Now here are two recipes of mine, that could come handy to You , particularly now that we are all low on money and we have many situations in which we need a touch of luck and success

Gambler’s lucky hands potion

Half fill small jar with Hoyt’c Cologne and half with Consecrated water
Add one High John’s root, Teaspoon of Chamomile ,Teaspoon of Calendula
Few Laurel leaves ,Few Frankincense grain ,Some pyrite chips or a lode stone
Close tight and shake few times . Recite each day 23rd Psalm over the Jar shaking it lightly . On the night of the Full Moon strain and anoint Your hands prior to gamble or lottery tickets .

Crown of Success oil

Bergamot oil 7 drops
Three Bay leafs
Cinquefoil plant with 5 leaves
7 frankincense grains
some Sandalwood chips
Solomon seal root ( optional but gives a great boost )
High John TC root in each bottle
pyrite chips in each bottle
You may add few Sandalwood essential oil drops

Combine all in 2oz's of base oil , in ideal situation You would use Jojoba and Sunflower equal blend but You can use Sunflower oil or even almond.

Any decent recipes for Hoyt's water/cologne? I've already made both Florida Water & Kananga water from scratch as i've got a huge amount of oils, absolutes, CO2s and alcohol at my disposal but the one I really want is Hoyt's. Any suggestions? Please?
