A single scent - sweet and woody
Traditional Uses: Protection, healing, spirituality.
Suggested Use: Sandalwood has been considered sacred for a very long time. Prevalent throughout ancient Mesopotamia (present day Iran/ Iraq, the "cradle of civilization"), it quickly spread to India, Greece, Egypt, Asia, and around the world. Richly fragrant, Sandalwood incense is exceptional for protection spells--burn the incense to cast a circle, create a perimeter around your living space, or drive harmful spirits away. It is also wonderful during healing rituals for driving sickness out of the body and calling in helpful entities. It deepens the spirituality of all who smell it and creates an atmosphere perfect for magick.
History: Lighting incense is a traditional way to honor the higher powers and to begin metaphysical workings, magick, ceremonies, and meditations. For thousands of years, people have used incense for all these purposes and more. You can light incense for your own private purposes, and ours is one of the best. Long ago incense was hand-made, by powdering wood pulp, charcoal, and resin then compressing the mixture into a stick or cone shape. Dreaming Gates incense is still made by hand, the way our ancient ancestors made offerings to their gods and guides. Each piece is soaked and empowered in the process for exceptional strength.
