Beccah Posted October 3, 2012 Share Posted October 3, 2012 Espiritual Our olfactory interpretation of this pious observance features traditional ingredients which when combined create a unique scent only experienced one day of the year, symbolizing its mysteries and its blessings…spicy geranium and crisp sage mingle with the resinous depth of myrrh and Mexican copal and a waft of sacramental smoke. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: GERANIUM ~ Cleansing, hex-breaking, protection, peace of mind, stability of emotions; love, healing, fertility.COPAL ~ Love, purification, cleansing.MYRRH ~ Stimulating, soothing. Powerful guard against evil.SAGE ~ Healing, prosperity, cleansing. Wisdom, longevity, protection, wishes granted.SMOKE ~ In addition to the attributes of whatever is being burned (resins, woods, etc), smoke is for cleansing, purification, renewal, consecration, concealment and celebration.
