Sacred Scents


In my sacred sanctuary - my woman cave - 

The Muse Room to be exact -



I love to create a certain ambience.

I'm at my best surrounded by candles, incense, and 
melodic tunes. 

From this place, I am at peace. I am creative.
I am balanced. I am whole. 
 I am fully me.
The other day my friend Michelle asked me
 "What incense do you burn?"

I rattled them off to her all excited.

I realized I have my go-to favorites.

Now I'm sharing with you.


Here are 
My Ultimate Incense Favs

I absolutely love incense from Escential Essences

My top 3 favs from Escential Essences are:

- Kachina Dreams (sacred sage & cedar)

Mystic Forest (very earthy and grounding-
not sure what all is in it)

- Buddhist Temple Blend (vetivert, cedar, sandal, and patchouli). 

I like them because they have a lasting smell.

They have an amazing selection and I love that each one has different attributes attached to it.

Locally, I can only find one store that sells Escential Essences.

Indo, located in downtown Asheville, is my shop for these favs. 


I use Kachina Dreams when I feel the house/me/room needs a deep energetic cleansing or I'm about to start a project. 

The Buddhist Temple Blend is good for 
meditation, reflection, and writing. 

Mystic Forest is very grounding and is good for everything - at least for me - I always need grounding



My other fav brand of incense is Satya. 

I prefer the nag champa in the yellow box 'cause it's not rolled in shit. Ha. Someone once told me the blue blox nag champa was "dirty and rolled in dung". I'm not sure the validity. However, the yellow box one is a "cleaner" burn. The box says Goloka. 


From that same company I am in love with the
Patchouli Forrest.

Again - very earthy. 
I'm drawn to the more cleansing/earthy scents 'cause they help balance and ground me. 

One other good one from Satya is Super Hit. 

I enjoy the lightness of it.

What incense do you burn?

What smells bring out certain feelings for you?

Share with me, I'd love to know.

Ostara~The Spring Equinox

Merry Ostara! 



Ostara Affirmation

I am the blossom of Spring and the sweet flower unfolding.

I am the leafy stalk that pushes through the ground to 
greet the brightness of the day.

I hold the power of creation in my hands, 
as I stand at the threshold between darkness and light.

I am balance and beauty becoming.

Blessed Be.

*************
It's the first day of spring, let's rejoice!

Ostara is my 2nd favorite Holiday...
the first being Halloween, of course.

*************

Ostara Significance: day and night are equal in length with the powers of light increasing, it is the return of life to the world

Magickal Energies: balance, fertility, prosperity

Symbols: colored eggs, seeds, spring flowers, white rabbits

Colors: lavender, light blue, light green, pink, yellow...think pastels

Trees: alder, dogwood

Flowers: lily, tulip

Herbs & Oils: honeysuckle, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lemongrass, orange blossoms, rose, sage, strawberry, violet, ylang ylang 

Stones: aventurine, agate, amazonite, clear quartz, rose quartz

Animals: baby chicks, eagle, rabbit

Foods: chocolate, eggs, ham, honey cakes, leafy green vegetables, seasonal fruits, seeds, spring salads, sprouts


*************
Today begins the waxing time of the year - 
time to set things in motion.

Every year on Ostara, I write myself an intention letter.

I fill it will my hopes, dreams, and goals for the year.
I open last year's letter, see where I stand,
and then I write my new letter for the year.

I found that this is the perfect time for me if I want to
implement any big changes in my life.

Now is the time to plant the seeds you wish to grow.

What do you wish to plant this year?

What growth would you like to see in your life?


Ostara is the time.

Happy Spring!
