The Potion Lady
Our Smudging Blends are meant to be burned on self-lighting charcoal rounds or bricks that are typically found in tobacco shops for use in hookahs (do *not* use barbecue charcoal).
When burning the herbal incense, the charcoal is lit and placed in a heat-safe container away from combustibles. (I have several, one of which is a flower pot half filled with soil, with a flat rock placed on top of the soil. I place the charcoal round directly on the flat rock for burning.) When the charcoal is “grayed” with a layer of fine ash on the outside of it, then it is ready for the incense. The herbal form – flowers, leaves, berries, roots – is placed in small pinches directly onto the burning charcoal. Add as much as you like. The charcoal typically burns for about an hour.
