Swedish Apothecary Incense
This incense is a reproduction of traditional Species Fumales incense, found in Pharmacopaeja Holmiensis Galeno-Chymica, published 1686. It was subsequently published in Pharmacopoea Suecica in 1775 and upon it’s 8th printing retitled Svenska Farmakopén in 1901. This recipe can be found in copies of Svenska Farmakopén until the 1930s.
The complex aroma evokes memories of Swedish cottages in the 1700s. Contains warming notes of cinnamon & clove, juniper, bergamot and a number of resins and herbs. Excellent for ritual meant to call in good spirits and loving ancestors. The inclusion of rose and lavender imbues it with properties of relaxation, so we recommend it’s fumes fill ones house just before bedtime in the deep of midwinter. Can be burned on coals or boiled in a pot for best results.
