Swedish Apothecary Incense
This incense is a reproduction of traditional Species Fumales incense, found in Pharmacopaeja Holmiensis Galeno-Chymica, published 1686. It was subsequently published in Pharmacopoea Suecica in 1775 and upon it’s 8th printing retitled Svenska Farmakopén in 1901. This recipe can be found in copies of Svenska Farmakopén until the 1930s.
The complex aroma evokes memories of Swedish cottages in the 1700s. Contains warming notes of cinnamon & clove, juniper, bergamot and a number of resins and herbs. Excellent for ritual meant to call in good spirits and loving ancestors. The inclusion of rose and lavender imbues it with properties of relaxation, so we recommend it’s fumes fill ones house just before bedtime in the deep of midwinter. Can be burned on coals or boiled in a pot for best results.
Love the hand-poured, intentional candle works from Needfire Candle Co. of Portland, ME. In an effort to create more transparency, sustainability, and ethicality, Needfire uses Beeswax as a base for their products, and directly source from many domestic and international beekeepers that are adding to the population growth of specific regional bees. They focus on sourcing wax exclusively from small producers - from small farms, mobile pollinator services, and small companies that help apiaries process their honey so they can sell the leftover wax for them. All around amazingness!
