Litha Incense Recipe





Litha is a Lesser Sabbat. Litha celebrates the Midsummer Solstice.  At mid-summer, the Sun God has reached the moment of his greatest strength. Seated on his greenwood throne, he is also lord of the forests. This is considered to be a time when energies abound, and is a good time for magic, purification rites and divination.  In many Wiccan celebrations, this is when the Oak King, who represents the waxing year, is triumphed over by the Holly King, who represents the waning year.

Litha is a wonderful time to dress the Altar with sunny golds, yellows and reds. Fill an offering bowl or your cauldron with wild flowers that abound in the hedgerows at this time of year and use white, yellow, red, orange or green candles on the Altar. It is a powerful time for love spells, wealth attracting spells or spell work focused on power.  You can blend your incense to suit your purpose, but here is a recipe for the
one I use.


Ingredients:

2 parts Copal
1 part Frankincense
1/2 parts Sandalwood
1/2 part Mugwort
1 part Chamomile
1 part Lavender
1/2 Yarrow

Method:

  1. Grind the Copal using a pestle and mortar until it looks like small pieces of gravel.  Place in a large container.
  2. Grind the Frankincense if it needs breaking down and add it to the container with the copal.
  3. Grind the Sandalwood using the pestle and mortar to break up the hard casing and release the energy.
  4. Grind each of the herbs in turn using the pestle and mortar, to break the outer coating and release the energy.  Add each one to the container with the resins.
  5. When all the herbs and resins have been ground and added to the container, stir the contents with your hands.  As you stir, close your eyes and picture The Solstice sun rising over the horizon, feel the first rays warm on your face, feel the life and the energy of the sun flooding over you and into you.  Feel the flow of the energy travelling down your arms, out of your fingertips and into the incense mixture.
  6. when you can't hold the image in your mind any more, open your eyes and jar up your incense ready for use or storage.

This recipe uses herbs suited to peace, healing, happiness and energy - all of which I need by June:).  If you want to tune yours more toward love, then either substitute some of the herbs with Rose petals and jasmine, or add a small amount to the blend.  Keep the Yarrow and Lavender.

For Wealth, use Basil and oak but keep the chamomile.

Wow our two incense burners arrived this morning and they are fabulous, much nicer than the photos (large patterned), we are thrilled with them. One is for us and the other is an initiation gift for someone next week. Thanks so much for sending them so quick - they arrived the next day! Great service, great product. There seems to be a national shortage of decent large burners at the moment, none on ebay, none on Amazon or anywhere. Your shop was the only one who stocked them. Many thanks
