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