This incense is specifically hand-crafted with 12 resins, herbs and essential oils corresponding to protection.
Made with frankincense, myrrh, copal, rosemary, mugwort, angelica, rue, mistletoe, hyssop, vervain, St. John's wort and eucalyptus, this power-packed incense is designed to create an area of protection within your sacred space and to enhance any spells and rituals aimed at protection. The ingredients are chosen for their powers of banishing unwanted energies and raising vibrations.
The number 12 is significant for its spiritual correspondences including its association with the 12 signs of the zodiac, the 12 months of the year, the 12 hours of the day, the 12 tribes of Israel, and represents the completion of a cycle, wholeness and completion, and allows us to see things from a higher perspective.
Incense is sold in packs of 6 cones and all incense is hand-crafted with organic ingredients, including cedarwood sawdust and makko powder (also known as Tabu no ki) from the bark of the Machilus thunbergii tree. This all-natural organic powder acts as a binder which holds the cones together and helps to regulate how they burn.
Each cone is weighed to between 3 to 3.5 grams before being dried to ensure uniformity in size and end up being about 1" tall. Given that they are hand made, there may be some variation in shape.
