Acacia Gum Sacred Herb


Use for protection, healing and prosperity, for spiritual grounding, and for fertility.

Acacia Gum is a golden yellow resin (also known as Gum Arabic) with a glassy appearance and a light woody fragrance. It comes from several species of acacia native to North Africa, and the bush was believed to house a particular goddess who was able to encourage fertility in women and to heal in general. In ancient Egypt it was traditionally used in the embalming process, and in the wider ancient world it was an important ingredient of magic and medicine. It also has excellent binding properties and is useful as a fixative for essential oils.

How to use sacred herbs and resins

Place a charcoal disc on a fireproof surface away from anything flammable. A ceramic or metal dish containing some sand is ideal.
Hold a match or a lighter to the rim of the disc, taken care as the disc may spit and spark on ignition. Also allow a good air flow around the disc so that it can burn evenly, and be aware that it may give off quite a lot of smoke.
Once the disc is red hot and glowing, drop a pinch of the incense on the top.
Scrape off the ashes from time to time to expose the glowing centre of the charcoal disc and add more incense as required.
NEVER hold a lit disc in your hand, and dispose of spent discs carefully.
