In Norse mythology, Hel Lokidottir is known as Hela and is regarded as a half-goddess and jΓΆtunn, or giant. She is the daughter of Loki and Angrboda and has two siblings, Fenrir and JΓΆrmungandr. Hel is the queen of the realm of the dead and is responsible for overseeing those who passed away peacefully from old age or illness, as well as children and women who die during childbirth. She is a compassionate guide for those who do not choose the path of violence and war, leading them through the circle of death to rebirth.

Hela makes her home in Helheim, the lowest world located at the roots of the World Tree. She is known to take in and care for all souls who pass away in a "straw death" - a death that is not in physical combat. In the Northern Tradition, Death is not considered evil but rather a natural part of the cycle of life. Hela is depicted as half dead and half alive, with a face that is both beautiful and horrific in form. She does not shy away from the true nature of death and decay, seeing it as sacred, just like any other part of life.

Hela's followers speak of her great transpersonal compassion and believe that she never speaks a lie. She is typically shown as one part beautiful woman and one part skeleton or rotting corpse. Her sacred colors are black and white, and her sacred plants include wormwood, Elder trees, rue, belladonna, and Hellebore, among others. The name Hel means "hidden," referencing the fact that the souls of the dead are invisible to the living.

Incense Cone Burning Instructions:

πŸŒ› Prepare a place to set your incense cone after it is lit. You should pick a fireproof surface that won't be damaged by heat or direct fire, such as an incense burner specially made for burning incense cones, foil on top of the sand in a large clay or metal container, Anything that's heat-resistant and will hold the cone is a suitable container. Make sure you place the container away from anything flammable, such as curtains, lampshades, or paper.

πŸŒ› Light the smallest end of the incense cone at the tip. You will want to keep the end lit with a flame on it for 30-60 seconds, or until the tip of the cone glows orange *all the way across it* when the flame is extinguished. You want a nice, solid orange glow at the top of the incense cone - once you've established a nice solid orange glow on the top, extinguish the flame by blowing it out, or using a candle snuffer if you prefer. If it is not lit thoroughly before extinguishing the flame, your cone will not burn, it will just go out, so keep it lit with a flame until you achieve that solid orange coal burning.

πŸŒ› After getting the top lit with a strong orange burn and then extinguishing the flame itself, set the incense cone down on your prepared surface or incense cone burner and enjoy!

All incense will produce smoke, but our incense smoke is only pure fragrance, unlike most incense which is made mostly of wood filler. Without wood filler, you get pure fragrance!
