Burning Incense is an ancient practice used to cleanse and purify a space, connect to spirit, and become more grounded. As we enter into Winter we are slowing down, turning inward, reflecting, and giving gratitude for all we have received. Herbal incense can be a supportive tool as the wheel of the year turns. Herbalist and Boss Witch Jules Benefico helps us welcome in Winter ritually by connecting with herbs, resins, and roots to celebrate the season of wisdom, transformation, and rebirth.
The Winter Solstice also called Yule in European pagan traditions is the rebirth of the Sun and each day after it begins to get a little lighter again. It is the darkest and shortest day of the year and a reminder to go slower, look within, and reflect.
