He is the sap within the trees, the green of the leaves, he is power that sprouts and grows, that covers mother earth in bright green clothes. The green man is the life-force of nature that fertilizes the earth. Each year in spring he is reborn, and with him all of nature awakens and blooms. When autumn comes around, he retreats deep into the earth womb. Here his potency regenerates until he is ready to re-emerge once more the following spring, when the cycle starts all over again. Burn this incense to tune into the potent life-force, the creative potential of the male aspect of nature.
The Gods delight in beautiful scents and incense is their sacred ambrosia. The ancient practice of burning incense as an offering to the Gods has been practiced by cultures all around the world since time immemorial. The fragrant smoke carries our prayers to the heavens. It is a pathway of communication with the Gods. Not to burn incense is like starving the Gods of their favourite food and amounts to cutting ourselves off from our spiritual source. The Gods depend on our offerings as we depend on their divine graces.
Star Child's range of spiritual incense is dedicated to the God and Goddess in all their different guises. Burn them as offerings to the divine beings and to attune to their guiding voices within. Or, use them as an offering to the Earth when you honour the spiritual dimension of the manifest universe.
HOW TO BURN INCENSE:
Place a self-igniting charcoal disc on a fire-proof surface, well away from flammable objects. The charcoal disks can be ignited simply by holding a match or lighter to the rim. Be aware that these discs may occasionally spit and sparkle profusely upon ignition. Allow plenty of air to flow around the charcoal to ensure that it burns evenly. Some people prefer to open the window while the charcoal is igniting as it gives off quite a bit of smoke. Once the charcoal disc has finished sparkling it will start to glow, usually first on one side, then slowly spreading over the whole disc. When the entire disc is glowing red hot it is ready to use and you can place a little pinch of incense on top. As the disk glows through, the fire will concentrate in its centre. You may occasionally want to scrape off the ashes to expose the glowing centre and add fresh incense as desired.
CARE FOR YOUR INCENSE:
Incense keeps well and often improves with age if kept in a cool and dark place. Charcoal, on the other hand, does not, as it has a tendency to absorb moisture from the air. Once the packet has been opened, keep it in an airtight container to preserve its self-igniting properties.
Keep incense and charcoal out of pet's and children's reach. Charcoal discs are highly flammable. PLEASE BE CAREFUL when igniting your charcoal disc. Once the disc has been lit do not touch it, as it will cause a burn. Make sure your incense dish is fire proof and does not conduct heat to the surface on which it stands. Glass (even glass ashtrays) will break. Do not dispose of the remaining ashes in a waste paper bin or plastic garbage bin as it may cause a fire. Do not hold the disc in your hand while lighting or burning.
