Road Opening Oil (Abre Camino)
ROAD OPENING is a powerful oil used to "open the way" between you and your goals. This is the oil to use when you feel stuck, blocked, or hemmed in by circumstance - when you're ready to move forward, but there's something in your way. ROAD OPENING clears away blockages and by doing so, opens the way for new opportunities. The base oil is formulated for personal power and energy, with a cleansing element. The most important ingredient in this oil is the solid herb, Abre Camino (Koanophyllon villosum). "Abre Camino" is literally translated as "open roads" or "road opener." While the base oil is useful, the true power in this oil comes from the solid ingredients. As with most of our oils, ROAD OPENING can be used in a variety of ways. Some will be discussed on this page, but the uses of this oil are only restricted to your imagination.
This mixture contains essential oil of lemon, which is a skin irritant. Please do a patch test on the inside of your wrist or elbow 24 hours before you use this oil anywhere on your skin. Be careful not to touch your face, mouth, eyes, or other mucous membranes after handling this oil, even when diluted. The carrier oil for all our products is almond oil, which is a tree nut oil.
Suggested Use: Unlike many of the other oils that we produce, ROAD OPENING works best when it’s used in work that isn’t too specific. The intention is to achieve your goals, to remove whatever is standing between you and what you want. If the intent is too specific, only that particular obstacle will be removed. Your intention, in using this oil, is for ALL obstacles to be removed.
If you do choose to use a candle to work with ROAD OPENING, a white candle is usually the best color. Rather than carving a petition or statement of intent into the candle, carve your name. Anoint the candle from base to tip, holding the tip of the candle towards you and the base away from you. You can either burn the candle all in one go, or mark the candle into equal sections and burn part of it each night. You can start the candle on any night, but you’ll probably have the best results if you use this oil during the waxing moon. Always snuff or pinch out the candle flame, never blow it out. When the candle is burned as far as it can safely go, run the wick under water to prevent re-lighting. Wrap the candle stub in cloth and bury it respectfully. This is one oil where actually burying the anointed candle stub underneath or near a crossroads would be beneficial.
Other Uses: Put a few drops of the oil into the water you use to wash your floors, or anything else that can safely be washed with soap and water. If a patch test shows no adverse reaction at the current dilution, ROAD OPENING can be used to anoint yourself - a small amount rubbed between the palms before you start your day can have a beneficial effect on whatever obstacles you encounter. If your skin is sensitive, rubbing a few drops on your belt or shoes can have the same effect. A few drops - drops, not a quarter of the bottle, or even an eighth of the bottle - can be used in a ritual bath.
