Incense

Incense – Loose and sticks

incense nashvilleIncense has been used for thousands of years for prayer, spiritual purposes, to scent the air, drive way insects, and for protection and purification. Today, many people use it for the scent alone. A variety of materials have been used in making incense. Historically there has been a preference for using locally available ingredients. For example, sage and cedar were used by the indigenous peoples of North America. Trading in incense materials comprised a major part of commerce along the Silk Road and other trade routes, one notably called the Incense Route.

The same could be said for the techniques used to make incense. Local knowledge and tools were extremely influential on the style, but methods were also influenced by migrations of foreigners, among them clergy and physicians who were both familiar with incense arts. Incense is an important part of Hindu offerings, both in the home and in the temple. It forms a part of the daily ritual in invoking the presence of God in preparation for worship. In Buddhism, this ritual was transferred to the representations of the Buddha (or bodhisattvas) as a part of dāna.

Scriptures are clear that the fragrant fumes that ascended from the incense represented the prayers of godly people, those in covenant relationship with Jehovah. A psalm attributed to David petitioned the Lord: “Let my prayer be set forth as incense before you” (Psalm 141:2).

Loose Magical Incense – Hoodoo incense

hoodoo incenseThe making of loose incense requires a good balance of ingredients in order to create the lasting, smoldering effect that incense is known for. My loose incense is what is called “self-igniting,” meaning, I have added in makko powder so that it will light on its own without having to burn it over charcoals. However, you may choose to burn it on charcoal disks along with other raw herbs, resins, flowers and barks.

Each type of incense incorporates the herbs and essential oils that were historically used for that specific magical purpose.







5.00 per packet. 1/3 cup of loose incense makes plenty of burnings.
Incense has been used for thousands of years for prayer, spiritual purposes, to scent the air, drive way insects, and for protection and purification.

The back label for each pack of my loose incense reads:
“Incense has been used throughout history to carry one’s prayer towards the heavens or to cleanse a space for ceremonial use. Exodus 30:1, “Thou shalt make an Altar to burn Incense on.” The oldest incenses were in loose form – combining tree resins, woods, and dried herbs or flowers. How to use: take a pinch of loose incense and form into a loose cone or mound shape on a fire safe dish or in sand. Light top of incense, blow out, and allow to continue to burn.”
