Ritual herbal blend - Aether - Ascendo

Semiphoras' first-class ritual herbal mixtures are made using traditional methods from pure and organic raw materials; from herbs, seeds, roots, berries and flowers. Carefully selected and consecrated ingredients rich in symbolic meaning are carefully dried, ground and mixed into ready-made herbal mixtures. We recommend using herbal mixtures as part of altar and ritual work and during the Purifico, Dedico and Ascendo phases. Ritual herbal mixtures are also suitable for use as potpourri.

In ancient Greek mythology, Aither was the primordial god (protogenos) of light, space and the brightness of the sky. In Hesiod's Birth of the Gods, Aither is the son of Erebus and Nycs and the brother of Hemera. His mother Nyks (personification of night) pulls the dark mist from Erebos across the sky, bringing night below him, while his sister Hemera (day) pulls away the mist to reveal the radiant glow of Aither and brings day. In Greek mythology, the ether was imagined to be pure essence, the upper air in which the gods lived and breathed. It was thus distinguished from the ordinary air breathed by mortals.

Symbol meaning

The most important ingredients of the heavenly and luxurious Aither - Ascendo herbal mixture are:

  • The powdered seeds of the fruit of the Baobab (Adansonia digitata), also known as the monkey bread tree and the tree of life. For Africans, this giant tree, reaching up to the sky and living for thousands of years, symbolizes endurance, life force and longevity. According to an African myth, the god deliberately planted the baobab tree upside down, so that its roots pointed towards the sky.
  • The white seeds of the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum). The species is especially known for the drug it produces, opium. The opium poppy symbolizes sleep, peace and death. In Greek and Roman myths, red poppies were used as offerings to the dead. Pictures of poppies have been carved on tombstones for centuries, where they have symbolized eternal sleep.
  • Saffron (Crocus sativus) buds. Saffron has been valued throughout history. As a plant, the crocus symbolizes spring, rebirth, youth and joy. In ancient Egypt healers used saffron to treat indigestion, while in ancient Rome it was used to promote wound healing and relieve respiratory problems. Saffron was also sometimes sprinkled directly into the air to purify it.
  • Sesame (Sesamum indicum) seeds. In Hinduism, sesame seeds symbolize immortality, prosperity and good luck. They were used to be offered mixed with rice as a gift to the gods. In ancient Egypt, the oil obtained from sesame seeds was used in skin care.

Ritual use

Ritual Herbal Blend - Purifco: Mix a pinch of Ritual Herbal Blend into consecrated water to increase and target a symbolic, purifying effect. Fill a flat container, for example a sounding bowl, with water and sprinkle in the herbal mixture. You can use the ritual herbal mixture to cleanse a sacred area or space by mixing the herbal mixture directly with the washing water. The trial mixture can also be used like incense. Sprinkle a pinch of the herbal mixture over glowing embers or throw it directly into an open fireplace or campfire.

Ritual Herb Mix - Dedico : Use the Ritual Herb Mix to build an altar or complement and enrich an already existing altar. Strengthen the altar candles by rolling them in a herbal mixture. Sprinkle the ritual herb mixture directly onto the altar, grid, or open container, such as a ritual bowl or seashell. You can also sanctify the desired space by sprinkling the ritual herbal mixture in four different corners of the room. The herbal mixture is also excellently suitable as an ingredient of portable pendants, amulets and Talismans, to remind about the aspirations and the things they represent.

Ritual Herbal Blend - Ascendo : Mix a pinch of ritual herbal blend into the oil. Oil strengthened with a mixture of herbs can be used in anointing where an object is anointed with oil to symbolize blessing, sanctification, completion or preparation for something important.
