Asclepius Incense + Powder
$30.00 – $90.00
A blend of consecrated herbs and resins consecrated to Asclepius as the Moon conjoined the fixed star of the Divine Physician, Ras Alhague, while applying to a trine with its ruler, the Greater Benefic, from the Nakshatra Ashwini — represented by eternally youthful twin doctors (Ashvins), who — in addition to tending to the health of the Gods, the sick, and the unfortunate, have further associations with medicine, good health, daybreak, and the sciences.
Rose of jericho, responsibly wildcrafted white sage, ritually harvested incense cypress, carnelian, and generous helpings of frankincense; ground into a fine powder that works equally well as an incense for smoke bathing the body (standalone or in ritual cleansings), offerings to Asclepius and healing Spirits, or a magical powder for dressing candles, adding to spell work, and sprinkling.
Use to clear and elevate icky energies, and to banish the Dead.
Arrives in a 1/2 oz glass vial with cork top for $30, or 2 oz bulk pot for $90.

This is becoming one of my ride or die offerings. I use this in floor washes, spiritual baths, burn as incense to cleanse spaces, use it to make homemade oils and tinctures…. the list goes on. The bulk pots are usually too much powder for me but this is definitely an exception.
I love everything from this series - the physical healing it has given me and my family has been utterly invaluable. I'm not going to repeat how good this series is for efficacy, I want to write about the powder. I had no idea how useful powders were before - sticking to topical Asclepius offerings (oil, salve, body butter, soap) since in my mind I needed Asclepius for physical issues (pain relief, eczema, other skin issues, etc). But this powder.. wow, I HAVE to get much more when my budget allows in the future. Add a bunch of powder to Arnica oil, and it is extra strong muscle/pain relief rub/oil! I addeed some to my eczema cream and it gave it extra oomph! Added some to my dandruff treatment... and again, it seems to add oomph. So the powder is super versatile, and I never thought of using like that before! Now I need way more powder.
After first interacting with this materia as an accompaniment to my Asclepius talisman, I decided to play around with it for smoke bathing during ritual cleansing. I am not exaggerating when I say this smoke will get whatever you are cleansing SQUEAKY CLEAN. It's no joke, powerful, caring, nurturing and powerfully cleansing on an energetic level. I've since bought more just because it's such a useful iteration that I don't really wan to be without it. The Asclepius line in general has yet to fail me, but this powder has become indispensable. It's highly effective and extremely easy to access, making it a go-to for moments when a friend or loved one asks for a little help (but are magically under-experienced so you don't want to overwhelm them). Also perfect for other more mundane uses, for example, I've recently been experimenting with using in clothing drawers mixed in to small sachets. As I mentioned the herbs smell wonderful and energetically encourages tidiness and organization.
I use this every night before bed. It is the cue to my body that it's time to settle in for the night and relax. This scent is powerful but gentle, reassuring and sweet. (I do hope the next round will be made with cultivated sage since wildcrafting sage is hurting the plant and the people for whom it is sacred.)
Extremely powerful spiritual purification ally. Definitely my go-to when I feel a heaviness or an ick lingering in a space…also incredible to use anytime after I clean my home, or for when my immune system is feeling just the slightest bit run down. Helps calm agitated states, and does seem to help clear unwanted spiritual energies from a space also.
I added this incense/powder to my cart on a whim, but it has turned out to be the most used materia I own, and the first thing I've finished and had to re-order. I find the scent so soothing and it's perfect for resetting the energy in a space, like a deep clean and a blessing in one. I did have some "healing crisis" side effects after heavily smoke bathing myself for the bathing ritual-- it brought on about a week of intense need for sleep, like 10+ hours every night and naps every afternoon! Since then I've gone with more frequent, lighter use, and I've upped my focus on other supportive activities, since obviously I was more burnt out than I wanted to admit. I feel like it's helping me pay better attention to caring for myself when I'd rather pretend I can power through. I've also dressed candles and used the incense in offerings, which was very helpful when both my parents had to have major surgeries this fall (both successful!). Bottom line, if I could only have one incense, it would be this one.
When my mom was in the hospital, I immediately placed an order for Asclepius powder and picked up some tea lights. I took a toothpick and carved out my mom’s name and HEALTH into the candle, filled in the letters with the powder, and lit the candle. My my healed so quickly. I’ve used it to dress candles since then for my son when he got sick and to add extra support to grieving family members. And being in its presence is very calming.
I love using this before cleansing. It smells ancient, and just smelling it I can feel the effects. This is my best ally for cleansing my aura and energy.
I have used this so far for only one purpose, and it has been to try and get the most out of the medications I need to take regularly. I sprinkled it liberally over my pill organizer, which is a set of 7 pods inside a larger container. I haven't had to re-apply the product but still feel the impact of it. It's not that the medication works better, but I seem NEVER to forget to take my medications now. In the past, that had been quite the issue for me!
I have used this powder in candle spells and in baths (the S+S bathing protocol is truly life changing even for a long-time witch). I felt invited to use it in a pretty major ritual that involved the bathing and was about dissolving the last bit of ties to a previous abusive relationship. As I was finishing the ritual, the bottle slipped from my hands and shattered on the floor! I felt truly that this was Asclepius showing me that I needed something a lot more intense than a sprinkle of the powder for the level of working I was doing! Anyway, I turned around and immediately ordered another powder. This (and the other items from the series) have been an absolute blessing. And that powder breaking dissolved those energetic ties so thoroughly I feel like I wouldn't even remember the ritual if the bottle hadn't broken. Praise Asclepius!
