Alchemical Ritual Incense Blends

These ritual incense blends use the finest herbs, woods, resins and essential oils. Each incense is blended and charged during the appropriate lunar phases and astrological correspondences to enhance the potency and heighten awareness. All of the blends are designed to metaphysically awaken to their purpose during use, to elevate and enliven the senses of the ritualist, and thus serve as a direct link to the inherent energies it embodies.

Alchemical Ritual Incense

Loose Incense Blends

Each blend comes in a re-usable glass storage jar to keep it fresh between uses.

These bottles contain more than just incense, each batch is carefully hand-blended to achieve magical results. When you open the bottle you discover a mingling of scents which is truly alchemical. It smells good enough to be used as potpouri right out of the bottle, but that is only the first glimpse of what is hidden inside these herbal mixtures. Layers of alchemical meaning has gone into each handmade batch. Add your True Will and sprinkle over lit incense charcoal to create meaningful and transformative rituals.

All of these blends are creations of a Master Herbalist, Alchemist and Ritual Artist, Catamara Rosarium.  Her experience and knowledge working with herbs is extensive, refined through much experimentation, and motivated by her desire and attraction to herbs and scents and how they impact the senses. Some have few ingredients, and some many.  There are several to choose from, including our own custom incense blend:

How to Burn Loose Incense

Brass Resin / Loose Incense Burner

Brass Censer / Burner

This incense is not self-lighting. You will need to use an incense charcoal disk in a ceramic or soapstone bowl with a base of sand.  You can also use a brass censer like this one.  You can put the lit charcoal on the screen (flipped over to form a screen bowl rather than dome) OR remove the screen and put a base of sand in the bottom. Take a charcoal disk and light until glowing (an old pair of tweezers is good to hold the charcoal while you light it) Once glowing, set the  lit charcoal on top of the sand or screen.  Take a pinch of the incense blend and sprinkle directly on the charcoal. (We recommend Three Kings charcoal – it is more reliable and easier to light than other brands)

Burning herbal or resin incense in this manner is extremely smokey. So make sure there is adequate ventilation (and you are far enough away from a smoke alarm) before burning.  Some incenses are best burned outdoors.

In addition to our alchemical ritual incense blends, be sure to check out all of our other traditional resin and herbal incenses.

If you are interested in creating your own incense blends, we carry a couple of books on the subject:

The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews by Scott Cunningham
Do you know which incense to burn? Is it possible to add scented oils together to get a more powerful oil? And how do you make your own, appropriately-scented tools?

Incense – Crafting & Use of Magickal Scents by Carl F Neal
Making your own incense with natural ingredients is a powerful way to connect with earth energies-and it’s much healthier to burn indoors than the chemical-laden commercial variety. Incense is your complete guide to making your own homemade blends.
