Use this oil to hold onto a person who is planning on leaving. This ritual will often hold the person, preventing their planned departure.
Acquire a piece of clothing which has been worn by your target but not yet washed. If such is not available, a piece of jewelry, a dish, book, or any item that has been touched or used by the departing party is appropriate. Sprinkle the chosen item with the oil, place it in a box or container, and seal the package securely. Place the charm in a secret place where no one else will handle it. Take it out every third day and reanoint it, but do not unseal it.
