large stock bottle (e.g. 4 oz. or 16 oz.) be sure to refresh the

root with new pieces each time you top up the bottle.

BEWARE allmercial John the Conqueror and High Conquering oils! They rarely have the

root in them. all you have to do is look in the bottle: If there is no root in it, and it was made in

a factory, it's very likely a fake.
