Our Sanctus NOX night soul-journey incense contains pure Myrrh powder, resin and wood blended with a high grade Frankincense and White Copal. When combined in ritual these aromatic gum produces a trance state that will aid in deepening your visions.



I have used and taught the NOX ritual has been a trance practicum since 1983. I chose Myrrh as the chief ingredient for the NOX ritual incense because of its power to invoke deep netherworld experiences. It is extremely strong, and it's recommended that you have good ventilation.


Myrrh is fragrant gum-resin extracted from several small, thorny tree species of the genus Commiphora. The word myrrh corresponds with a common Semitic root m-r-r meaning "bitter", and indeed the incense when burned gives off a bitter, woody ordour.


There's a distinct funereal aspect to the use of Myrrh from at least the time of the Ancient Egyptians, who employed it in their rituals and the embalming of mummies. 


The magickal correspondences of Myrrh include the colour black and the planet Saturn, who is also called Kronos or Time (i.e. chronology). Saturn corresponds to World card in the Tarot (Atu XX1), also called the Universe in the Thoth Tarot. Saturn also has correspondence with the chthonic, nigredo card, the Devil as Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn


Nigredo, or blackness is associated with decomposition and solve, the first stage in the alchemical process of transformation.
