Re: Money Lamp Oil: Fumes are Strong

Unread post by CopperFox » Mon Dec 07, 2009 9:01 pm

The lamp is fixed with certain mineral and herbal curios so you probably couldn't clean it out completely, so definitely make sure there's no issue adding in the other fuel. I've also heard of folks burning olive oil in lamps; I've never tried it, but imagine the odor would be fairly pleasant.

If you do switch out the fuel, please fill us in on your results. I love the look/idea of the lamps but have avoided them thus far for the very reason you and others have mentioned with the fumes being objectionable. I have some antique oil lamps that belonged to my grandmother and your post makes me think I'd like to put together some herbs and curios from LM and give one a try myself. Can you identify some of the items used in the lamp? I'm guessing lodestone and pyrite, probably some piceces of High John...some silver coins would be a neat addition, too. I'm a big fan of bayberry, sassafras and cinnamon for money work and could see adding these in as well. And, ooh, fenungreek seeds! Mandrake! (I'm giddy with the possibilities!) Your post has really inspired me to make my own lamp in the hoodoo tradition!

Good luck with your lamp and thanks for sharing!

To mark676 -- the lamp MightyAphrodite is referring to can be purchased from Lucky Mojo. Hers sounds like it may have been custom made. I think they sell them fixed (ready to use) or just the lamp itself for you to prepare. You could make your own using the appropriate herbs, roots and curios for your intent. Welcome to the forum!

Re: Oil Lamps burning at wildly different rates...

Thanks MotherMystic. I have been cleaning my home regularly with Chinese Wash and (to address some current conditions) a few drops of Van Van oil, but haven't been taking spiritual baths. I will see how adding them helps my lamp work.
Anyone have suggestions for re-lighting a lamp that has gone out on it's own? Should I simply re-fill, focus my intent and pray over the lamp, light it and go about my business? Should I be lighting incense or a candle at this time or is there a psalms appropriate to say to re- "set" my lamp?
@ theusurper- I think the same things that go for candle safety apply towards lamps. I can't see why putting them in your tub to leave the house is a problem. Far better than a fire! ;)
Thanks.
Thank you Saint Martha for hearing my petition and for your ongoing good works for myself and others.

How about trimming the wick on the lamp? Sometimes this needs to be done as all wicks aren't created equal unfortunately and if it continues to go out on its own, I would trim it down a bit, same as a candle wick. As for putting it in the bathtub, this depends on what kind of tub you have - do you have an old fashioned porcelain tub or a fiberglass tub? Fiberglass isn't fireproof. If you're concerned about safety when you aren't home, surround your candles and lamps with colored sand (easily obtainable at most craft stores). Unless you have cats to worry about, this should stabilize your lamps/candles and the color of the sand will enhance your work. I have cats but I keep my lamps in a room with the door closed so they can't get in when I'm not there.

What Psalm you choose to say when you light your lamp is dependent on the type of work you are doing. I recommend you consult "Secrets of the Psalms" by Godfrey Selig http://www.luckymojo.com/secretspsalms.html

Re: Money Lamp Oil: Fumes are Strong

Thanks for the tip about the Amish lamp oil company, Copperfox!

To clarify, my particular lamp was made by Charles Porterfield, who taught a class on how to make them at a Lucky Mojo workshop this past May. I didn't attend that workshop, but I went to Cat's tasseomancy class (tea leaf reading) and Starr's money conjure workshop. Guess that worked, because I bought a raffle ticket afterwards and won a gorgeous mason jar type money lamp. I rarely win anything, so it was a real surprise and delight.

Since I missed the class, I don't know all that's in it, but there's a visible hunk of pyrite, devils shoestrings, coins, herbs, and money oils on there. A rabbits foot and iching coin on the outside.

Enough kerosene was used up that it wouldn't wick up well, so I added some of the Ultra pure oil. Nothing bad has happened from mixing the two. I can't yet tell if it's any better on fumes though, either. The glass chimney still gets black. Perhaps over time, as I only add cleaner burning oil, it will improve.

I've heard of olive oil for lamps too, but don't think I'd do that for a large money lamp. Olive oil goes rancid. Given that you never fully empty/clean the money lamp, vegetable oils would surely turn foul.

Broke My Money Lamp

Unread post by cabriellenil » Tue Dec 22, 2009 8:53 pm

Hello all

Dear oh dear I just broke the glass chimney of my first ever money lamp. Would really appreciate it if some of you can share your insights.

If you were me, would you replace the chimney or would you start a new lamp altogether? (if you decided to do one)

If I were to start a new one - I don't have pyrite at home at the moment. Would you wait till you got another one, or would you do a new one now? I have all the other herbs and lodestone.

What other actions would you take?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Breaking the chimney of a lamp is not the same as breaking the lamp.

Replacing a lamp due to breaking the chimney seems like overkill, but doing so depends on how much time/energy/money you put into making that lamp. I remember when I made mine (which are now lost from our move - grr) I invested a nice chunk of change in getting lamps that really resonated with me aesthetically.

