- Star Child (Glastonbury) - Natural Incense - Festivals - Autumn Equinox
Gone are the lazy summer days. Autumn is knocking on the door. With a last burst of exuberance the sun paints the leaves for a festive display before its final decline. Autumn equinox is a time to get busy - bringing in the last of the harvest and preserving it for the lean times to come. Now is the time of reckoning - for we shall reap as we sowed. For the moment there is plenty, a cornucopia of fruit to be grateful for and to celebrate with a harvest feast - but will it last through the dark half of the year. Autumn equinox is a day of equilibrium - night and day hold their balance - but tomorrow the dark forces are beginning to win the upper hand.
Autumn Equinox is a time to celebrate the harvest and the abundant gifts of the earth. It is a time to reflect and be grateful for that which nourishes and sustains us.

How to Burn Star Child Incense
Use a suitable Grated / Sieved Burner or a Charcoal Disc in an appropriate holder.
Place a self-igniting charcoal disc in a fireproof dish, well away from flammable objects. The charcoal discs can be ignited simply by holding a match or lighter to the rim. Be aware that these discs may spit and sparkle profusely upon ignition. Allow plenty of air to flow around the charcoal to ensure that it burns evenly. Once the charcoal disc has finished sparkling it will start to glow, usually first on one side, then slowly spreading over the whole disc. When the entire disc is glowing red hot it is ready to use and you can place a pinch of incense on top. As the disc burns, the fire will concentrate in its centre. You may occasionally want to scrape off the ashes to expose the glowing centre and add fresh incense as desired.
