Lughnassadh Incense 5
2 tsp. Frankincense
1 tsp. hops (or sandalwood with a few drops of beer)
1 tsp. apple blossom
1 tsp. blackberry leaves

Lughnassadh Oil
2 parts lime oil
2 parts cinnamon oil
2 parts sandalwood oil
1 part clove oil
1 part frankincense oil

Mix well and bottle. Use in Lughnasadh/Lammas rituals.

Lughnassadh Oil 2
2 tsp. wheat germ oil
6 drops frankincense oil
2 drops clary sage oil
1 drop rose oil
sunflower oil to make 2 TB.

Mix well and bottle. Use in Lughnasadh/Lammas rituals

Lammas Soap
1 cup grated unscented soap
1/4 cup hot water
1 tbsp. apricot oil
1 tbsp. sunflower petals
1/2 tbsp. blackberry leaves
6 drops rosemary oil
3 drops sandalwood oil

Place grated soap in a heat-proof non-metallic container and add the hot water and apricot oil. Leave until it is cool enough to handle, and then mix together
with your hands. If the soap is floating on the water, add more soap. Leave to sit for 10 minutes, mixing occasionally, until the soap is soft and mushy. Once
the soap, water, and oil are blended completely, add the dry ingredients. Once the mixture is cool, then add the essential oils (essential oils evaporate
quickly in heat). Enough essential oils should be added to overcome the original scent of the soap. Blend thoroughly and then divide the soap mixture
into four to six pieces. Squeeze the soaps, removing as much excess water as possible into the shape you desire, and tie in a cheesecloth. Hang in a warm,
dry place until the soap is completely hard and dry.
