Olde Tyme Baccy Klaus: The Smoking Man's Christmas Incense
Previous Editions Sold Out
The night was black and covered in a blanket of snow. The children peered out of the windows, searching for a sign. Soon, their hearts jumped with excitement and their eyes sparkled in wonder as they heard the happy songs and jolly laughs echoing throughout the village. Baccy Klaus had finally come, with his rosy cheeks, glassy eyes, and pipe packed to the brim. All around the air was filled with the intoxicating scent of tobacco and incense. Christmas had finally arrived!
"Olde Tyme Baccy Klaus" was a direct off-shoot of "The Smoking God" incense blend. I wanted to take the basic formula and use it to create an incense dedicated to the old smoking man of Christmas lore. While "The Smoking God" was basically an aromatic blend, I wanted this creation to pack more of a punch, though without the addition of Opium that would normally be present in such a blend. The aroma ended up being rich and earthy with a nice hint of sweetness and spice. It will be curious to see how this blend develops in the future.
For those following more esoteric paths, this blend would work well for smudging purposes and as an offering to the spirits of the winter nights.
Contents included:Amanita muscaria (Fly Agaric), Boswellia carteri (K'eyi It'an Frankincense), Cinnamomum verum (Cinnamon), Hierochloe odorata (Sweet Grass), Myroxylon balsamum var. pereirae (Balsam of Peru), Nicotiana spp. (Pipe Tobacco), Peganum harmala (Esphand), Vanilla planifolia (Vanilla), etc.
