Hildegard's Christmas Cookies Incense
Hildegard's Christas Cookie Incense
An "incense pearl" bend created at The Island Octopus Incensarium.
You will receive approximately 15 grams (0.52 ounces) of all natural resin-based incense housed in an aluminum tin with an illustrated label. The Island Octopus' "incense pearls" are hand-rolled for easy use with charcoal censers. We highly recommend trying them on electric incense warmers.
*** Blend description ***
Hildegard's Christmas Cookies originally appeared in various editions between 2010 and 2014 released as part of the "Yuletide Traditions" line from Ethereal Aromas Incense Company. This blend was originally inspired by the historical "Cookies for Preventing Sadness" from Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179). This new incarnation incorporates a more rounded out mix of resins and further additions to help bring out that cookie feel.
The recipe is primarily based in Omani Hojary frankincense with a couple other Boswellias added to the mix. The resin base is grounded with Sea-Kissed "sweet myrrh" Erythraea and bit of true Yemeni Commiphora myrrha, sweetened with a touch of Sumatran benzoin. A delectable blend of spice oils of cinnamon bark, nutmeg, ginger, clove, West Indian bay, star anise and orange have been infused into the resin mixture. Richened with butter CO2 and sugared with balsam and almond. Blended with fine white birch, cassia, and Aetoxylon "crocodile wood". Hand rolled in the original "Christmas cinnamon" Cinnamomum verum from Sri Lanka.
Hildegard's Christmas Cookie Incense is best experienced on an electric incense heater such as the legendary Golden Lotus heater. "Incense pearls" may be crushed before use to provide greater surface area. It also works excellently as a traditional "church" style altar incense using the traditional charcoal method. Please ask if you have any questions!
