  • Details
    Along with bathing fragrances, the Ancient Romans were also known for burning various raw materials in correspondence with the gods. Temples often burned Frankincense outside, Myrrh was burned as an offering to the gods on personal altars, cinnamon was burned at funerals to honor the dead & cover the scent of putrefaction. Although Frankincense & Myrrh were the most common resins burned, other found ingredients, like Cardamom, Florals, & Olive Branches were also burned in honor of divine festivities. Certain materials were also used to relate to & honor specific gods, like Myrtle for honoring Venus on Veneralia or Asafoetida Resin for honoring Saturn on Saturnalia.

    This incense contains ingredients often used by the Ancient Romans for burning & with properties related to the themes of Lupercalia:
