Most Sacred Kyphi Incense


This is the Kyphi I made in 2017.

Kyphi is Ancient Greek word for Incense and most sought after by Sorcerers.

For this, I followed a formula from Talia Felix’s book: The Conjure Cookbook.

It calls for: Mastic, Pine Resin, Honey, Palmarosa, Mint and Sweet Flag. She doesn’t give proportions. She says though that this is the right ancient Egyptian formula from the time of Rameses the III and it’s the simplest formula known. And that raisins and red wine were added to this formula in later versions.


I added honey to it to create the little balls and rolled them on the powdered formula. It was quite an experiment, let me tell you! I was mixing all the powdered ingredients with honey using a glass stirrer. The thing broke and made a medium size cut on my right hand and blood went all over the ingredients. And in shock I realized that I was paying the coin for what I was doing, a sacrifice of sorts, since I’m no Ancient Egyptian Priest and might not have been following the right magical procedures. *OH!!! It just dawn on me that maybe the wine in the later versions is a replacement for blood!!!


The also interesting thing was that my friend’s cat passed away the next day and I went to her house in the evening with chocolates for her and she took me to see her cat’s grave. Once on her backyard I felt this urge to perform a little ritual for the cat. I knew a funerary rite, changed from the Egyptian Book of the Dead to be used for a Pet’s Funeral. (I bought this Ritual from the Sorceror’s Apprentice website). My friend agreed and I went back home to get the Kyphi . When I got back to her house with the Kyphi, she went to get something important in the house, all excited about it and she brought out this large wooden ancient (thousands of years old, maybe) statue of Osiris!!! Her first husband had bought it from a museum in the 60s, quite cheap as one foot of the statue had a chip on it. And we performed the Ceremony that actually called upon Osiris to come get her cat. Amazing! I felt as if for the first time in my life I was really doing what I was supposed to do, as if I had lived before in that far away land and this was familiar to me.


Now, the cut on my hand took a month to heal as I was going through chemo at the time, which makes your body heal slower. And I haven’t made any more Kyphi since, I save it for special occasions!😂😂😂

I could be convinced to create Some Kyphi for you, if you so need it, just let me know.
