Van Van Oil
This is a staple of Hoodoo Conjure practice.
The purpose of Van Van Oil is to remove “old conditions”.
This might mean stripping away the mental funk that accompanies leaving a job. It could be that you had a bad day yesterday or the day before and it just won’t die.
Maybe you’ve felt stuck in a rut for several months or even years. Perhaps several members of your family say with conviction that there is a family curse.
If they also present some compelling evidence that someone was in fact working roots on your grandfather… you might want to take it seriously.
Van Van Oil makes an excellent addition to any Cut & Clear work, which is when you are trying to get over a relationship that has ended.
It also serves well as a supplement to Uncrossing rituals. For example, a full, nine day Uncrossing Rite would typically be started on a Sunday.
What if it’s Tuesday and you want to do something right away? Use Van Van in the meantime.
Van Van Oil Formula
The formula is traditional, with slight variations between different practitioners.
Mine uses a high quality Frankincense (with some Oman Hojari Frankincense too!), Lemon, Citronella and Lemongrass.
I also use a large amount of Vetiver (real Vetiver essential oil, which Is quite pricey). This alone sets it aside from competitors.
One thing that I don’t use… Pyrite or any other, gritty item, like Lodestone Food.
I have those things but I don’t feel that they belong. They don’t actually macerate into the oil and some of it gets out of the bottle, making it messier to deal with.
It clogs up the seal of the cap, making the bottle leak and I just don’t see the point.
You can add that, if you want but a pure liquid with no more fluff than some plant material feels right for a cleansing oil.
The concentrate of Van Van Oil (no carrier oil) is added to Murphy’s Oil Soap to make Chinese Wash.
Murphy’s contains some of the same ingredients, so the soap, the oil and Chinese Wash all have a similar fragrance.
