Sacramentals – exorcised water, oil, salt and incense

Sacramentals such as exorcised water, oil, said and incense are very successful in fight against evil. Every priest can exorcise water, salt and oil.

The effect of sacramentals

Every priest can use the sacramentals. Their power depends on the priest’s personal beliefs and the cooperation of the person accepting the sacramental through acts of faith, love and repentance. The power of sacramentals lies in the intercessory prayer of the Church, in the name of which the priest blesses or exorcises people and objects.

Sacramentals create a connection between the supernatural and natural worlds, and therefore they sanctify man’s life. Because of that, they are a threat for evil spirits and their value in the fight against forces of evil cannot be taken lightly. See: “Sacramentals in the Catechism”.

Sprinkling a possessed person with blessed water is an act of offering them to God. Blessed water protects people, houses, items, lets us come out triumphant of the fight against suggestions, physical and mental suffering, springing from the evil spirit. Therefore, it can also be drunk, sprayed on painful spots on the body and on everyday items. This helps to neutralize signs manifested by the evil spirit on the body, as well as on objects.

Types of sacramentals

Exorcised oil is a special sort of sacramental. According to father Amorth, a roman exorcist, the oil has the ability to remove various magical, poisonous, impure meals, which found their way into the enslaved’s body through eating or drinking. Therefore, exorcised oil may be used to season food, when a suspicion that something poisonous, harmful or magical has been eaten arises. It causes a fast expulsion of the object in question. Rubbing with oil aids the work of grace in the fight with the evil spirit and his influence on the possessed person’s body.

Exorcised salt works on a given place through sprinkling in rooms considered infected by the devilish forces’ actions, e.g. in places where evil spirits were summoned, pagan or spiritistic rituals took place. It is also used in the protection of houses, homes, farm buildings and fields, if a suspicion that they are under the influence of curses arises. Salt may be added to food if a suspicion of being enchanted through a meal arises.

Blessed incense is used in specific conditions, when evil spirits overpower the enslaved person, denying them contact with their surroundings. The smoke of blessed incense irritates evil spirits, which causes them to reveal themselves and move away. This helps the priest in the recognition of evil spirits.

You can ask every priests for any of those sacramentals. The exorcism over water, salt and oil can be conducted by any priest, using prayers from the Roman Ritual.
