We welcome the energy of the Sun God and as he overtakes the winter darkness and honor Ostara, the Goddess of the Dawn with celebrations of renewal and rebirth.
Ostara is the 4th stop on the wheel of the year, also known as the Spring or Vernal equinox. This is a day of perfect balance, with equal light and dark as the days become longer and the nights shorter.
Greet the sunrise at dawn and enjoy the sunset at dusk on this day, begin work in your garden, or just get outside to enjoy the beauty of the natural world coming alive.
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 smudging cleans the air of bacteria and contaminates.

Ostara 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.
**Never leave a hot burner unattended. Keep out of reach of pets and children. We do not guarantee any specific results with use of this product.**
