The Spiritual Use of Road Opener Oil

I’ll open with a quote from — Quadrivium Supplies, by the way, makes my personal favorite Road Opener AKA Road Opening oil. (I hope they take my quote-theft as an advertisement, by the way, which is really what it is — I love their stuff.)

Road Opening is a powerful oil used to “open the way” between you and your goals. This is the oil to use when you feel stuck, blocked, or hemmed in by circumstance – when you’re ready to move forward, but there’s something in your way. Road Opening clears away blockages and by doing so, opens the way for new opportunities.

The “goals” and “blockages” and “new opportunities” that the quote above from Quadrivium Supplies mentions are, as far as I can tell, usually interpreted as meaning as material goals, blockages, and new opportunities. For example, say you’re stuck in a crummy job — you might apply a dab of Road Opener oil to the palms of your hands in the morning, rub it in good, and as they say go pound the pavement looking for a new and better job. Or, more generally, maybe you just feel that your life is in a rut. Road Opener oil can help you get out of that rut and improve your lot. —And an added prayer to a road opening Deity or Spirit or one of magic or witchcraft only helps empower the oil’s ingredients. Ganesha, Hermes, and Papa Legba come immediately to mind. Hekate is also known as Einodia — Goddess of all roads — so She’s another good choice. Or if you’re a Christian just pray to God or Jesus or the Blessed Virgin. You can also pray non-theistically — praying to the Universe itself is one way to do this.

But the mere mention of how prayer can further empower such a simple magic immediately brings an additional spiritual aspect to Road Opening. And adding the power of the spiritual realm to that of the material realm of the oil’s ingredients not only further empowers the magic but, to my mind, also brings up the question Why not use Road Opener oil to help you access the spiritual realm, or a particular Deity or Spirit, or to help you achieve your spiritual goals?

And in my experience it works really great for such purposes. For example I’ve personally found that Road Opener works better for me as a preparation for divination than what folks normally use — mugwort, star anise, inter alia.

Maybe it’s just me. But maybe it’s worth a try in your own practice as well.

Also during those times when it feels as if you’re praying to a blank wall or as if your Patron Deity has just up and gone, then Road Opener is a good choice. This leads me to believe that generally speaking there is a spiritual blockage within me at such times, and that the Gods are just fine, thank you very much.

Road Opener also helps me access the astral plane, which is something I’ve had a lot of difficulty with since beginning my transition. So whether you’re into astral projection, crossing the hedge, active imagination, waking dream, or consulting your inner guides, Road Opener may be a potential go to if you’re having difficulties.

I’m sure these three examples are enough to get your imagination working on how you yourself might give the spiritual use of Road Opener a try. Just one caveat:

I’m speaking solely out of my own experiences here. It works for me, but no promises. —That said, I think it’s worth your experimenting with. I wouldn’t be writing about it otherwise, now would I…

May your magic be strong.

    Good post! 🙂

    One chant that I used in my own Road Opener workings, and is admittedly of a more Christian bent, was one I put together from several Psalms (16:11, 119:35, 119:105, and 25:4 respectively):

    “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore; Make me to go in the path of thy commandments, for therein do I delight; Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path; Show me thy ways; teach me thy paths.”

      Thank you, Ocean. I have nothing at all against a bit of good old-fashioned Psalm magic. I will give your chant a try. Thanks so much!

      Love, Rachel

    Funny, I’ve had Road Opener on the brain. That’s interesting about internal blocks. I wouldn’t have thought to use the formula in that manner, so thanks for the tip! 🙂

      Road Opener is great stuff. I also like Red Fast Luck oil. But Road Opener combined with a focused intention and maybe a prayer to a Road Opening Deity too can be very powerful. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!

      Much love, Rachel

    My name is also Rachel! I like your blog! I just bought some Road Opener oil last night in Oakland at the Sacred Well.

    I’ve never used anything like this before, and I want to utilize it well. It’s been as if I have been a car stuck in the mud for several years now and I’m ready to get out.

    Would applying the oil to my hands be the best way? I thought it was meant to be used as a perfume so I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks!

      Rachel — Applying Road Opening Oil to your hands is a great idea. You might also want to investigate the Hindu God Ganesha, who is the Road Opener par excellence. A few thousand repetitions of the Ganesha mantra and Road Opening Oil on your hands should get you out of your rut. See YouTube for the Ganesha mantra. I could not teach you how to pronounce it correctly in this venue. Ganesha is fortunately a very human friendly deity and will help you once you prove your trust in him. I know that you may not be inclined to do this but I swear it will work if you put your heart and soul into it. Ganesha doesn’t care what religion you are, or if you adhere to no religion at all.

      There are other road opening spirits out there but most require initiation to work with. Working with Ganesha will greatly empower your Road Opening magic. Best of luck to you.
