Sacred Frankincense Incense (50g). Comes in foil ziploc pouch with two charcoal discs.

We are students of the ancient mysteries of ancient Europe from the folk magic to high theurgy. The Hermetic arts are those of Mercury/Odin and the ancient gods of magic but are often blended with poisonous doctrines of artificial gods and parasitic constructs. The true magic and pharmakon is the study of the correspondences in elevating the soul towards the gods. We hope to provide the purest, organic or wildcrafted theurgical incenses, herbs and ritual paraphernalia. We open our shop with the sacred frankincense, an herb native to the Hyperborean homelands that brought our tradition of Mystery School. It is of the finest quality, sun dried and therapeutic/ritual grade. This is a magical incense wherever it is encountered, from the soul-recalling incenses of Daoists to its use in liturgies to intoxicate the faithful with analogs of more serious entheogens. There is a definite shift in mood to the subtle spiritual realms. The chemicals can mimic cannabis in the brain, and it imparts a deep reverence. The aroma of pure frankincense is the foundation of many of the ritual blend and speak to the ancient incense trade that finds this resin at the core of so many mystical traditions. The studies of the migration routes of incenses and entheogens and alchemy in the ancient world shows a vast trade network of mercury, mushrooms, alchemical glass, herbs and resins along the old trade routes. The mystery of gods spread in the migrations, especially the Indo-Europeans who brought their doctrines, astrotheology, initiatory rites and ancient initiatory centers. We will be posting much more information, incense ingredients and special blends

“Having become tranquil (ἀκλινής: unswerving, steadfast) through god, father, I no longer place things before my mind with the sight of my eyes, but with the mental energy that comes through the powers [of divine gnosis]. I am in heaven, in earth, in water, in air; I am in animals, in plants; I am in the womb, before the womb, after the womb; I am everywhere.”

Ἀκλινὴς γενόμενος ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ, ὦ πάτερ, φαντάζομαι, οὐχ ὁράσει ὀφθαλμῶν ἀλλὰ τῇ διὰ δυνάμεων νοητικῇ ἐνεργείᾳ. ἐν οὐρανῷ εἰμι, ἐν γῇ, ἐν ὕδατι, ἐν ἀέρι· ἐν ζῴοις εἰμί, ἐν φυτοῖς· ἐν γαστρί, πρὸ γαστρός, μετὰ γαστέρα, πανταχοῦ.

— Corpus Hermeticum XIII.11

“Make yourself grow to immeasurable immensity, outleap all body, outstrip all time, become eternity and you will understand God. Having conceived that nothing is impossible to you, consider yourself immortal and able to understand everything, all art, all learning, the temper of every living thing. Go higher than every height and lower than every depth. Collect in yourself all the sensations of what has been made, of fire and water, dry and wet; be everywhere at once, on land, in the sea, in heaven; be not yet born, be in the womb, be young, old, dead, beyond death. And when you have understood all these at once — times, places, things, qualities, quantities — then you can understand God.”

— Corpus Hermeticum XI.20

Iamblichus (c. 240 – c. 325 CE) writes of the practice of theurgy that “the primary beings illuminate even the lowest levels, and the immaterial are present immaterially to the material. And let there be no astonishment if we speak of a pure and divine form of matter; for matter also issues from the father and creator of all, and thus gains its perfection, which is suitable to the reception of gods….

“Observing this, and discovering in general, in accordance with the properties of each of the gods, the receptacles adapted to them, the theurgic art in many cases links together stones, plants, animals, aromatic substances, and other such things that are sacred, perfect, and godlike, and then from all these composes an integrated and pure receptacle.”

— Iamblichus, On the Mysteries V.23, translated by Clarke, Dillon, and Hershbell (2003):

A fragment of the Chaldean Oracles (#224) gives part of the technique, reportedly revealed by the Goddess Hekate:

But execute my statue, purifying it as I shall instruct you. Make a form from wild rue and decorate it with small animals, such as lizards which live about the house. Rub a mixture of myrrh, gum, and frankincense with these animals, and out in the clear air under the waxing moon, complete this (statue) yourself offering the following prayer.[16]
