INCENSE & RESINS
Incense is like a fragrant hymn to the Gods, the unique combination of sacred offerings, each with their own aromatic note, harmonise into a perfumed composition - music to the sense of smell.
Star Child Incenses contain purely natural substances such as fragrant herbs, flowers, resins, gums and wood chips that are infused with pure essential oils and absolutes. Each blend contains ingredients that are appropriate to the associated deities and magical purposes for which they are intended.
All of our Incense blends are potentised with our Magical Collections gathered from various sacred sites in accordance with the cycles of the Sun and Moon. The symbols assigned to each type of incense indicate the ethereal nature of the special collections added to the respective blends and thus provide a reference to their magical qualities.
How to burn Incense
Place a self-igniting charcoal disc in a fireproof dish, well away from flammable objects. The charcoal discs can be ignited simply by holding a match or lighter to the rim. Be aware that these discs may spit and sparkle profusely upon ignition. Allow plenty of air to flow around the charcoal to ensure that it burns evenly. Once the charcoal disc has finished sparkling it will start to glow, usually first on one side, then slowly spreading over the whole disc. When the entire disc is glowing red hot it is ready to use and you can place a pinch of incense on top. As the disc burns, the fire will concentrate in its centre. You may occasionally want to scrape off the ashes to expose the glowing centre and add fresh incense as desired.
Star Child creations are based on tradition and magic with intent.
