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!

Ancient Magick of Time and the Music of the Spheres


Saturn incense is made on Saturdays in the hour of Saturn in the evening. Saturnís number is three, and so Saturn incense is made of only three herbs and resins corresponding to the elder planet.

Saturn is the Elder god because it is the slowest of the seven Planets, taking nearly twenty nine years to complete its circuit from the perspective of Earth. Saturn therefore rules matters of time (Chronos is his Greek name), destiny, institutions, buildings, the elderly, funerals, will, architecture, death, and banishment. You can use Saturn incense to work magick of these sorts, and to attune to the Sephiroth Binah of the Tree of Life.

Jupiter incense is made on Thursdays in the hour of Jupiter in the daytime. Jupiterís number is four, and so Jupiter incense is made of only four herbs and resins corresponding to the ruler planet.

Jupiter is the Ruler or Emperor god because it is the second slowest of the seven Planets, the junior of elder god Saturn. Jupiter takes about twelve years to complete its circuit from the perspective of Earth. Jupiter is also known as Zeus in the Greek mythologies. Jupiter therefore rules matters of wealth, monetary matters, legal matters, honors, luck, materialism and expansion. You can use Jupiter incense to work magick of these sorts, and to attune to the Sephiroth Chesed of the Tree of Life.

Mars incense is made on Tuesdays in the hour of Mars in the daytime. Marsí number is five, and so Mars incense is made of five herbs and resins corresponding to the warrior planet.

Mars is the Warrior god because it is quicker than the emperor planet Jupiter and the elder god Saturn. Mars takes 687 days to complete its circuit from the perspective of Earth. Mars is also known as Ares in the Greek mythologies. ars therefore rules matters of war, conflict, borders, boundaries, surgery, hunting, lust, passion, strength, courage, sports, competitions, and debate. You can use Mars incense to work magick of these sorts, and to attune to the Sephiroth Geburah of the Tree of Life.

Sun incense is made on Sundays in the hour of Sun in the daytime. Sunís number is six, and so Sun incense is made of six herbs and resins corresponding to the child king planet.

Sun is both the Solar King and the Eternal Child-King. Sun takes one year to complete its circuit from the perspective of Earth. Sun is also known as Helios in the Greek mythologies. Sun therefore rules matters of leadership, government, employment, protection, purification, success, pride, healing, divinity, wise counsel, prophesy, and power. You can use Sun incense to work magick of these sorts, and to attune to the Sephiroth Tiphareth of the Tree of Life.

Venus incense is made on Fridays in the hour of Venus in the daytime. Venusí number is seven, and so Venus incense is made of seven herbs and resins corresponding to the love planet.

Venus is Goddess of both love and beauty. Venus takes 243 days to complete its circuit from the perspective of Earth. Venus is also known as Aphrodite in the Greek mythologies. Venus therefore rules matters of love, pleasure, beauty, vanity, the arts, music, perfumery, partnerships, friendships, creativity, and conversation. You can use Venus incense to work magick of these sorts, and to attune to the Sephiroth Netzach of the Tree of Life.

Mercury incense is made on Wednesdays in the hour of Mercury in the daytime. Mercuryís number is eight, and so Mercury incense is made of eight herbs and resins corresponding to the messenger planet.

Mercury is the messenger God for all the Gods. Mercuryís quick circuit of fifty nine days from Earthís perspective and its nimble reversals (retrogrades) make it seem to be carrying messages amongst the Planets. Mercury is also known as Hermes in the Greek mythologies. Mercury therefore rules matters of communication, negotiation, divination, prediction, magick, illusion, trickery, learning, study, teaching, inventions, medicine, self improvement, and celibacy. You can use Mercury incense to work magick of these sorts, and to attune to the Sephiroth Hod of the Tree of Life.

Moon incense is made on Mondays in the hour of Moon in the nighttime, when the Moon is in the waxing crescent shape like its alchemical symbol. Moonís number is nine, and so Moon incense is made of nine herbs and resins corresponding to the planet of dreams.

Moon is the Goddess of the tides. Moon orbits the Earthís in twenty nine days and its periodicity corresponds to the fertility cycles of human women. Moon is also known as Luna in the Greek mythologies. Moon therefore rules matters of dreams, divination, psychism, the sea, travel, cleansing, agriculture, the home, emotions, and imagination. You can use Moon incense to work magick of these sorts, and to attune to the Sephiroth Yesod of the Tree of Life.

Natural Magick incenses are composed of high quality resins, herbs, and sometimes essential oils. They are ritually hand ground on appropriate days of the week for Planetary influences and on the best day of the Moon's cycle for Lunar powers. Unlike most powder incenses, I use no "base" or filler to alter or dilute the powers of the active ingredients.

These magick 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:

Natural Magick Shop 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, a cast iron cauldron, or you can use a glass or ceramic bowl IF you put a layer of sand, marbles, aquarium pebbles or rocks to insulate glass or ceramic from the heat of the charcoal.

I 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.

It 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. If 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. Advice from experience!

I 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!
