If you’re as captivated by the magic and mystery of ancient Egypt as I am, I’ve got a SPECIAL treat for you. At long last, we made our own Kyphi Incense recipe! It’s the oldest known recorded recipe found on temple walls at Philae Island, Egypt – one dedicated to goddess Isis. Kyphi, which translates to “incense,” is considered the first incense created and a favorite of ancient Egyptians. Kyphi was burned ritualistically in every temple and household at dusk for evening rituals to cast out worries of the day and aid in dreamwork. Kyphi was also soaked in wine and consumed for remedial purposes. Some ancient Egyptians even burned Kyphi as a daily celebration of fragrance.
We created the recipe for Kyphi the old way, right here at Sage Goddess Headquarters, using the same components inscribed on the temple walls. It took us TEN DAYS using only the finest ingredients, which took over a month to collect. Kyphi has an intoxicating full-bodied aroma with a hint of sweetness and spice with notes of mastic, Aleppo pine, three different resins, mint, juniper berry, red wine, and a few more specialized ingredients, reduced and refined into this offering. Burn this incense to summon the magic and mystery of Kyphi.
The deeper magic of my Kyphi Incense
Did you know that incense was the first form of perfume? The word “perfume” literally means “through smoke,” and our ancestors used incense to scent their bodies. Ancient Egyptians and Romans would “perfume” the air with the incense they burned. They believed that the sacred smoke of incense would raise all surrounding vibrations and assist them in their magical practice. Burning incense is a great way to smudge and it connects us with the ancients in a powerful and beautiful way.
The magic of this incense lies in the ingredients: Mastic, Aleppo pine, three different resins, mint, juniper berry, red wine, and more. Mastic is like a magnifying glass for your intentions. It’s a magic intensifier and connects you with your inner power and deepest inner knowing. Mastic’s bright, radiant energy clears away old, stagnant energies. Aleppo pine, also known as Jerusalem pine, is a powerful bringer of wisdom and longevity. The pine tree plays an integral part in legends from all over the world and has been revered since ancient times for its qualities of strength and wisdom. Many cultures worship this sacred tree as a Divine being and its needles and sap have been used for centuries in witchcraft and healing. Mint purifies and refreshes energy. It relieves feelings of stress, fear, and pain, and clears negative vibrations. Mint is uplifting and rejuvenating and encourages acceptance and trust. Juniper berry is purifying, healing, and regenerating. It’s associated with fire and brings warmth, passion, and vitality. Juniper trees can grow where few other trees can, and despite challenging environments, they live long lives. Juniper berry reminds us of our own resilience, adaptability, and strength. Red wine has been used as an offering in ritual and sacred ceremonies for centuries. It symbolizes vitality, rebirth, happiness, love, and passion.
