In the spiritual movement the word Chakra pops up quite a bit. That's fine if you know what it means. Pretty confusing if you don't. The following is a short explanation of what the Chakra System is all about.
The Human Energy Field or Aura is an energetic, multi-dimensional field that surrounds penetrates, and is the human body. It has rivers of energy called meridians that nourish every organ and cell in our bodies. These rivers are supplied by seven cone shaped, spinning vortexes of energy called chakras (pronounced "Shock-ra"). These chakras, in turn, collect energy from the Universal Energy Field that is all around us.
The seven chakras carry the colors of the rainbow spectrum. The Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine carries the color red. The Sacral Chakra, our creative center, vibrates to the color orange. The Solar Plexus Chakra, our self centeredness, carries the color yellow. The Heart Chakra, our feeling center, resonates with the color green. The Throat Chakra, responsible for our expression, carries the color blue. The Brow Chakra radiates indigo is responsible for our dreams and questioning of spiritual things. And the Crown Chakra radiates a violet or white, the highest vibrational rate in the spectrum.
Elementals are the little creatures which animate the four elements. You cannot ordinarily see, hear, feel, taste, or touch them, but this doesn't mean they don't exist; after all, X-rays exist, even though you cannot sense them. You may, however, get to know the elementals through the use of your extraordinary senses.
The four types of elementals are Salamanders (fire), Sylphs (air), Undines (water), and gnomes (earth).
Elementals are experts in their own realms. The Salamander knows everything there is to now about the fire element, both physical and psychological; Sylphs are experts on the subject of air; Undines are experts regarding water; Gnomes specialize in earthy subjects. Elementals are one-element creatures, and as long as they remain imprisoned, so to speak, in their own element they are incapable of learning anything about those elements to which they don't naturally belong.
Elementals aren't entirely happy with this situation. They'd like to progress and evolve, but the only way they can do so is through vicarious association with multi-element creatures, such as human beings. For this reason, elementals seek human companionship. In return for a favored human's "tutelage", they are very willing to give service. The magician who is able to attract a helpful Undine can look forward to expert assistance in matters relating to love, friendship, healing, and the psychic arts. Gnomes will help with career and financial matters, Sylphs with intellectual pursuits, and Salamanders with creative and spiritual issues.
Elemental assistance is much to be desired because it makes pursuit of a goal easier. Called upon for help, an elemental gladly goes to work on his companion's project. You still need to do affirmations, incantations, visualizations, and all of the other work covered to this point--you can never expect anyone or anything to do all of your work for you--But your path to the goal will be greased, so to speak, and you'll see speedier results than if you had no elemental help at all. Magicians who are able to attract elemental companions have a great advantage over those who are not.

Through traditional associations and our own personal relationship with our herbs and minerals we craft oils to aid in certain conditions (‘condition oils’ is another common term used for oils of this type, for they are often used to bring about desired conditions) such as ‘Fast Luck’ or ‘Money Drawing’ or ‘Uncrossing,’ all named for their effect. Oils without so obviously themed names such as ‘VanVan’ or ‘Cleo May’ have a tradition of being used for certain conditions that have been passed down through folk magic.

