Adonis Samhain and Adonis Beltane

2 parts myrrh (sweet myrrh if you can find it) 1 part bay leaf

1 part gum arabic

1 part red rose petals or 9 pomegranate seeds (depending on the season) Enough Adonis or myrrh oil to bind

If you are making and using this mixture between Samhain and Beltane, use the pomegranate seeds. If you are making and using it between Beltane and Samhain, then use the rose petals. Incidentally, with pomegranate seeds, this is an excellent choice of incense for all matters of death, and makes a wonderful general incense choice for Samhain. The same is true of the version with rose petals and Beltane, or celebrations of life's victory over death. The pomegranate seeds represent the cold darkness of death that is necessary to bring the warm light of life. Each is necessary for life to continue.

An offshoot of this recipe is "Life and Death incense/tincture." Instead of choosing between rose petals and pomegranate, combine nine pomegranate seeds with one-half ounce rose petals. Then, add that mixture to an ounce of myrrh or sweet myrrh and a half ounce of both bay and gum arabic.
