The origin of Abramelin Oil can be traced all the way back to the Biblical Book of Exodus and its description of the Holy Oil of Tanakh, yet its history has been fraught with misunderstanding.
"Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred [shekels], and of sweet cinnamon half so much, [even] two hundred and fifty [shekels], and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty [shekels], and of cassia five hundred [shekels], after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin: And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compounded after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil."
- Exodus 30:22-33
The modern name of "Abramelin Oil" refers to a 15th Century grimoire titled, "The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage" by Abraham von Worms, a medieval Kabbalist.
The confusion surrounding Abramelin oil stems from translation issues in French, German, and Aramaic manuscripts, but the most glaring mistake was S.L. MacGregor Mathers' 19th Century translation from an incommplete French Translation. Mathers translated the French "Calame" as "Galangal" (also known as Chewing John Root), when it should have been "Calamus". There have been Abramelin Oil variations created based on Mathers' mistake, most notably Aleister Crowley's skin burning formula.
