    Talking Beginning Meditation -- Mugwort Incense

    So I'm starting to meditate and was curious as to how to make a good incense to burn with mugwort. I would like to have a good session and wanted to use incense to help enhance my experience and atmosphere. I have frankincense, opopopnax, and gum Arabic (?) as far as resins go. Also, lavender, marigold, sage, and jasmine. I'm open to any and all suggestions. ^_^



    Oh and it's good to be back.

    Welcome back, Nalia.

    You also have to take into account your own personal likes and dislikes. Sometimes, a stronger smelling incense hinders a meditation session - at least in my experience. I would suggest you start off with a little bit on charcoal and build up from there.
    It also really depends on what you want to achieve (calming, aid in astral work or lucid dreaming, psychic blends etc).
    I personally find mugwort works well with rose petals, chamomile, sandalwood, lavender, myrrh.

    Thank you. Thank you. ^_^ Please excuse my lateness in reply; work has been priority. I would like to see what it can do for lucid dreaming. And by "psychic blends" what do you mean?

    The blending of different psychic energies and types to form your own unique psychic power.

    Mugwort has helped with focus for me specifically. The dragon's blood is a booster of sorts. I have even drank just the mugwort it in tea for dream recall.

    I thought I'd give everyone who uses mugwort a little shout-out. It'll vary depending on your region, but now might be the time to be getting out and gathering the leaves it if you collect it wild. It matured early for us, so don't delay if you want the best crop! I only know because my sister cycles a lot and let my mum know, who then lovingly went out to collect some with my niece.
