Storax Sacred Herb


Use in conjunction with dream or astral work.

Storax lignum is a black substance, slightly moist, and has a warm, balsamic fragrance. Magically it is associated with Hecate (the Goddess of Witchcraft), and is often used to call upon her powers.

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.
