Samhain Herbal Incense
Samhain means "summers end" in Gaelic. Also called Witches New Year, it is a celebration of the third and final harvest. A time to celebrate Autumn, honor the dead, and rid ourselves of things not needed.
🔥 Release old patterns that no longer serve us by writing them down and burn in a bonfire or cauldron.
🌽 Celebrate the third harvest by preparing a feast and set a place for loved ones lost.

Burning of plants, trees, and herbs has been used for many years by many different cultures as a way to clear spaces and people of negative energy. It is also commonly used in meditation and ritual, or for protection. Science has also shown that herbal smoke cleans the air of bacteria and contaminates.
Our Samhain Herbal Incense Blend combines festive herbs and resins that align with the harvest season.

Samhain Celebration incense blend comes is a reusable 2 oz by volume tin and contains 0.6 oz by weight of herbs and resins. This is a loose incense that requires a heat proof burner and charcoal tablets.
Fill a heat proof incense bowl with at least 2" of sand, or natural ash. This will provide insulation for your burner. Charcoal can burn at up to 1500 degrees F
Using tongs or tweezers to hold the charcoal, light it from the bottom with a lighter and place in your burner.
When the charcoal is glowing red hot and covered in grayish ash (usually about 5 minutes), add a pinch of your incense.
When the smoke begins to thin you can add more. Be careful to not add too much as it can smother the charcoal and put it out.
The charcoal will typically stay hot enough to burn incense for 30 - 45 minutes.
