It seems MC and I are trying out some of the same products from Ancient Roads.
I just received my first package from them a couple days ago and I have to say that I am VERY impressed. They offer some of the best quality Hoodoo stuff AND Ceremonial/Church supplies I have seen.
Like Mike, I have been using their German Abramelin Oil. This is excellent stuff. A friend mixed up a batch after the Dehn translation was published and this is better. Because steam distillation was not invented at the time the recipe was written, Ancient Roads uses hot maceration for their formula. If you are used to the Crowley stuff with essential oil, this will seem very mild by comparison as far as smell. Real Abramelin doesn’t burn, and is meant to be applied to the eye lids in some situations – something you could never do with Crowley’s.
I have been using it every morning for three days, along with the Sangreal Anointing Prayer and I can tell you that the spiritual response is sublime.
I should add that they also have Crowley’s AND Mather’s formulas available for purchase.
I have also been using their High Church Incense to accompany my daily performance of the Descent of Divinity. This is from a Spanish Catholic Church recipe from the 16th century and provides a VERY friendly environment for Angelic Beings to manifest within.
Finally I have their Money Drawing and Lucky Business condition oils. I initiated a working this morning at the hour of Jupiter, and have received a sign of it working as of 1pm today. There is a generous helping of herbs in the condition oils, which is always a good sign. In fact at the money drawing bottle is at least a quarter of the way full with herbs.
Apart from all that, the presentation is awesome. The oil bottles are high quality and the incense comes in a nice jar with a cork. Considering that the prices are well within line of other suppliers, I will be buying from them again very soon.
