Incense

Natural Magick incenses are composed of high quality resins, herbs, and sometimes essential oils. They are hand ground on appropriate days of the lunar cycle. Unlike most powder incenses, we use no "base" or filler to alter or dilute the powers of the active ingredients.

These incenses are made to be burned on incense charcoals. Light the charcoal with match or lighter, set it in a flameproof incense burner or on a brick, rock or bowl of sand, pebbles, or salt. Allow the charcoal to light completely and then sprinkle on a pinch the incense. Add more pinches as desired. See below for more detailed instructions.

How to burn incense & resins

The incenses are ground in a mortar from resins, woods, herbs and spices. They have nothing in them which burns on its own, hence the need for a self-burning charcoal.

First you need something safe to burn your incense in. The charcoals used to burn resins get very hot. Use a burner made for resin incense, with a metal screen or with sand or rocks to insulate from the heat.

We often break the charcoals in half because they burn for nearly an hour. Light the charcoal with a lighter or match, and when it starts to spark, put it in the burner.

lt is best to let the whole charcoal begin to glow before adding any incense. Then sprinkle on the incense as desired, a little bit at a time. lf you add too much or cover the charcoal completely, you might put out the charcoal. Also, most natural resin incenses smell better when burned in small amounts at a time.

Keep away from kids and pets. Let the charcoal burn down completely, and make sure it's all ash before throwing out because it could set trash on fire. Ask us how we know!

We don't clean the burner after every use. When there is a collection of ash in the burner, pour contents into strainer over the sink and rinse with water. Let dry, and put rocks back in burner. (If you use sand you'll just have to dump the whole mess and use fresh sand).

Store unused charcoal in a zip-lock bag or in a jar, because they won't burn well if they collect humidity from the air.

Enjoy!

High John the Conqueror incense

Just as you would carry High John the Conqueror root to overcome overwhelming odds against you, for legal matters, luck, money, gambling, personal power, success, physical strength, sexual prowess, and for men to attract women, you can burn High John incense for any magickal working related to these endeavors.

My formulation for High John incense begins with pulverizing the whole High John root. This is very acrid when burned, and the smoke is probably not very good to breathe in large amounts. I use two other Saturnine botanicals to make a more pleasing scent that nonetheless has the very potent, powerful energies of High John root. My essential oil blend used in my High John the Conqueror oil is blended into these botanicals, harmonizing and unifying this incense to the High John oil, so that they will work very well together, if you are using both the incense and the oil.

High John was said to be an African slave, who through his intelligence, charisma, and magick, was always able to end up ruling his putative master and became a very wealthy man even though he was technically a slave. Just about every Caribbean island plus New Orleans claims High John as a resident or ancestor spirit. This root which is said to have been his main source of magickal power is a staple of HooDoo and Southern herb magick. The root comes from Mexico, so the original High John may have consulted with Mexican Native American magicians to find a substitute for his African power herb. The vine resembles Morning Glory.

There is significant disagreement about which planet corresponds to High John the Conqueror Root. I have finally settled on a firm opinion. High John is a perennial relative of the Morning Glory, and the root is the useful magickal part. When it is sliced, as for drying, it betrays the growth year rings, which correspond to the rings of the planet Saturn. Considering the very broad uses of High John for luck, money, legal aid, overcoming odds, etc, we could easily lump these intentions into the broad category of Destiny workings, which is ruled by the planet Saturn. Regular Morning Glory is ruled by Saturn as well.
