Now onto the fun part - using oils with your cards!

I have done just this for years! I don't really bother with correspondences etc anymore as far as matching magical qualities with the deck for ritualistic purposes, I just use what I love the smell of.

I have always just rubbed a small amount of my chosen oil into the fabric of the scarf or bag which I keep the deck in, and then kind of scrunched the fabric all around to infuse it throughout. Works well for me and I've not had any damage to cards.

However...

Only a drop is all you need. Let it air out so the oil evaporates before putting it near your deck, and be careful with sticky, dark viscous oils such as patchouli and vetiver etc.

My favourite blend is a mix of Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Orange. Divine!

Have fun!
