Mourning Incense In Store Now

Mourning Incense was created to help alleviate feelings of loss. It was carefully formulated to instill joy and hope.


Made without the traditional inclusion of dried fruit or the high quantity of dry herbs, this kyphi-style incense is more resinous, fluid, and more deeply sweet than our other kyphi incense. A very small bit goes a long, long way.

We began with intensely fragrant oakmoss, sandalwood chips, and orris root and soaked them in red wine for five days, then all the resins, frankincense, myrrh, white fir, elemi, and pinon were powdered and boiled in a vat of honey until they became a cohesive mass of sweet, fragrant resinified honey. We then added the oakmoss, santal, orris and wine to the honey blend during the last stages of cooking to bind all the ingredients. After the honey resin cooled, we then spread a layer of jasmine concrete over the top and began a process of weeks of kneading until the 'honey dough' was firm and more or less dry.

Use when the blues strike, or use when things are going well, as a sort of celebration of life and all her gifts. Mourning Incense creates a fair bit of smoke when burned, so beware.

*Please note that you will have to purchase charcoal to burn this, and all our other fabulous kyphi incense ~ we do not sell charcoals for this purpose. You may also use an electric incense burner. Charcoal can be purchased online or at smoke shops or wherever hookah is sold.

New Hydrosol!


Sacred Blend Hydrosol, a gorgeous and intensely scented hydrosol created using freshly cut white sage, cedar, and juniper is now available at The Scented Djinn Etsy Apothecary.

Our hydrosols are slow distilled in copper or glass, and we never remove the essential oil, so you get a high quality, intensely fragrant product. A little goes a long way.

This particular hydrosol is not intended for use on skin, or internally. It is a sacred blend used by Native Americans to 'smudge' before, during, and after ceremony, and is used by all manner of human folk to cleanse their sacred spaces, be it a bedroom, an entire home, or a ceremonial space. Smudging is done by lighting the dried plant material and allowing the smoke to cleanse the space of bad spirits or negativity. Now this can be done using a non-burning medium with the same result. Our Sacred Blend Hydrosol can also be used as a linen and pillow spray. Please allow the linen or pillow to dry thoroughly before using.

We're packaging this hydrosol, and the others to come, in 2.5 ounce slim aluminum spray bottles. $15.75 plus shipping and handling.
