I uploaded a video last night on this topic so follow the link and smile =] Etruscan Oil
You will need:
- Bowl, preferably glass so you can see all the way through.
- Oil – any oil, but standard cooking oils are great as they haven’t been mixed.
- Salt, for purification and protection.
How to perform:
2 droplets for matters of the heart
3 droplets for business (3 is the magic number – on the western side, 8 in the eastern)
4 droplets for matters of farming/home/fertility
If the oil stays together, in one blob, then that was a positive outcome.
If the oil separates and stays that way, it was considered to be a negative outcome. This is where the salt comes in. (Pay the priest a little more…) the salt would be pinched and dropped in, either once, or to the number according to the matter asked. If the salt doesn’t affect the salt you would read the oil with its original negative outlook. If the salt makes the oil form together, you have hope or a more positive outlook once the negative flow has passed. If the salt turns the colour of the oil to white, you await disaster. – To the point huh?
Anyhoo, enjoy =]