You can easily replace the chimney, so just do that. I would think it would be ok to add pyrite when you get some. Obviously just re-pray over everything.

Another Oil Lamp Question

Unread post by Shery » Sun Jan 10, 2010 5:15 pm

Hello dear Hoodooers and Happy New Year!
Here I go again with one more question about oil lamps...I'm sorry for this, :oops: but I'm a little un-clear about the oil that goes inside the storage part of the lamp. I've tried putting Olive oil alone just because of the charms, herbs, and petitions which go inside (lamp did not lit w/ just the oil alone) and I feel that the liquid bought at the store smells too strong like kerosene and maybe damage the herbs? also what if oil is add to it: wouldn't make it smell even worse? Especially with the LM oils which bring pieces of herbs inside the oil bottle for more power? what you all think? I just heard so much talk of how great oil lamps are and would like to try working w/them :oops: Thank you,
Shery

There are different kinds of oil that you can buy for the lamps. Some of the newer oils do not smell as strongly. This IS the kind of oil that you use in these lamps.

Regular oil hurricane lamps will NOT run on olive oil, you need a special lamp for that and they tend to be very small - not really all that appropriate for a working lamp.

You just put whatever curios you wish into the reservoir. If you want to use herbs, you can put them into a cloth tea-bag of cheesecloth (I've also heard to use pantyhose, too, so that's an option, though nylon is synthetic) so that they do not cause any problems inside the lamp, but still add their effect to the oil.

Updating my thread in case it helps someone else...
It was time to refill my money lamp today, so I added more Ultra Pure lamp oil. (There was about 2 inches of the old oil left and the wick was barely touching it.) After refilling, I lit it and TA-DA! no fumes! It's been burning all afternoon in my office, with the windows closed, too. Problem solved! Ultra Pure is the way to go and there weren't any complications from mixing it in with the kerosene.

Quick Help Lamps

Unread post by Shery » Wed Jan 20, 2010 9:31 pm

Hello My dear Hoodooers:
If anyone would like to know how to make the fuel for "Magic Lamps" here it is.
The basic fuel used in making this Magick Lamps is a blend of Castor Oil, Olive Oil and Kerosene.
Here you will use Two thirds Kerosene to One Third Oil Mixture,to this basic fuel mixture is added other ingredients which are analogous to the work being done.(this formula is from the Book of Ray Malbrough). Magick lamps are made for many purposes.

The type of lamp used to make these magick lamps is the hurricane or Kerosene lamp.
I made a Quick Help Lamp for Saint Expedite, because the Candle I was using burned within 4 days and didn't have another red candle to continue the 7 days ritual...so I made a Quick Help Lamp, and OMG it worked like that!... and very quickly. My request has been Granted. Later-on I'll tell you guys how Saint Expedite responded to my plead. :D

Thank You so much Saint Expedite! You are the Greatest and Fastest to anybody Wishes, Thank you, Thank you,

using lamps instead of candles

Unread post by zee » Tue Jan 26, 2010 5:58 am

I found amoney drawing spell by Dr Kioni where he uses the green pyramid eye candle, and much else besides...some of the herbs and other things are loaded on the candle and other stuff is deployed around the candle as it burns...i was wondering if it was ok to replace the green candle with a green lamp, or a green colored oil to which the right condition oils were added
Reason i ask this is I dont want my family asking why i am burning a strange looking candle in this manner...using a lamp i can do it more unobtrusively..i was just wondering if it was ok...has anyone tried this spell and also what results have you got from it..(you can PM if you prefer.)

I haven't used that spell, but if you fixed a lamp with all the herbs and oils and then burned it, it would have the same effect as a candle. You will need to fix that lamp though, just like you would have to fix the candle.

You place your curios in the well - pray over them. You don't add more than a couple of drops of condition oil - dressing your curios can be part of that; then when you refill the oil, just add 1 or 2 more drops. Pray over it.

It's perfectly safe. Some people prefer to use UltraPure oil instead of kerosene so they can eliminate fumes.

I did that spell form Dr. Kioni and it worked really well for me. I used a green pillar instead of a green pyramid. I don't think I would substitute a lamp in that specific spell, but LM does sell the most adorable little lamps and I believe they can fix them for you. I've been eyeing them for a while now :)

Ritual Lamps

Unread post by frazierwood » Wed Feb 24, 2010 7:01 am

Hi everyone,
I am in the process of ordering some stuff from LM but want to know before I order if LM has the Lamps to burn in lieu of candles. The reason for this is, so much activity goes through my room that I don't want anyone to know what I'm into. I burn candles all the time and don't put them out; so to have a lantern burning will not attract the notice that a candle would. I could have sworn I've seen the lanterns and thought I ordered one with my last purchase but when the supplies came ( very fast, I would like to add), there was a candle instead of the lantern.

Is there lanterns for sale and if so, what page can I find them?

