Acacia wood and Syrian rue is an ancient incense blend. In ancient Egypt, Acacia trees, are portrayed on the walls of temple and pyramids and referred to as the tree of life. Under this tree, the first gods of Egypt were born. Osiris is also believed to live inside the spirit of all Acacia trees. In the book of Moses, it is said that the burning bush set afire in front of Moses was an acacia tree. All across the Levant, Acacia was recognized as sacred and was revered as a building material saved for only temples and objects such as the ark of the covenant. While the spirit of acacia is strong, this spirit needs a key to release it. That key is Syrian rue. Together they make a combination, not unlike Ayahuasca.
There has been quite a bit of Scholarly literature written on the ingredients of Vedic mystery incenses and the drink Soma and the Eleusinian mystery incenses and the drink Kykeon. Amanita muscaria mushrooms, Syrian rue and Acacia wood are always mentioned as possible ingredients in the sacred mystery rites of these cults.
Frankincense, particularly Boswellia sacra as evidenced by its name, was and still is considered one of the most precious resins in the world. From ancient China to the Levant and then on to Rome this frankincense has been used for its euphoric, mood-enhancing effects and spirit opening effects.
The ancients used the combination of these plants, along with other ingredients, in great smoking quantities, inside tented spaces where they experienced their gods. Road of the Blessed offers this ancient incense experience in a rather homeopathic dose to help open the doors of perception during meditation or for a gentle change in spirit.

An incense of the Ancient Mysteries and very evoctive of the Rites of Eleusis in my mind. It is thought that entheogens were a part of the Eleusinain Mysteries (and many others tradtions) and this blend is homage to that road of the Mystai. For seekers of the unique and esoteric. The kykeon of incense.
