Midsummer Night’s Dream Incense

Continuing the Midsummer thoughts, today I’m sharing a self-burning incense recipe we formulated several years ago for a workshop we offered at Pagan Spirit Gathering.

This blend is useful when practicing any kind of dream magic especially when you seek answers for a question or prophetic dreams. The formula contains herbs that help open the gates of dream as well as those that have sedative properties, so we call it Midsummer Nights Dream.

2 Tbsp White Sandalwood
2 tsp Lavender
2 tsp Mugwort
2 tsp Chamomile
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Benzoin
pinch Dittany of Crete
pinch Yarrow
1/8 tsp Guar Gum

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