Holiday, Seasonal, & Festival Incenses

These ritually hand-crafted incenses were created for use around holiday celebrations, seasonal festivals, Esbats, Sabbats, etc. Designed to aid in ritual, meditation, and offering practices, they are also appropriate for use during other times in the year, including for spellwork, or simply to enjoy their fragrance. As is true of all Alchemy Works incenses, these holiday blends are hand-compounded in our ritual space using only natural, botanical ingredients.

The celebration of the Full Moon is an ancient and hallowed tradition that continues today for a plethora of spiritual traditions. Our Full Moon Esbat Incense combines old-world healing herbs, exotic resins, and uplifting essential oils to aid your mystical and magical lunar rites. Organic lavender, mugwort, and rosemary mingle and dance with olibanum, storax, colophony and lotus flowers before being daubed with oils of a bright, invigorating, and third-eye-opening nature.

Line drawing of a witch flying against a full moonSabbat Flight
For a darker, wilder ride, harkening to bald mountains and windswept hilltops, our Sabbat Flight Esbat Incense follows the tradition of grounding before levitating towards the horizon. Saturnine patchouli and earthy fir balsam join forces with firey cedar and cloves. For resins, a combination of frankincense and opoponax be-brooms the mixture with blessings both celestial and infernal. Some mandrake tincture and henbane leaf add veneficium potency to the proceedings, and a special blend of essential oils deepens the heady bouquet.

Candle flameCandlemas
This Wheel-of-the-Year incense celebrates the festivals that fall halfway between Yule and the Spring Equinox on or around the start of February. Candlemas, Imbolc, St. Brigid's Day, Groundhog Day, and many others have their roots in winter celebrations of fire and purification, chasing away cold-weather doldrums and readying homes and hearths for the coming spring by cleansing and feasting with friends and kin. Frankincense, olibanum, colophony, and cinnamon set the fiery stage, while Elemi brings gusts of sweet Mercurial air. Sacred bdellium and patchouli ground, while lavender, lemongrass, and more herbal allies complete this incense's olfactory bounty.

crumbling temple ruins under night skyNemoralia
Named after the ancient August Holiday during which it was formulated, Nemoralia is designed to evoke an atmosphere of mystery and strength in honor of the Sacred Grove of Diana. As the Roman Empire expanded, more Goddesses were revered during the Nemoralia, such as Hekate and Artemis. Thus this incense is intended to also be used as a sacred offering throughout the year to these wild and mighty deities. Sandalwood, Fennel, Colophony, Damar, Spruce, White Pine and more wend their way through thick, evocative smoke dedicated to the Queen of Woods, Witchcraft, and Wild Things.
