The magic fragrance of this natural incense is based on old customs, traditions and the belief that every plant or aroma has its own magical purpose. It is like a witch recipe, where each plant and its aroma have a very important aromatherapic and magic function.
Juniper: Since ancient times juniper has been used to protect from and ward off evil spirits. The energy of the burning plant helps to develop the personality’s consistence and perseverance, the ability to distinguish lies and fight them easily. It protects the aura form aggression, helps to quickly find a proper way from any difficult situation. It also helps to avoid self-projected destructive irritation, gain the deserved authority, and develops such qualities as nobleness, grace, etc.
Myrrh: the Bible tells us a story of the Three Kings, who came to honor baby Jesus and brought him myrrh as one of the presents. Myrrh was valued equally to gold, and the Greeks still consider it sacred. For about one-and-a-half thousand years myrrh was one of the most valuable commodities in the world and thus Arab traders who sold incense were amongst the wealthiest people. Myrrh is the symbol of wealth, health and prosperity. The old civilizations used the resin of myrrh-trees as perfume and incense, as well as in medicine, where wound ointment made of myrrh was valued greatly. Myrrh essential oil has antiseptic qualities, stops inflammation and speeds up healing. The fragrance of myrrh helps to sort out thoughts, prevents from indulging into non-relevant details. This scent is particularly suitable for meditation, as it helps to ward off egocentric thoughts, restores the objectivity and adequacy of one’s psychological state, calms irritation, and improves sleep. It also increases sexual sensitivity.
Ambergris: solid, flammable, waxy substance, produced in the digestive system of sperm whales and often called “floating gold”. Usually it is found floating in the water or washed on shore in tropical countries, and is highly valued by the perfume industry where it is used for producing expensive perfume. This waxy odorous substance is lighter than water and can float in the sea for years, where under the influence of salty water and sun it becomes hard. When kept in a hermetic container, ambergris gives off a strong scent of musk, which is highly valued by perfumers all around the world and which has been used as an aphrodisiac since ancient times. It is one of the most-highly prized ingredients of perfume. The smell of ambergris is characterized by unique invigorating evening musk aroma with oriental notes. Ambergris has been long considered a symbol of luxury and health.

When we create our natural incense we do not use charcoal, unnatural glue, fragrance oils or other additional materials (eg wooden sticks). Our incense is made exclusively from natural plants, which are reinforced with a special natural binder made from guar gum.
Our incense has no wooden stick, so we recommend to fill a small jar with a non-combustible material (such as salt or sand) that you can put in the incense stick, and when it burns, you will easily clean your incense holder you made by yourself.
Package contains 5 sticks. Each stick burns approx. 30 – 40 minutes. The burning duration might differ depending on temperature, humidity and changes in the atmosphere. For a medium room, we recommend that you burn one-third part of one stick.
