Songwriter's Retreat Toolkit
Here at ASR we are ALL about the importance of writing and retreating so we have created a special lil toolkit to help you zen out in your special space. First things first, if you haven't created that special space, go and do that! This tells your brain and body that you mean business and you are being intentional about your craft (and others as well). It doesn't have to be a huge area, maybe it's just a special chair in the corner of a room with a small table for your cuppa, a candle, a throw rug and a foot stool. Maybe your guitar is at your side. Maybe you're near a window with a vista. Maybe you have some trinkets that are important to you. This is your space.
We LOVE Tinderbox products because they are "al la natural" AND a local business here in WA. This delicious toolkit comprises of:
Tinderbox Holy Incense
Breathe Free Herbal Tea
Divine Travel Balm
Essential Oil and Incense Burne
Tinderbox Holy Incense 50g
Fill your chosen environment with this pure, cleansing and inspiring fragrance. Smoke inhaled from chosen plants, resins and pure essential oils blended in this natural incense will evoke a reverent atmosphere for both festive and ritual occasions. Ideal for creating your own sacred space for meditation, yoga or self enquiry and enhancing your spiritual journey.
Tinderbox incense is also a powerful antiseptic fumigant for the air. Use for clearing.
This incense is unique in that it is pure plant materials in granule form. Place a teaspoon of incense in an oil burner dish (do not add water) and ignite candle for a slower, economical and subtle burn. For a quicker, more dramatic burn, place incense on a small dish, shape into a cone and ignite directly. Douse the flame to create a burning ember. Re-ignite at intervals if required. You can also burn this incense on a charcoal block, or on top of a wood stove.

Essential Oil and Incense Burner Soapstone Square with Round Arch
For thousands of years the aromatic smoke of incense has ascended, symbolically merging materia and non-material realms of being in its diffuse, spiralling, vaporous cloud. It has signified the fragrant and sensual conjunction in the ceremonial, meditation and rites of worship: '. . . let my prayer be set forth in your sight as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.' (Psalm 141).
