Star Child

Myrrh Sacred Herb


Sacred herbs are sourced Star Child in Glastonbury, UK and bring together fragrant gums, resins and herbs from different regions and cultures to be honoured and used to get closer to the divine.

Burnt as an offering to the Sun-God Ra and in temples of Isis ancient Egypt, Myrrh also has origins in Ancient Greece as it was considered sacred to Adonis. Today, it is commonly used as an ingredient of healing and protection. Because of its pungent scent, Myrrh is usually used in combination with other herbs to increase the potency of a blend, rather than being burnt on its own.


Today, as in ancient times, we continue to use the fragrant smoke from incense in all its forms to fragrance and cleanse our living spaces, to relax and reduce stress, to stimulate, to help us sleep, to prepare for prayer or meditation, and to help the healing process.

How to Use
- Place a charcoal disc on a fireproof surface - 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.

Safety Tips
- Never touch lit charcoal
- Never leave burning incense unattended
- Keep away from flammable materials
- Keep out of reach of pets and children
- Always use in a well-ventilated area
