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!

Abramelin incense. Abramelin incense is a traditional ceremonial magic incense for use in ritual work such as described in the writings of Abramelin the Mage. This formula is made of all resins and spices according to Scott Cunningham's recipe, which is a standard. Because of the Wood Aloes it contains, Abramelin incense bubbles on the charcoal, so it looks very dramatic for a ceremonial ritual.   $8 1/2 oz. vial   more info... Air incense.

There are many nice and a whole lot more cheezy burners fro charcoal incense from import stores, and many people use Native American traditional Abalone shells. My solution is: I shop the many resale stores of Austin TX, and buy nice oversized cocktail or martini glasses, and then you can choose the ornamental gravel that goes into the glass to prevent the burning charcoal from cracking the glass. I've got black pebbles, mixed natural colored pebbles and silver-painted stone chips. Let me know if you have a preference. I will try to keep the photos up-to-date, but you might get something similar to the photo, because I'm buying them individually at resale shops. I really like this apparatus more than the import burners, because the long stem of the glass allows you to carry the incense about the house.   $13 cocktail glass and ornamental gravel   more info...
Charcoal tablets. Charcoal tablets come in packages of ten, and should be kept in a Ziplock bag or glass jar after opening, or they won't light as well.
