Hekate Einodia, lovely dame of the Tri-via,
of earthly, oceanic, and celestial power,
sepulchral, in a saffron veil attired,
celebrating the Mysteries among the Spirits of the Dead.
~Orphic Hymn to Musaeus
The idea for this incense came to me after the Hecate ritual at the Between the Worlds gathering in 2006. It is an incense comprised of saffron, opoponax, and sacred woods, meant to be burned on Her altars during Her rituals and as an offering. Unlike many of our incenses which can also be used for some other purposes, this is a specific blend only for use on Her altars. Because of the delicate nature of the saffron scent, it is best burned on foil placed over the depression in self-lighting charcoals or over a candle flame.
