Preface:

"The Ancient Book of Formulas," an out of print, public
domain magical formulary, was posted to usenet in 1999 by
Laurie Brandt (brandtfamily@sprintmail.com), for which many
people will be very grateful.

The edition of "The Ancient Book of Formulas" which Laurie
scanned is a reprint by Dorene Publishing (of Texas), of a
book which had originaly been published by Oracle Products
Corporation (New York) in 1940 and then and by Dorene
Publishing (New York). The original edition and some of the
earlier reprints have the Oracle Products Corporation
monogram (OPC) on the back cover, even after OPC was no
longer the publisher. Laurie's copy was missing two pages,
but since she had done so much work in scanning and posting
already, i added those two pages from my own copy.

"The Ancient Book of Formulas" is a workbook for customers
who were at the time of original publication able to buy the
named Compounds and Bouquets (Stock Oil Blends) from the OPC
and use them to make up their own dressing oils, incense,
and so forth at home. This method of marketing blends of
essential oils was apparently not succesful, for the OPC
went out of business sometime during WW II. The proportions
and subsidiary ingredients and colouring agents given in the
recipes are great -- but you still need formulas of your own
for the Compounds and Bouquets.

The uncredited author of "The Ancient Book of Formulas" was
the same man who wrote several other books under the names
Louis de Claremont and Lewis de Claremont, most notably,
"Legends of Incense, Herb, and Oil Magic," which was first
published by OPC in 1936, then by Dorene in a revised
edition in 1938, further revised in 1966. If you've read
"Legends," you will find in it references to "The Ancient
Book of Formulas." There was also a third companion volume
in this series, "The Ancient Book of Magic," also by the
pseudonymous Mr. de Claremont. Two other texts by the same
author are "Seven Steps to Power" and "Seven Keys to Power."

Although de Claremont's other titles have been mostly kept
in print, "The Ancient Book of Formulas" went out of print
long ago due to the frustrating lack of availablity of the
OPC compounds needed to actually complete the formulas it
only describes in part. Used copies sell for between $15.00
and $25.00 in the o.p. book market, depending on condition
and edition. Because the copyright was never renewed, the
work is now in the Public Domain.

If you wish to acquire a specific recipe for a stock
oil ("Compound") named in this book, first check in
the Lucky Mojo Esoteric Archive page called
Recipes for Magical Potions used in Spell-Casting;
if the formula you want is not there, try asking for it by
name (in the subject line) in the usenet newsgroups
alt.lucky.w
and
alt.paranormal.spells.hexes.magic

Good Luck,

PREFACE

It is the purpose of the present volume to endeavor to meet
a need which has existed many years for a complete formula
book covering the Occult and Mystic Sciences and the various
products included herein. It is the belief of the author
that this is the first American book in this highly
interesting and evermore popular field. It has been his
earnest objective to include not only the most genuinely
accepted formulas for the various products but to include as
many products as research would permit. Consequently it is
his belief that is the most complete and authentic book of
its nature ever published in the English language. As a
Special Feature for the benefit of readers who may find it
difficult to obtain some of the rare and imported items in
their local neighborhoods, we have arranged with a group of
New York Manufacturing Chemists to carry in stock a complete
line of all the items mentioned in the volume and to sell
them in small or large quantities to suit the convenience of
the readers of this book. Consequently if you need any of
the items herein and want to save yourself the bother of
trying to purchase in many places, materials which have been
collected from all parts of the world, just write.

INCENSES

Man's first idea of perfume started with incense, and was
accidentally discovered centuries ago when man in gathering
wood to use in his burnt offerings found that some bushes or
woods gave-off a pleasant odor when burning. Of these he
discovered Frankincense and Myrrh and Benzoin which exists
as gums or sap in trees, and in Sandalwood, Cinnamon and
Patchouli. In order to be easier understood, it might be
well to try to classify the Incenses according to their
ingredients and in their particular services in which they
are used.

CHINESE INCENSE

Chinese Incense always contains as a base Patchouli Leaves
or Root with a possibility of Cinnamon being added, and in
some incidents, it is used with Pig Dung. This is used
sometimes in the Temples on some religious ceremonies. Other
spices may be added. In the Lama Temples of Tibet, they
generally burn just butter.

INDIA INCENSE

All India or Hindu Incenses contain Sandalwood as a base,
and they together with any Spice, particu-

10

-----

larly Cinnamon, is
burned in the Temples. However, some of the Hindu Incenses
are made more aromatic with the addition of essential oils
or perfume bases.

EGYPTIAN INCENSE

Most Egyptian Incense is the burning of plain Symtra
Benzoin, however, this may be mixed with a little
Frankincense and Myrrh as a variation.

PERSIAN INCENSE

Persian Incense is a combination using Sandalwood and a
Spice, mainly Cinnamon, together with Benzoin or
Frankincense and Myrrh.

