The launch of the 12 new Stick Incense begins today. These new blends add to the 12 Stick Incense launched last fall. This brings the total count of the product line to 129 individual items. I do believe I'll be taking a break from new product creation for a while now.
12 New Stick Incense:
I'm so excited to announce that my book 'A Year In A Druid Grove: Celebrating the Seasonal Festivals on the Wheel of the Year' is published and ready for sale!
It's available in a paperback edition, as well as a Kindle edition.
Immerse yourself in the Druid Tradition with this collection of celebratory rituals that explore the various mythologies behind these rites, while creating connections to the natural world.
A Year In A Druid Grove gives the reader a wide and varied selection of rituals to perform or adapt to suit their preferences and needs. The reader is given a rich tradition that even includes the blending of Druid and Wiccan practises, showing that the Druid Tradition is a living, evolving, and adaptable path that many can easily walk upon.
With three rituals given for each of the eight seasonal festivals, what the reader will learn is how varied and rich the Druid Tradition is, and as it's a spiritual path, how easily Druidry can be adapted to blend with other paths. A few of the rituals in this book have been blended with Wicca, for example, making this book just as useful for Wiccans as for Druids. The reader will also learn how easily it is to adapt one ritual to accommodate a smaller group, a different myth, or focus of the ritual. This is a small book, but full of endless possibilities.
Whether they're a Druid, Wiccan, or Eclectic Neo-Pagan, new on the path or experienced, those interested in nature spirituality will find this book to be a valuable resource.

Today we're going to look at the ways you can use the Planetary Loose Incense, and for this example, let's use the Venus Loose Incense.
You can burn this incense as an offering to a Goddess or God associated with Venus, or to invoke them: Venus, Aphrodite, Ishtar, Isis, Pan, etc.
The same can be done when working with the spirits, intelligences, angels, etc. of Venus
You want to do a spell for love but you do not have Love Loose Incense, so you substitute with the Venus Loose Incense. The Love Loose Incense is the better choice since it is specific to the working you will be doing, but as Venus is the Goddess of Love, it would be a better choice than going with a more general magical incense.
Now let us say that you enjoy all the pomp and circumstance that goes with ritual. You can get really creative with this incense. Let us use the love spell example one more time, but in this scenario you have the Love Loose Incense. Firstly, you use either a small amount of Love Loose Incense or Clearing Incense to cleanse and purify the space during your opening ceremony. Then, you add some of the Venus Loose Incense and invoke a Goddess or God of love to add power to your working. Once you move on to the love spell portion of the ritual, you add the Love Loose Incense to the incense burner. Once your working is complete and it is time to thank the God or Goddess, you can once again use a bit of the Venus Loose Incense as a thank you/offering, close your circle, and voila!
Sounds like overkill? The answer to that really depends on your personal preferences.
So in my mind, apparently being solely responsible for the production of 116 different products isn't enough, because I'm working on some new Stick Incense formulations. So far, so good, everything is turning out the way I want them to. Hopefully, come March, I'll have 12 new Stick Incense to offer all of you.
