This incense celebrates
the figure of the Scarlet Woman, the Whore of Babylon from Revelations
whom Aleister Crowley renamed Babalon. She is the one who stands
beyond the Abyss, beckoning the Adept. Called "whore"
because she denies no one, she asks only the lifeblood of the Adept
in return, which she uses to produce the wine of the Sabbath. She
is often identified with Binah on the Tree of Life, but whereas
Binah is the Crone, dry and cold as any Saturnian phenomena,
Babalon is hot as blood. This incense is therefore composed of Binah's
myrrh warmed by nutmeg, pepper, angelica, and other warming herbs.
