DIY Summer Solstice Loose Incense Recipe

DIY Summer Solstice Incense Recipe

The Summer Solstice marks the longest day of the year and for many of us is a time to relax, catch some solar rays, and to celebrate life. Around June 21st, the sun will be the closest to the earth and now is the perfect time to harness those solar energies for manifestation work.

One of my favorite things to do during this time is to connect to the energies of earth and fire, through the crafting of homemade incense.  

Below you will find one of my recipes for a loose incense blend, perfect for Summer Solstice celebrations and rituals.
