Controlling Oil is similar in intention and use as Commanding & Compelling Oil, only different ingredients. Use it when you need to persuade (strongly) and control another person's thoughts or actions. For example, when you want or need someone to do something in particular, or come around to your way of thinking, whether it is a positive thing such as paying you the money they owe you or if you need to use it negatively in enemy spellwork such as breakup and divorce spells. This would be excellent to use along with other formulas to complement and enhance each others' energies, such as Domination Oil, Mind Bender, Do As I Say, and many others. This is an oil you do not want to use on yourself, but on others. Use it on a gender specific black figural candle to gain control over someone, or on a black snake candle to gain control over a situation and twist it to your advantage.
