The Holy Trinity of Altar Oils

In the New Orleans Voodoo hoodoo formulary, there are three conjure oil formulas that are considered the Holy Trinity of Altar oils. These formulas are included in the revised edition of the Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook, slated for release in November 2011. These formulas are among over 100 additional formulas added to the revised edition of the Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook, and this is just some of the new content that will be available to all very, very soon. 

Here is an except from the Chapter Conjure, Spiritual and Anointing Oils.

Altar Oil (See Holy Spirit and Van Van)

Altar Oil is one of the holy trinity of altar formulas used by New Orleans practitioners when working for positive purposes such as healings and blessings (Altar, Holy Spirit, and Van Van). It is used to anoint candles for beginning and ending candle magic spells, and it is used to summon helpful spirits for assistance with the work to be done. Because the ingredients used in the formula are all highly positive energies, this oil should never be used to anoint candles or other ritual objects for left-handed or sinister purposes. Altar oil is designed for blessing oneself or another, ritual objects, or anything that resides on the altar.
