Surrealist Darling: Frida. Powdered Incense: Large Jar
During the summers of 2016, I visited two shops, Sword & The Rose in San Francisco & Enchantments in NYC and fell in love with powdered incense. Although the incense in these shops is more geared towards meditation, devotion & ritual work, I sought out to create my own that was only scent oriented. I met with Christina of Three Ravens co and expressed my desires and encouraged her to conjure our own blends. She undertook the task and toiled away learning all the details and came back with an amazing powdered incense that compliments the candle scents of the same names.
-Handmade in Philadelphia by Three Ravens Co.
-Burn within a heat safe dish or on a heat safe surface ( Such as our ceramic plates )
-Self-igniting, these do not need to be sprinkled over charcoal tabs but can be lit with a match or lighter and then blown out to produce scented smoke ( unlike other powdered incenses, these need to be blown out after a significant flame is achieved. )
-For larger plumes of smoke, a charcoal tab can be used. Sprinkle liberally over a heated charcoal tab in a heat safe dish or on a heat safe surface.
-Use a small spoon to remove incense & pinch together on surface making a cone shape for more throughout burning.
- Presented in a glass jar with sealing lid to keep the scent fresh.
-Label artwork by artist Aaron Horkey, engraved in metallic ink at Studio On Fire, both Minneapolis based
- Listing includes one 8 oz jar of powdered incense
review via S. Elizabeth:
In the jar, the vibrant red hue and the cinnamon rich, dragon’s blood sticky sweetness is a bold testament to the intensity of this blend. Once lighted it is no less potent, but with an odd sense of mischief becomes an earthy, medicinal aroma with hints of fabric and musk; of cloth worn close to the skin and with all of the sweet, strange, musky physicality that might cling to such adornment.
