Temple Pathways Scribal Ink

י"א באלול תשס"ז

My new original recipe for Temple Pathways scribal ink, to be used for writing in my Book of Shadows (Sefer Tzelem):

1 small vial archival black India ink (or handmade alternative)
bit of lampblack handgathered from my own beeswax candle flame
1 drop mugwort oil
1 drop frankincense oil
1 drop myrrh oil
1 drop dragon's blood oil
1 drop cinnamon bark oil
1 drop of pomegranate juice
1 drop Kabbalistic Name Incense infusion
1 small chunk undissolved Kabbalistic Name Incense
1 small unground piece of gall nut (the happiness nut)
gum arabic to thicken as needed

The vial of prepared ink will be stored in this Temple pathways knotwork container.
