As the Wheel of the Year turns, we feel the need for traditions and rituals. It is part of the Human Culture and has been since the dawn of civilization.
To celebrate and revere our yearly rituals, I have crafted a collection of loose incense packets to be used throughout the year--ten cunningly-crafted, blessed, charged, and fitting blends made with only natural ingredients: herbs, spices, resins, bark, and essential oils.
The packet contains about one tablespoon (14 ml, or half a fluid ounce) of ground herbs, spices, woods, and resins, with a few drops of essential oil. EVERY recipe is 100% NATURAL and smells DIVINE!

D I R E C T I O N S : You have a couple of choices in how you use this packet.
-First of all, as you can see in my pictures, you can simply place the entire, unopened packet in the embers of a fire, inside or out. Don't put it directly in the fire, or it will burn up too quickly, and you won't get to enjoy it for long. The packet, if placed correctly, should give off about 7-10 minutes of good, aromatic smoke.
-The second way that you can use this packet is by opening it up and using it bit by bit on charcoal disks, as you would with regular loose incense. It will last you quite a bit longer this way, but it's not nearly as dramatic, in my opinion. :)
***C A U T I O N*** Take care with the fires that you create. Never leave a fire unattended, and make sure it is put out completely. Some herbs, resins, and spices burn more quickly than others, so practice fire safety and common sense.
This item is sold as a curio, for esoteric purposes only.
THANK YOU, AND MAY NATURE BLESS YOU ALL YEAR LONG!