Thanks in advance,

If you go down to a hardware store and ask for lamp wicks they can hook you up, usually.

Those mini-wicks for the tiny lamps are hard to find. We don't sell replacements. You could try a hardware store or cotton string. I'd like to know how that works, if you do try it.

We sell the mini-lamps and give them away at workshops, for those who wish to experiment, but for real, actual oil lamp work, we sell a standard 12-inch tall oil lamp:

Raw hemp string that has been treated with a small amount of beeswax may work. It would be tough enough to not burn up and the slight waxed surface keeps it firm and not soggy to the point of falling apart. I am not sure if it would be too quick to burn/have too large of a flame...

Please let us know what you find out, Snake...

Green oil lamp

Unread post by N1reht » Tue Jun 08, 2010 9:12 am

I'm thinking of buying a green oil lamp. The LM website lists it as being fixed for Money Drawing. Can I specify for it to be either unfixed or fixed for Fast Luck in regard to money? And can an oil lamp fixed for Fast Luck be used on a continual basis, or is the whole idea of Fast Luck something that is done only once in a while?

The reason being is I would like to have more luck on my side for playing the lottery (but having money luck in general would be nice). An oil lamp sounds good to have going on a long-term basis after performing my own seven day Fast Luck spell first.

If I buy it unfixed, I plan on adding a couple of drops (maybe more?) of Fast Luck oil to the kerosene and dropping a piece of pyrite and some dimes in it. Would/should I drop anything else into it besides those? Perhaps certain herbs, roots, minerals, or zoological curios?

Any hints or tips would be most welcome!

Thanks a bunch!

For your purposes, I would get the Money-Drawing lamp, and then when you know you'll need an extra boost of luck, burn a Fast Luck candle on your petition, or do some other Fast Luck work. But the Money-Drawing lamp will keep you predisposed to bringing in extra money, which is a good foundation from which to play.

Um... There not going to burn if you put them in the oil reservoir, barring something going terrible wrong fire never actually makes it into the oil reservoir, the oil is drawn up to the flame through the wick. So herbs are fine.

I recently read a few articles about home made lamps , composed of ceramic bowls and fueled by sunflower oil (further dressed with condition oils) as opposed to kerosene . They had hand made wicks, composed of pure cotton or other natural fibers. The primary objective was to provide the practitioner with an alter piece for burning rites that not only hold more ingredients but have customized containers specific to the work (fancy china for money work, copper for love remedies, rusty cans for hot foot or hexing etc) . Burning times range from several hours to several weeks, depending on ritually timed additions of fuel and recitation of prayers.

Has anyone engaged this method of lamp magic indoors? The only reservation I have is having a fairly open container of fuel inside my home..

Any thoughts on this?

One Lamp, One Goal, Multiple Targets?

Unread post by Scratchmade Sweets » Fri Feb 04, 2011 9:11 pm

Hi there,

I am continuously approaching business to sell my products and partnerships. I know that I can use one lamp with the same main purpose, persuade them to sale my goods, but how do I go about adding the various businesses to the lamp?

On a prior post Miss Bri stated that when she works on behalf of clients that she, QUOTE: "My permanent petition is inside of the lamp and then the petitions for everyone else sit under the lamp.".

I assume I would do it almost the same way except the "client" would be businesses? Can't I tie tags onto the lamp with my petition for each business?

Thanks

So you can make a general attraction candle, or whatever candles you are using, and then you are going to put make a petition for each business to buy your goods So something like "Business A to buy my goods" "Business B to enter into a partnership with me to purchase my goods" and so on. I like to write my petitions for each business or person on a different petition paper so that way once one business has bought your products the petition can be removed if you choose to do so.

Yes, you can make a "general purpose" prosperity lamp with a nice petition for all kinds of success -- and why not write it on a dollar bill -- or a twenty, if you can spare it? You might want a little lodestone and a bit of pyrite in there, too. And some green lamp oil, or you can go to the craft store and get some paint suitable for use on glass, and paint your lamp.

You could really go to town on this project. I'm tempted now to make one myself! :)

That sounds pretty close to the Prosperous Home lamp my wife and I made. Good luck in lighting it and please do keep us updated on it's continued use!

purchase of oil lamps?

Unread post by hoodooTom » Fri Feb 18, 2011 10:34 am

Does anyone know if LM sells oil lamps and where on the site you can find them?
I've been looking at flea markets and stuff in my area and I even tried a couple old hardware stores and no luck.

Thanks in advance

Those that LM sells is offcourse miniature lamps and as far as I know they don't sell full size lamps.
I believe Prof. C.D. Porterfield in AIRR offer fixed lamps. Otherwise consider buying them new from an online lamp store and fixing them yourself.

I am going to be using an oil lamp to petition St. Martha. Does it help for me to use a picture of the person that I am targeting, or is it unnecessary? If so, where do I place the picture?
Thank You Saint Martha for all that you've done and continue to do for me!!!!
