Blood in Incense

Recently I read the book Hecatean Magick by B. Morland  This book contains several entries for different types of incense.  Today I wanted to share with you a few of the recipes.  First let's look at the template incense.

Temple Incense - page 80 Hecatean Magick

1 part Frankincense
1 part Copal
1 part Amber
1 part Sandalwood
A few drops of blood

War Incense - page 73 Hecatean Magick
2 part Black Pepper
1 part Cayenne
1 part High John the Conqueror root (powered)
1 part Sulfur
A few drops of blood to strengthen
A few drops of urine

The common element in them all is blood.  I have used blood drops in many of my spell work but never have seen it used in incense.  I'm interested to see if anyone has used these recipes or have the created any incense for Hecate or any other deity that utilizes blood.

The Sanctuary of Hecate Trivia Website Launched

It is a great day for the sanctuary today.  The website is up and running.  It is our first official web presence and we hope that you love it!  We added a donation link for those that might want to support our goals for the future of the sanctuary.  Over the next few years look for the following:

  1. A center fire pit that will be available for ritual use by local covens.
  2. A permanent altar space with offering dishes.
  3. An elevated walkway throughout the sanctuary that end in directional altars.
  4. Assorted benches along the walk way.
  5. A Native American inspired medicine wheel.

Any one of these items will be a fundraising task, but we will take each as it comes.  We will also need to clean up the area.  There is some yard work, building skills and of course haul off that will be required.  We will look to area covens who would like to support the space by offering their services to help us get the area ready for rituals.
