When you’re getting started with Vodun or related systems, one of the things you’ll probably use the most is Eshu incense. Since he is the Master of the Gateway to the Spirit realm, all prayers, rituals, and ceremonies should begin with gaining permission, guidance, and protection with Eshu. Though he does not require much formality, it is helpful to us to burn incense to show respect for the forces of Nature he embodies. So here is a recipe made with basic ingredients that can be found in most western kitchens, herb shops, markets, and online stores.
Devotional incense for Orisha Eshu Elegbara, master and guardian of the gates and crossroads. Before you give offerings to others, you should give to Eshu first.
- 3 teaspoons ground coffee
- 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground grains of paradise or black pepper
- 6 grams cut tobacco
- 3 teaspoons sandalwood or aloeswood powder
- 1 heaping teaspoon dragon's blood powder
- 3 heaping teaspoons benzoin, frankinsense, or copal powder
- Mix together in a container, and cover.
- Store in a cool, dry place.
- Burn on charcoal or a very hot pan.
- This should be burned every Monday, and whenever you want to have a chat with Eshu.
- It can also be used for purification and protection. It clears away malevolent or otherwise bad energy. Let the smoke get into doorways and windows to protect your home or business.
- The cremains can be used in protection talismans.