In modern Pagan religions, people feel drawn towards many of the ancient gods. While this is by no means a complete list, it's a good place to get started. Other Gods and Goddesses are sprinkled throughout the site according to their powers so be sure to use the search feature at the top left hand side (under the banner) and see if the one you are looking for is there.
The seven sacred planets (the five visible planets plus the Sun and Moon) relate to the days of the week and also planetary hours within days and seven sacred planets were associated with ancient Gods and Goddesses. The use then of these planets and their hours has an ancient history in Witchcraft and Paganism. These oils help invoke the powers and characteristics of the individual planetary power. You can use these oils to anoint candles, or wear them as personal scent to help convey the power of the deities represented by the Planets. They may also be combined with Zodiacal Oils when one is working an astrologically-based spell.
There are eight Pagan holidays, and they are collectively called Sabbats. "Sabbat" comes from the French word, "s'ebattre", which means to rejoice, frolic, and revel. That is exactly what these days are for, the joyous celebration of life and nature. Sabbats, are determined by nature, not arbitrarily determined by people. Remember, Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays were combined, and then moved to Monday to boot, you can't get much more arbitrary. The eight Sabbats are determined by the Earth and Sun, and the natural energy created by their relationships to each other. This makes them entirely natural holidays, where the natural energies are at high or low points. These were also important dates to our ancestors, who used them to help determine when to plant, and harvest.
So what are these Sabbats?
Once a year, we have a night that is the longest night of the year, accompanied by the shortest day. We call this day the "Winter Solstice". On the exact opposite point on the wheel of the year, we have the longest day of the year, and the shortest night. This we call the "Summer Solstice". Each Spring, there comes a day when the hours between sunrise and sunset are exactly equal to the hours between sunset and sunrise. This we call the "Vernal Equinox". Each Fall there is another day when the hours of darkness and the hours of daylight are exactly in balance. This we call the "Autumnal Equinox". These four days are known as "quarter-days" as the divide the year into four equal sections. To Pagans, these are also know as the Lesser Sabbats.
The other four holidays are defined by the first four. These days bisect, or are at the midpoint, of the other four holidays. Hence, they are sometimes called the cross-quarter days. These are the also called the Greater Sabbats. These Sabbats are considered by some to be the four most important holidays as they each represent turning points in the seasons, and one is the turning of the year. Between winter solstice and vernal equinox is Imbolc. Between the vernal equinox and summer solstice is Beltane. Between summer solstice and autumnal equinox is Lughnasadh (Lammas). Between autumnal equinox and winter solstice is Samhain (Halloween). Samhain is also the turning of the year, and is considered to be the most important and powerful of all the Sabbats.
The oils below can assist you in everything from anointing candles, being mixed with incense, and anointing individuals as they enter the Circle. Some of the oils are for Rituals you may perform at any time of the year, for consecration of tools and for placing in an atomizer to bring a certain energy into a room.
I’m sure you’ve seen the glass-encased, seven day candles with pictures of the saints on them that are sold at most supermarkets and botanicas. These candles can be lit in the honor of your chosen saint, in an appeal for help and guidance from him or her.
The following oils can be used to anoint to the tops of these candles. They can also be used in incense, and placed on an altar next to a picture or statue of a saint. You can also add the oil to a diffuser on an altar, or dressed on any candle or part of the body as a blessing oil.
Decadent and deliciously smelling, these oils are amazing in diffusers, placed into the bath, or even worn as perfume. Indulge!
Every "Esbat" (Full Moon) has a corresponding energy that comes along with it. Here we have developed a fragrance for each Full Moon on the Wheel of the Year. Including the Blue Moon, which is the Second Full Moon in one month. You may work with these energies any time, regardless of the time of year. Just look at the attributes for the Full Moon energy you wish to work with and utilize it in your ritual and spellcraft.

A long time ago when people still spoke and worked with the plants, trees and the gods, learned of the Solanaceae genus of plants. They learned of their good and bad vibrations. Many people died for their knowledge of such plants. Plants are neither good nor evil in their nature. It is humankind that sets a plant toward a good purpose for healing, or a bad one for killing or cursing. Only in the last century have extracts of these plants been used in modern medicine. For example atropine, which is derived from Belladonna, Datura, and Mandrake, is listed as a “core medicine” on the World Health Organization’s “Essential Drugs List” as it is used for heart, lung, nervous system problems as well as resuscitation after heart failure, and it is also an antidote for different types of poisoning. All of the plants in the Solanaceae family should never be taken internally due to the compound tropane found within them.
Diana to Aradia from Aradia or the Gospel of the Witches of Italy:
“And thou shalt be the first of witches known;
And thou shalt be the first of all i’ the world;
An thou shalt teach the art of poisoning,
Of poisoning those who are great lords of all;
Yea, thou shalt make them die in their palaces;
And thou shalt bind the oppressor’s soul with witchcraft;
And when ye find a peasant who is rich,
Then ye shall teach the witch, your pupil, how
To ruin all his crops with tempests dire,
With lightning and terrible thunder,
And with the hail and wind…“

This is a cautious journey into the darker side of Nature and her fiercer aspect as manifested in the so called ‘baneful’ herbs. While there are as many ethical codes as there are types of Witches, remember that every herb has its own blessings and curses. For instance, you might regularly sprinkle nutmeg on your pies yet if you were to consume a whole nutmeg pod, you most certainly would die a painful death! You must decide for yourself if your usage is educated, just, and worth the risk. Baneful herbs tend to be toxic, making them stronger and faster acting both physically and spiritually. Considering the potential health and legal risks of using baneful herbs, why would any practitioner do so? Used in magick and medicine for centuries, these botanical curiosities can lead to hallucination, coma, or painful death if not applied properly. Then again, so can the misuse of modern pharmaceutical medicines. For those of us who are drawn to traditional hedge witchery, herb craft, and the Green Path, to not seek these herbs and their wisdom leaves a void in our practice… maybe in our very energy, our ability to heal, and the possibility to communicate with the spiritual Green. The symbolism and spiritual power of these plants is derived from humanity’s oldest consciousness and relationship with our environment. Before grocery stores, before even farms, we foraged ALL of our medicines and food from the Earth. The loss of this relationship and level of knowing pains many of us. - Grim Rowntree
