Merry meet all,
It’s ten days till Winter Solstice.
Here is an awesome recipe for winter incense so you can enjoy the fresh invigorating scent of winter indoors.
- 2 parts Juniper berries
- 2 parts mugwort
- 1 part cedar
- 1 part pine resin
- 1 part laurel leaves
- 1 part chopped sweetgrass
- 1/2 part rosemary
Add the ingredients together slowly. Measure carefully and be sure to put your intent into your magickal working. Stir deosil. Charge your incense with an incantation like this:
We celebrate the sun’s return, we celebrate life, death and rebirth, cold winter nights rule the sky. Let these herbs bless this wintry time. Blessed Be.
Store your incense in a clean, dry, and labeled jar. When you use the incense, keep the burner temperature on warm not hot. Avoid scalding the incense. Enjoy your winter incense.
If you want to offer winter incense to your pagan friends, tie a ribbon around the jar, make a prettier label, and work in a cinnamon stick and pine bough into the ribbon. Perhaps you could find a wooden spoon to add to the jar.
