The Oil for the Lamp

So I have figured out how to make it, and I have chosen the way it will look.
I will wait till Mercury is out of retrograde, and I will commence its final construction the day and hour of mercury according to the arts of solomon.

As for the oil..I am going to steep various resins, that one may typically find in the traditional Abramelin's incense recipe, into the oil that will be used in the lamp. I am hoping that the resins will lend their fragrant essences through diffusion into the oil.

Olibanum (boswellia serrata) from India
Storax (liquidambar orientalis) from Turkey
Aloeswood (aquilaria agallocha) from South Asia
