Before the arrival of the stick incense, traditionally incense was a mixture of hand ground herbs and resins, to help promote healing on physical and spiritual level. Shaman's, Healer's, Medicine Men and Witch Doctors all worked with the natural properties of herbs and resins to heal their patients, no matter what the ailment was. From exorcising evil spirits to healing a toothache, they had the remedy to offer. Often the herbs and resins were ground into a fine powder, to help mix and release the aromas once burned over hot charcoals, allowing the smoke to bring forth the 'magick' of their work. Through the use of these magickal healing powders, many uses were found. By sprinkling the appropriate blend around the bed, you would remove nightmares and night terrors; steeping certain powders into a tea would help women from cramping; adding a magickal blend to a bath could help heal a sickness; pressing the herbal/ resin blend into a paste could create all natural cone incense, often used in rituals and magickal workings, and the list goes on. I've decided to bring this natural practice back by offering special artisan all natural incense powder blends to help you get back into the ancient ways of magick.
