Sun Incenses Special

During the dark and cold season the body and mind may require additional stimuli that bring positivity and warmth into the home and life. Especially for lofty Gemini creatures such as myself, this can be essential. Mental strength, vigilance, coping with ego matters, removing bad vibes, recreation and vitality are some keywords coming to mind in this context. And to stay with the example, Gemini tend to have a need for being the center of attention, which can easily become a nuisance. Whereas the opposite would be a lack of self-confidence and a deficit in joy of living. Neither is desirable and dealing with such ego problems is part of the spiritual work associated with the ‘sun’. Besides, looking at typical sun herbs, you will find many of them are indeed fragrant and aromatic – so perfect for use in incense and aroma therapy. Now there are plenty of herbs that fall into this category and some of them have in fact several planetary attributions. The past weeks I’ve been researching this topic again, took notes, combined and re-combined ingredients. Throughout this I literally followed my nose (but also my eyes) and the result are three incense formulae that each put emphasis on a different solar aspect, scent and color:

IMG_9645 copyBlend I is the first I created and comes as an ‘all purpose’ incense, containing epitomes of solar herbs. Now the old formula has been modified, adding optionally either Amber or Labdanum to the composition, which further contains Bay leaf, sweet Blood Orange peel, aromatic Calamus root, spicy Cassia bark, Clove, fragrant Cedar wood, Frankincense Aden as well as Safflower and Sunflower petals. This is a warm and glorious blend, unfolding a smooth, balmy, spicy-sweet aroma when burnt. Embodying zest for life, this incense awakens the vital spirits. Burn for positivity, power, strength, lust for life, vitality, wealth and overall wellbeing.

IMG_9681 copyBlend II is aerial, refreshing and somewhat tarter. It contains the precious Gum Mastic resin, which is combined with high quality Frankincense, Elemi and green Lime peel as well as Hops, Rue and Walnut leaf – giving this blend an overall lemony fresh and pleasantly bitter-sweet aroma. Cinnamon adds sweet warmth. Spicy Angelica banishes negativity and sickness. Female & male Mistletoe from various trees are there for luck and invincibility. Use this blend for cleansing and removing bad vibes, for balancing and calming down, healing, protection, rejuvenation and revitalisation, for mental strength, vigilance and sharpening the senses, also for receiving and formulating visions.

IMG_9700 copyBlend III is a special offer, containing a unique type of heterogeneous black copal, which is varying in color from black to blood-red to golden-yellow and unfolds a mind-blowing, pine-like scent that is beyond comparison. Spicy-tangy, wintry fresh and uplifting, yet also warming, combining dark and light aspects. This blend embodies the signs of life shining through a blanket of snow covering the earth, its scent being rather heavenly. Further ingredients are White Copal, Yauhtli, Rosemary, Marigold, Juniper, Clove, Cinnamon, Carnation, Chamomile and Bay leaf. Elevating and unifying dark & light aspects, use this blend for purification, as a ceremonial incense, for meditation and spiritual work dealing with ego matters, transformation, heightened state of consciousness, and also for love, prosperity and protection.

As part of a special offer these incense blends are available in 50 ml Miron violet glass jars with black screw caps (offer good as long as supplies last). Besides this blend I + II are also available in standard 50 ml glass bottles with cork stoppers. If you’d rather like small samples you can also get a 14 ml test bottle of each. View below the details for pricing & packaging. For ordering please write e-mail to info@teufelskunst.com or, if you prefer, visit the Teufelskunst online shops at Storenvy and Etsy (yes, I’m back there!).

Towards the Equinox

IMG_7657 copy

Tonight I finished another two Sigil Card Sets to be shipped this week and spent the rest of the night with some red wine and a herbal contemplation, celebrating the end of summer and welcoming autumn. The equinox is not yet here but the air already smells like autumn and I am heavily working towards completing the next edition of my card sets as well as harvesting and preparing all sorts of herbs from our garden. E.g. yesterday I collected most of the Black Henbane and plenty of ripe Belladonna. Earlier this week I have been gathering Yew and Bittersweet Nightshade, with which I sat down tonight. These are noisy times, a lot of heated up thoughts are floating around and so I felt the need to oppose all that with the help of these herbs, which are simultaneously marking the start of a new circle… summer passed too fast, but I had some interesting experiences and crossed ways with a wonderful person (a huntress and taxidermist), who sent me some really amazing frankincense of the finest quality I’ve used up to this point… burning this heavenly stuff rounded up the night. Now the altar candle is still burning and the libation slowly drying/being consumed…

Sun Incense & Custom Incense Blends

Sun Herbs

Solar Incense

This Incense has been composed during the course of several nights. It contains a blend  of Solar Herbs (a selection of the herbs, spices and flowers pictured above) combined with Frankincense Aden. The herbs have partly been hand-picked from the garden and the wild, were left to dry slowly and have been blended with an equal amount of Frankincense Aden (Boswellia carteri). Burn this incense for Meditation, Centering and Concentration. For best results burn ca. 3-4 teaspoons on hot coals and then air the room thoroughly (for at least 1 hour). Your room will then be filled with a very pleasant scent for several days and you will feel its healing and uplifting effects on your body and mind.

Content: 60 ml

The Incense can be ordered with a Hand-Sewn Cloth Bag with Sun Seal. Comes with short introductions to each herb and info on the Frankincense used.

Price per portion (without cloth bag): €6 + shipping
Price including cloth bag with Gold Seal: €15 + shipping
NEW – with Info Booklet: + €1

– CURRENTLY SOULD OUT (more is on the way)

Custom-Made Incense Blends & Powders

We will mix you almost any Incense Blend or Powder customized for your needs, in large and small quantities. May it be incense for personal use at home, incense pouches to sell along with a publication of yours or large incense amounts needed for a performance. We will assist you.

The prices for our services will always stay fair and reasonable. However, you must consider that we too have costs and it takes time to carefully compose an incense that is later supposed to actually add the right vibrations to your ritual or meditation. In addition we care about presentation. You can have your incense delivered to you in a simple labeled plastic bag, hand-sewn and marked cloth bag, box or jar.

Consider always that shipping costs will be influenced by weight and size. Jars or glass vessels weigh more, must be packed extra-safe and take more space than a flat bag or box.

View also the A-Z list of all herbs, resins and spices we currently have available. If anything you are looking for is not listed there just ask!

Shipping Fees:

Depend on weight, size and destination country. Ask for exact shipping fees when you order! We never charge more than what it actually costs to ship. We ship only via registered mail.
