Sea Salt infused with fresh rose petals
Kyphi d’Amour is an incense made and aged many months in the traditional Kyphi method. It’s formula is based around many of the fragrant ingredients used in the original Egyptian formulas for Kyphi, such as Frankincense, Myrrh, Benzoin, Storax, Labdanum resins, saffron, raisins and wine. To these traditional ingredients, I added Roses and other plants, many of which I grow in my gardens. The breaths of most of these plants have rose-like aspects which are known to open the heart and relieve stress.
Packed along with Kyphi d’Amour is sea salt which is scented with my garden-grown roses. Like creating Kyphi, scenting salts with botanicals is a long process. To create a truly lifelike scent, the process requires that you have fresh plants available. Not more than a half hour elapses between the time I pick the roses and I press them in the salt and seal the container. Over months, the scent of the rose petals is slowly absorbed and preserved in the salt.
I recommend that you dissolve the rose salt in a foot bath or in a tub and relax in the warm water while heating Kyphi d’Amour near by. A soft rose scent will perfume the air and mix with the fragrance of Kyphi d’Amour. The healing powers of the salt and roses will enter your body through your skin while the incense penetrates through your nose. The sea salt can also be used as a delicate incense on a warmer. But, I really urge you to try the luxurious and healing ritual of a bath.
