My Paranormal Journey – Ashmore Estates – Part II
From Part One: There were also moments where Connor and Karl were completing each other’s sentences. We also experienced the light sensors lighting up in the hallway (set up to detect movement outside of the room), lights being blocked out, and a light behind me that kept turning on randomly, until it was unplugged and […]

Incense for your Witchcraft Altar
Burning incense is a traditional practice among diverse cultures worldwide. Different regions have produced and used different traditional incense varieties based on local plant life, which release aromatic smoke when burned or heated.
Long ago, sacred scents like frankincense resin and palo santo were used in religious rituals to serve as symbolic representations of divine intent, to create an atmosphere of holiness and solemnity, and to aid in inducing transcendent or ecstatic ritual states. Since then, while still common in religious and mystical contexts, the use of incense has developed to include a much broader variety of materials, methods, and motivations. For instance, cone incense and stick incense consisting of an all-in-one combination of aromatic herbs or oils, combustible material, and a binding material like gum arabic or guar gum can be lit in burners to produce fragrant smoke directly. Innumerable scents and colors are commercially available. Loose incense consisting of resins, wood, herbs, and other substances can be used together with charcoal discs to release their aromas.
Here at Sticks and Stones Magic, we offer a broad selection of incense in these various forms, as well as censers or burners to catch the ash and diffuse the heat from burning it, keeping your home and altar safe.
Discover Mortar and Pestle Sets
Mortar and pestles have been used since ancient times to grind and combine ingredients into a fine powder or paste. Depending on what you are grinding, there are many sizes, styles and materials available to the modern day witch. Today, they are generally used in grinding dried herbs, salts, dried flowers and other ingredients in spell work.
Wood - ideally used for softer ingredients. The wooden mortar and pestle is perfect for fresh herbs, fine-grain salts and wet ingredients. When choosing your wood mortar and pestle, look for treated hardwoods that won’t absorb odors or moisture. Hard ingredients (fennel seeds, rock salt, stone) can scratch and gouge wood mortars as their density is stronger than the wood itself.
Lava Stone (Molcajete) - ideal for heavy duty grinding and round grain or seeds. It has a textured interior that is quite strong and allows you to grind coriander or poppy seeds without them sliding out of the mortar. It is porous and has nooks and crannies - so liquids can soak into the stone, and it will require a good cleaning after use. Can experience grit from the lava stone in your mixture.
Marble - one of the heaviest sets, marble is ideal for harder grinding such as rock salt, and very hard seeds. It has a smooth interior that helps with consistency of the size of the grind. Non-absorbent interior, but can scratch if very hard materials are ground. Also not ideal for round seeds, as it is very slick and smooth in the middle, and they tend to slide around rather than grind down.
