Late Summer Incense Recipe
This blend is useful when practicing any kind of dream magic, whether you seek answers to a question, prophetic dreams or desire to "venture forth" while sleeping. The formula contains herbs that open the gates to dreams as well as those that have sedative properties. In addition many of the ingredients are classically associated with Summer and the Fey.
Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp Sandalwood
  • 2 tsp Lavender
  • 2 tsp Mugwort
  • 2 tsp Chamomile
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tsp Benzoin
  • pinch Oregano
  • 1/8 tsp Guar Gum

Finely powder all ingredients, and then add just enough warm water to give the blend a consistency reminiscent of modeling clay. Form into tall thin cones, the diameter of which should be no bigger than a pencil at the widest point. Also, tightly form the cone to avoid cracks. Cracks will get bigger as the cone dries and prevent the finished cone from burning. Allow them to dry in a cool environment and then enjoy.
