It’s called Flying Devil Oil because when you shake it, all the red spices swirling around look like Satan in flight. Store in a dark place and shake daily for two weeks. Anoint a poppet of your nemesis or the stranger that cut you off, maybe the bitch who tried it in line at the store or an abusive ex. Think about the devil, flying in their ribcage like a pinball machine. What do they feel? Can they feel your pain? Are you turning them away or turning them in to the devil? Let them smell sulphur wherever they go, be their reminder of a cyclical universe. Sprinkle it where they walk or dress a red candle with it and concentrate on your intentions.
