The enchanting fragrance of the needles , resin and wood of the Larch tree.
So sweet and delicate, a very unique scent. Each Vial comes with a gift of Larch Wands, that burn like natural sparklers and release a light beautiful aroma!
The sacred energy of larch trees are acknowledged in northern cultures around the world. The Larix species are native to the clean, fresh, sunlit, air of cool northern latitudes and mountain tops. Their beauty is reflected in the water of northern lakes and marshy environments in which they prefer to grow. In this watery environment they act as an intermediary between the upper, middle and lower worlds. The animist of Siberia venerate larch trees as home to forest spirits and attach precious objects to their branches. People in the Nordic countries believe larch trees are a dancing and resting place for forest and mountain fairies. In many Slavic counties a freshly cut larch is beribboned and used as a Maypole. Some North American First Nations carve larch branches and use them as walking sticks to remind them of humans' connection to all life. Some people plait the long, willowy branches can into coiled headdresses into which can be placed the first buds and flowers of spring.
The Magic of the Larch
As much as the presence and fragrance of the Balsam Fir tree is powerful, masculine and regal, the Larch tree is powerful, feminine and playful. Her fragrance is jammy yet fruity and oh so light and elusive. Yet, the resin, wood and products from the still are extraordinarily energetic. When doused the essential oil and hydrosol, as well as this incense, exhibit a huge energy field with the dousing pendulum swinging beyond the perimeter of the bowl. The wood of larches are permeated with resin and prized as building material since it does not easily rot. The dried, young, twigs of larches are like magic sparklers when lit on fire. The twigs crackle and spark with resin while emitting small puffs of fragrant smoke.
It is not surprising that the fragrance of the larch tree stimulates the powers of renewal and helps free blocked energy. She is the only conifer to loose its needles in the fall and when the radiant, star clusters of needles return in early spring, they are soft as feathers to touch and the whole tree vibrates in the sunlight. In the summer her soft presence dances at the slightest breeze. In the late fall, after all the leaf trees have lost their leaves, her foliage turns into shimmering, golden, needles and lights up the forest in a final farewell. She will pass the hard northern winter naked but with the strength and serenity of one who knows that even the hardest of times will change.
This price is for 10 pellets in a Glass Vial sealed with Bee's Wax and a packet of Faery Larch Wands
