Before the arrival of the stick incense, traditionally incense was a mixture of hand ground herbs and resins, to help promote healing on physical and spiritual level. Shaman’s, Healer’s, Medicine Men and Witch Doctors all worked with the natural properties of herbs and resins to heal their patients, no matter what the ailment was. From exorcising evil spirits to healing a toothache, they had the remedy to offer. Often the herbs and resins were ground into a fine powder, to help mix and release the aromas once burned over hot charcoals, allowing the smoke to bring forth the ‘magick’ of their work. Through the use of these magickal healing powders, many uses were found. By sprinkling the appropriate blend around the bed, you would remove nightmares and night terrors; steeping certain powders into a tea would help women from cramping; adding a magickal blend to a bath could help heal a sickness; pressing the herbal/ resin blend into a paste could create all natural cone incense, often used in rituals and magickal workings, and the list goes on. I’ve decided to bring this natural practice back by offering special artisan all natural incense powder blends to help you get back into the ancient ways of magick.
CLARO OCULUS : To make clear in the mind’s eye.
Latin: claro : to make bright or clear, make clear in the mind.
oculus : eye.
‘CLARO OCULUS’ is my artisan blend of all natural herbs and resins turned into powder form, charged by Amethyst stone to heighten the magic. With it’s dark, earthy and spicy scent with hints of sour notes from the hibiscus flower, Claro Oculus was created to help heal, awaken and activate the Third Eye (6th chakra) to better promote intuitive wisdom, insight and mental clarity for the user.
BENEDICTIO : Blessing – To Bless
‘BENEDICTIO’ is a my sweet, warm & soothing scent, created from an all natural mixture of herbs and resins ground together into a fine powder. Lavender & Chamomile bring in the loving and peaceful energies, while Lemon and White Copal help to invite in the cheer and delight, all tied together with the serene vibration of Selenite stone. This is a powerful artisan mix to raise your vibrations as you call in the spirits of love to truly put a smile on your face.
‘AMOR’ is a sharp spicey floral scent, made from my artisan blend of red roses, Jasmine flowers, Star Anise, Clove bud and Palo Santo resin, blessed by Rose Quartz for help in love matters, self appreciation, friendship, relationship protection, passion & affection. Love is the most powerful gift we can give anything & this is my gift to you. Working with only the purest energies of love and light, I hope that this blend brings you an abundance of peace and self love, because with these two things you can conquer pretty much anything!
PURGO : to clean, cleanse, purify / clear away, wash off / justify.
‘PURGO’ is a Strong, earthy, fresh & penetrating scent, made from my artisan blend of White Sage, Eucalyptus, Frankincense resin, St. John’s Wort and Elderberry. Charged with Clear Quartz and Onyx, this mix will definitely clear energy in any sacred space, filling it with pure Love & Light. I created this blend to help with purification on all levels, spiritually or mentally. The smoke of these magickal plants work together to cling to the negative vibrations and transform them back into a neutral state, while the frankincense raises the spiritual frequencies to allow for healing and enlightenment. The Clear Quartz and Onyx stones I infuse with this blend, not only help to remove low vibrations, but electromagnetic smog as well, caused by electronics and the like. A highly useful tool to always have handy in your apothecary collection, as it works wonders for consecrations or lifting general bad moods.
