- Wild Fennel / Incense Locally harvested natural scented incense – 25g Fennel is a flowering perennial of the Apiaceae genus with a sweet, resinous scent that is often confused with aniseed. Traditionally used as an insect repellent, it is also a component of Royal Wedding bouquets and is used in perfumery and as a food ingredient. In Europe, it was much used in a mixture called gruit as a flavouring for beer from the Middle Ages to the 16th century, but has fallen into disuse after hops became more widely available.

- Juniper Incense Cones 25g - Juniper grows in the form of around 52 different species which have each adapted to changing conditions around the world, Juniperus refers to Juniper as a whole which is then individually characterised regionally. The coastal form of Juniper in our cones grows as a low and dense bush with bluish berries and dark green needle like leaves, it is a hardy perennial which has adapted to the shore line environment to be substantial enough to cope with the salt water and strong winds. Juniper berries are used in a wide variety of culinary dishes and for a distinct flavouring in gin as well as the primary flavour in the liquor Jenever.
- Lemon Balm Incense Cones 25g - These wooden incense cones fill your home and space with the scent of fresh lemon grass. Lemon Balm grows to 70–150 cm tall with oil rich leaves that a gentle lemon fragrance will come off onto your hands when crushed. Melissa officinalis is in the mint family of Lamiaceae which reflects this high oil content and naturally fragrant quality. The white summer flowers attract bees, hence the genus name Melissa (Greek for ‘honey bee’) whilst high doses of purified lemon balm extracts have been found to be effective in the relief of stress, producing increased calmness and reduced alertness.
Bog Myrtle locally harvested natural scented incense – 25g
Bog Myrtle thrives in the harsh conditions of the northern hemisphere with a long history of being found on the hard to reach paths of mountainous regions and at the top of cliffs along the coastline. It has been used as an insect repellent for these reasons: its location means that walkers and explorers come across the plants when they are being attacked by midges and other insects finding that Myrica gale is proficient in keeping them at bay. The aroma is sometimes comparable to that of cloves and is often used in flower bouquets for its fragrant qualities which compliment other floral scents.