ECCLESIASTICAL INCENSE

That used by the Catholic Church is Frankincense, however,
it must be burned with Charcoal. The Catholic Church have
rigid specifications as to the Incenses used in its Church.
No aromatic or synthetics may be used. There are occasions
when some churches will use an Incense containing other
ingredients than plain Frankincense. As an example, an
addition of a little Myrrh and Benzoin, Sandalwood or
Cinnamon.

11
-----

EUROPEAN INCENSE

European Incenses aromatic or household Incense, which is
generally made with Charcoal, Sandalwood, Patchouli,
Cinnamon, Benzoin, and varied with perfume oil compounds
either in floral odors or a bouquet.

OCCULT INCENSE

Occult Incenses are used to create a higher vibration
according to the specific work involved, and they comprise
mixtures of all materials used in Incenses with the addition
of essential and aromatic oils as desired. The field is so
large, that it would take a book in itself to make proper
reference; however, the Incense formulas following in this
chapter will give fairly good idea.. as to how the materials
are suggested. The following formulas are suggested as those
found in many of the occult books together with some of the
more modern versions. The names used are only to designate
those names which are recognizable from some of the books.
In order to make an Incense practical and burnable, the
suggestion is made to use Bamba Wood base, which is
manufactured especially for this use, and made in one
hundred mesh finess.

*These names are used only as a reminder for those used in the well
known Occult Books.

SACHET POWDERS

BASES -- Pure grade Talcum being a mineral product will not
absorb perfume or essential Oils, there fore as a medium of
absorption -- use about 10'% Red wood or Bamba Wood Base,
Sandalwood or Orris Roots. Incorporate the Essential Oils
into absorption medium first and then mix the entire mass
into the talcum, add color last, -- a little at a time until
color or shade suits your taste.

Other Sachets can be made solely with Orris Root,
Sandalwood, or a combination of several of the aromatic
Woods. Tinctures of Peru, Tolu, and Benzoin are used as
blenders.

OCCULT INKS

1. Invisible ink is made from a solution of 5% Cobalt,
Chloride and 95% distilled water which can be purchased from
any drug store. Use a clean pen to write with, and when the
ink dries, same is colorless. However, when placing paper
over heat, invisible writing will develop out blue.

2. Invisible Ink. This ink is used in two parts, the first
part being the ink and the second part being the developer.
Use 5% solution Ferrous Ammonium Sulfate and ~5% distilled
water as ink. To develop same it will require a 5% solution
of Tannic Acid in 95% distilled water. After the writing is
dry with the Ferrous Ammonium Sulfate Ink, a little of the
developer is gently rubbed over space on the paper where the
Invisible Ink had been used and same will develop out Brown.
Both items can be purchased from your local Druggist.

Since Tannic Acid is also soluble in perfume, it is very
easy to make up your 5% solution with Tannic Acid and 95%
perfume and use that solution as a developer.

All perfumes contain alcohol to varying degrees. Most
important perfumes contain 2 to 3 ounces of oils per pint of
alcohol. Most domestic perfumes contain 1 to 3 ounces of
oils per pint of alcohol.

However the amounts of essential oil or concentration is
determined solely by taste and price.

Toilet waters are just weak perfumes, generally containing 1
to 6 ounces of essential oil per gallon of alcohol. However
10 to 25% water is usually added according to the amount of
essential oils contained therein.

Generally, manufacturers of spiritual supplies will use one
stock oil for an entire family of formulas -- Incense, Oil,
and Sachet Powder. There are a few instances in "The Ancient
Book of Formulas" where a family of formulas is split among
two or more Compound numbers. Also, there are a few Compound
numbers that have too many different families of products
listed under them to make sense. Note also that several
numbers were skipped by the author in his sequence of
numeration. I believe some of these irregularities were
caused by typographical errors, and i have suggested
alternatives.

If a spiritual supply company is owned and operated by
root-workers, their Stock Oils will be blended from natural
botanical essential oils selected from among the many herbs
and roots which have long-established magical reputations.
If the manufacturers are merely fragrance chemists, their
Stock Oils may be blended from syntehtic fragrances or an
economical mix of natural and synthetic ingredients.

In addition to its recipes for spiritual supplies, "The
Ancient Book of Formulas" contains numerous recipes for
synthetic perfumes and cosmetics, which can have had little
or no magical value to a root worker. Whether the Stock Oils
for this company's magical formulas were purely botanical is
unknown.

Although we may never know what botanical or synthetic oils
were used as the basis for the Compounds listed below, i can
make a clear guess about *one* particular Compound --
Bouquet X 136, listed as an ingredient in Van Van Oil and
also Hindu Grass Oil. The latter name indicates to me that
this company's Van Van formula conformed to the standard
concept of Van Van as a blend of Lemongrass, Citronella,
Palmarosa, Vetivert (Khus Khus), and Gingergrass Oils -- all
known in the trade as Asian or Indian Grasses.
