Sun Incense – Recipe

The winter solstice–the longest night of the year–nourished hope for the return of the sun. Make and burn this sun incense in honor of the day. This incense is used to bring out the sun in human beings because sunlight brings out the green power (chlorophyll) of the plants.

INGREDIENTS

3 parts frankincense
