Beltane Herbal Incense
Beltane, the 5th stop on the Wheel of the Year, honors the union of the God and Goddess. The new Spring energy is at it's peak and the Earth is bursting with life.
Love, fertility, vitality, and passion are the theme of Beltane. It is a time of ideas, hopes, and dreams. The potential of Spring becomes conception.
Beltane is a fire festival and as such fires are traditionally burned for purification. Wash your face in morning dew for beauty in the coming year. Spend time outdoors with a partner or loved one. Feel the joy of new life and love all around.
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.

Beltane Celebration incense blend comes is a reusable 2 oz tin. This is a loose incense that requires a heat proof burner and charcoal tablets. Your incense will come with one charcoal tablet included.
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.
