This incense blend is dedicated to the rituals surrounding Samhain and the dark days leading up to the winter solstice, when the sun reaches its annual nadir. The seal adorning the incense vessels is inspired by harvest symbolism, cycles and alchemical ideas surrounding the four elements.
The ingredients for this blend are the herbs traditionally associated with protection and healing, as well as the opening of the gates to the spirit world. Its fragrance and ingredients are linked in particular to the sylvan realm. It is no secret that the forest can effectively heal and strengthen a weakened or sick person.
The pine and spruce resin in this blend have been gathered by myself in the forest. They have an intense resinous, woody aroma. The thyme, sage, juniper and rosemary come from our own garden. The mugwort too, has been gathered by myself. When burnt, the blend develops a strong white smoke and is best used outdoors or in a well ventilated area. If used indoors, air out the room afterwards and then enjoy the scent, which will last for days.
Scent: woody, herbaceaous, balsamic
Contains: amber, juniper needles and bark, mugwort, oak bark, pine and fir resin, rosemary, sage, thyme, vervain
Use: Use this incense blend for cleansing, healing, protection and communication with the spirits. Its fragrant ingredients evoke in particular the spirits of the wild/ sylvan realm and may aid in re-connecting with the spiritual world of the forests and wilderness. It can also be used on the “Totensonntag“, for contacting one’s ancestors and for protection from “Wiedergänger” (revenants).
