A Hymn to Clary Sage....

This incense is for those who like the sweet, dark fragrances of the dream world, who dance in the moon shadows on a full moon night, and who abandon themselves to love.  The ingredients  are the result of my experiments with trying to capture the musky, sweet fragrant song of Clary Sage. 

Clary Sage is a moon plant and is best harvested and distilled under the full moon light when its seeds are milky, its plant body and flowers glistening with fragrant resin.  In unique alchemical distillations, performed in the high, summer's moonlight I captured the spirit of Clary in Black Storax and Black Frankincense that was harvested in the Mountains of the Moon both clarified resins melting into a bed of Hawaiian sandalwood in the column of my copper alembic.  A touch of ebony vanilla provided by a stygian Benzoin rounds out my dance with Clary Sage.

 

Distillation in the Moonlight


 

Ingredients:

Clary Sage flowers and stems (Salvia sclarea) from my garden

Hawaiian Sandalwood wood (Santal Paniculatum) sustainably harvested

Dark Frankincense resin (Boswellia sacra) wild harvested from the Mountains of the Moon in Oman

Black Storax bark and sap (Liquidamber orientalis)

Styrax Benzoin resin from Sumatra

 

From Katlyn:

This rare blend is a fragrant jewel, a fresh sweetness that transports like moonlight. I had no idea how delicate and beautiful Clary Sage could be in an incense! I hope that Be will make us more moon magick ...
