Sweet Medicine - Honey Amber/ Sweet Grass
Back at last, a fragrant favorite!
A blend very close to my heart. I think you will sense the love that went into its creation.
It is called “Sweet Medicine” because its main ingredients are Sweet Grass, healing Honey Frankincense, and Nepalese Rhododendron Flowers, all traditional healing botanicals I have also added the richness of Propolis that adds a bee-like animalic amber scent that is really a perfect touch. The overall effect is very honey-like.
Sweet Grass (ground fine, not easy to do:)
Propolis Mellifera (a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. It is used to seal the hive)
Black and Honey Oman Frankincense
Golden Benzoin ground with Tolu Balsam
Rhododendron Flowers from Nepal
The sweet grass brings a natural vanilla Coumarin sweetness that can be described as new-mown hay. Sweet grass was, and is, very widely used by North American indigenous peoples. It is one of the "four sacred medicines", the other three being cedar, sage, and tobacco. In Native American spirituality, sweet grass is the sacred hair of Mother Earth; its sweet aroma reminding native people of the gentleness, love, and kindness she has for them.
Mermade tries to bring together the best of diverse traditions to create cross-cultural incense blends for mind, body, and spirit.
