INCENSE. A mainstay of any spiritual practice. Its smoke is used to cleanse and purify a space, and to call in the energy that a ritualist desires to work with. I love incense of all kinds... But my favorite is loose incense.
There's nothing like taking a bit in your hand and feeling your energy combine with the energy of the natural world.
INTO THE WOODS evokes that feeling of being surrounded by a deep forest. Rich, woodsy scents. Trees and moss and leaves under your feet. I imagine THIS is the scent Red Riding Hood remembers. Or maybe Hansel and Gretel... Layered on a base of Sweet Annie, I've combined cedar tips, juniper and cedar berries, bayberry leaves, a bit of sweet woodruff and wild cherry bark, a little cinnamon and orange peel. Leave it as an offering to the Green Man, or try burning a bit on a charcoal diskette, to fill your space with its lovely smoke.
Enchanted Botanicals' unique blends are based on a specific purpose or season that I would like to work with. What makes the blends different than the other lovely blends out there? The answer is simple. I connect with my guides, plant devas, and plant spirits and receive the formulas direct from the source!
My loose incense is organic, hand-crafted, and small batch. I grow many of the herbs and flowers here in my Virginia gardens. What I can't grow, I gather from ethical, highly respected sources. I don't skimp on quality because we believe that you AND the Earth are too important!
I adhere to small batch formulating for one important reason: As the energy in the world around us shifts, we should adjust to be in the highest state of flow with that energy as possible. This may require me to tweak the formula a bit each time I start blending. Seasons change, the wheel of the year turns. So our blends remain dynamic and in tune with what is needed at the time.
Packaged in an unbreakable (and recyclable) jar -- so no worries about taking this with you on your trek into the Wild Unknown.
Now for the legal stuff... PLEASE use caution when burning any product (including loose casting herbs or candles). I know it's organic and all that, but PLEASE do not ingest. Really. And while this incense can support your meditation, it's not intended to replace medical advice or common sense. Use responsibly. For spiritual purposes. And with love.
