Mermade Magickal Arts Incense
The incense made by Mermade Magickal Arts Incense will take you to a whole new level of incense. Not your ordinary run of the mill incense sticks, these incense products take you back in time when convenience was not the most important aspect – quality, scent, and the spiritual fulfillment that came along with it was.
Incense has for generations been an offering to the Gods. The incense of Mermade Magickal Arts, reminds you of why this as been a practice for thousands of years.
This very woodsy scent consists of combined Aloeswood powder, aged Patchouli, Rhu Khus vetivert, Hougary frankincense, juniper, and Port Orford cedar. It comes in a triangle shape, similar to a cone, but a bit different – as do many of the incense products offered by Mermade Magickal Arts. This scent is mystical, heady, and rich. It produces a strong, spiritual, and seductive scent.
Even reading about this incense is an experience – and an educational one at that. The webpage explains how Kyphi was used for in ancient Egyptian temples and gives some information on the process used to create it. This incense contains: Hougary frankincense, Yemeni myrrh, labdanum, Persian galbanum, Turkish storax, Chios mastic, African omumbiri resin, , juniper berries, honey, wine and other sacred spices, woods and resins. The website describes this incense as “dark, sweet and resinous”, and that is extremely accurate. Earthy and spicey, Kyphi was used to restore the sexuality of the Gods. If this aphrodisiac was good enough for the Gods, perhaps it can add some spice to your own love life.
This is a lighter scent designed for creating sacred space, prayer and meditation, and bringing joy to the spirit. This uplifting and clean smelling scent is created from: Eastern Aromatics (Tokusen blend), Hinoki and Atlas cedar essential oil, aloeswood, sandalwood, Hougary frankincense, and raw Borneol camphor from Japan.
Hougary Frankincense http://www.mermadearts.com/product_info.php?products_id=336
This frankincense is said to be the purist frankincense in the world. Once only allowed to be used by royals, it can now be owned and used by anyone who wants it and is willing to pay the price – it runs just over $8.00 for an ounce. This frankincense is has a white to light honey color and the tears are generally larger than most other types of frankincense.
It has a very rich scent and sweeter smelling than most other types as well. The Hougary frankincense will add considerably to any incense you wish to create, or you can also burn it on it’s own.
Balm of Isis (“In Sense Balms”)
Each In Sense Balm is blended into a base of Organic Leatherwood Beeswax. Along with frankincense, myrrh, labdanum and Kyphi, this blend includes three types of essential rose oils and absolutes: Rosa Bourbonia, Rose de Mai, and Rose Otto. This sensual, spicy blend, pays homage to Isis – a Goddess of life and magic who never gave up the search for the man she loved. The seductiveness of this scent, will most certainly draw your love to you.
Mermade Magickal Arts recommends using this incense outdoors in a meditation for peace. This celebration of earth consists of Balm of Gilead, fir needles, Port Orford cedar, juniper, Oman frankincense, pine resin, Salu pati, rose petals, bay laurel, cedar, labdanum, and ylang ylang. Each of these ingredients were chosen not only for its scent, but for its energy and use in spiritual matters as well. These ingredients come from all corners of the world to combine together in one beautiful incense stick – though this is a thick short stick – not the typical dipped stick incense. You can break off pieces to use if you do not want to burn the entire stick at once.
Out of all of the scents I received, this one is definitely the lightest. The packaging even is quite cool, as this (and most of the loose packed incenses) is packed in a corked glass vial type bottle, which helps add to the feel of authenticity of these incense blends.
This combination includes Hougary frankincense, myrrh, Nile spice resin blend, sparkling copal oro, juniper, cinnamon bark, and clove. It’s earthy and spicy, with a kick of sweetness.
Deep, rich and sweet – this blend of Black Etheopian resin, Hougary frankincense, Yemeni myrrh, black copal, aloeswood, vetiver, patchouli and Turkish storax bark – is so sweet you only need a little bit of the incense at a time to surround you in its luscious scent.
These incense products are definitely the finest I have experienced. The scents are so rich and powerful, they don’t just scent the air – they create a mood, they build a setting, they honor the Gods, the Goddesses, the very Earth herself. You can feel the intent behind these incenses because they really are THAT good. I am extremely impressed with Mermade Magickal Arts. The owner obviously knows her craft quite well and takes the time to perfect her work.
