Rosarium Blends makes their own ritual incense blends, essential oil blends, and natural perfumes using the finest herbs, woods, resins and essential oils. All formulations are original recipes and the result of extensive historical research, practical experimentation and magical studies. Each incense is blended and charged during specific lunar phases, astrological transits, and correspondences. Thus formulated with intention to enhance the charm’s potency, enliven the senses, and increase the heightened awareness they are designed to awaken. This is traditional incense, which is burned on a charcoal tablet in a censer for group ritual or individual devotionals or meditation.
We were so impressed with some samples we received a couple of years ago, that we had Catamara create our signature incense blend for Eye of Horus, based on the mythic parts of our symbol, the Eye of Horus, the “moon” Eye.
Catamara Rosarium is the sole proprietor of Rosarium Blends. She is a Master Herbalist, Alchemist and Ritual Artist. But that’s just the short version.

In her own words… excerpts from Interview with an Alchemist
The inspiration for my blends primarily comes from individual magickal workings where I have felt inspired to create devotional or magickal charms to work with during these rites. I have worked with each one extensively; therefore the egregore of each charm is quite strong.
Each of my blends are magickal charms. They work on the subtle plain even when worn or burned without intention. If worked with intention the possibilities one experiences working with them is indeed limitless.
Not only are my charms potent and powerful, they also smell intoxicating! I am providing the key to unlock/open portals to the divine, it’s up to the practitioner to determine how they wish to utilize this.

“These are not blends for the seeker of the cosmetic, but the cosmic. Several contain some rather shamanic plants and should used with care and intent. That is what brings them their mystery, they are not created for the everyday but for sacred work and exploration.
These are not what you find in just any occult book store. These are what you find at the midwife’s cottage at the edge of the wood, or in the chamber of the Alchemist’s soror.”
