Invite calming and relaxing energy into your Sacred Space with our Black Styrax Resin Incense, from Esoteric Aroma.
Black Styrax or Storax was known in ancient Egypt as 'Miniaki' which translates as "festive fragrance". Since ancient times this resin has been used to create an environment of calm and relaxation and is also said to be an aid for insomniacs. It is burnt to protect against negativity in many magical traditions and has a sensual, loving and inspiring quality.
Black Styrax is made by boiling the bark of the storax calamitos tree, pressing it to remove the water, then using alcohol extraction to produce the pure resin. The resin is then soaked back into the charcoaled bark. It produces a warm, balsamlike, sweet, flowery, intense and slightly grassy fragrance.
A little goes a very long way with this resin and can be burned on a charcoal disc available here.
