75g of blended pine resin and pine needles and a charcoal disc to get you started


how to use -

in ritual to honour the land that we live on and invite in the energies of Scottish plants. on a heatproof surface (suggestion would be a stone of your choosing from the earth) place your lit charcoal disc on top of stone and sprinkle little bits of your loose incense onto the charcoal disc to release the smoky pine fragrance.


it is said that smoke carries the soul or the personality of the plant so as you witness and feel the smoke releasing, allow the personality and the healing powers of this beautiful evergreen ally to envelop you with the intentions you put into it. please try to always give thanks to the tree material and respect it with every use


pine is an evergreen and native to Scotland and therefore an ancient all year round protector and a symbol of immortality and eternal life, thus, the resin was and is used to purify, sterilize, and embalm things that need to be preserved over time and in the past - even the dead. bugs, mosquitoes and other creatures are sometimes caught in tree resin and preserved perfectly for thousands of years in an amber like substance.


one reason resin or sap is produced by the tree is when it is damaged - for example - somewhere the tree has been damaged or exposed, it will create this substance in order to protect itself and heal from its injury. i like to think of it like a natural plaster. this being the case, when I hand harvest, I harvest only from naturally damaged trees and I only take a very small percentage of the resin so that the tree can continue its healing. this takes a very long time but I am committed to respecting the trees where possible, thus these loose insences will only be available when I have resin and plant material to do so. slow living, respect for the land


pine watches as other plants rise and fall throughout the years and stands true and wise to its nature. it is firmly rooted into the earth and symbolises a deep grounded-ness, as do most trees


create ritual and use with deep reverence to this symbolism or explore the pines yourself and watch how your relationship unfolds and you create your own friendship with this powerful plant.
