Litha Crafts- Fire Incense

Merry Meet All,

Summer is when herbs and flowers are in abundance. Why not use some herbs to do crafts with to celebrate Litha?

Go out in your garden if you have one and select some herbs that correspond with Litha. You can make an incense from them, a potpourri or a herbal infusion. Here are the steps to make an incense from herbs. You can decide if you want to make some loose incense or make it into a cone or stick incense.

As you mix your incense, focus on your intent. Litha is about the sun and fire. Focus on that as you blend your incense.

Use myrrh, apple blossoms, bay leaves, cinnamon, chamomile, lavender, mugwort and rosemary. Add your ingredients one at a time. Measure carefully, and if your ingredients need to be crushed, then use your mortar and pestle. Fill the herbs with your intent as you mix them. Try saying an incantation, such as:

By the power of these herbs
born of fire and earth
For Litha, herbs of power,
As I will it, so shall it be.

Keep the incense in a dry clean sealed jar. Label the jar with its intent and name, as well as the date of creation. Use within three months, so that it remains charged and fresh.

Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch
