To Make Anointing Ointment
Take a glazed pan half full of grease or olive oil. Put in sweet mint
leaves bruised. Place pan in hot water bath. Stir occasionally. After
four or five hours pour into linen bag and squeeze grease through into
pot again and fill with fresh leaves. Repeat until grease is strongly
scented. Do same with marjoram, thyme and pounded dried patchouli
leaves, an you may have them (for they be best of all). When strongly
scented, mix all the greases together and keep in a well-stoppered jar.
Anoint behind ears, throat, breasts and womb. In rites where "Blessed
be ..." may be said, anoint knees and feet, as also for rites connected
with journeys or war.
