For Christmas I received an aromatic treasure from Eleneetha at Etsy (aka Anastasia Angelopolous) ~ a packet of handmade kyphi. What you get when you order this strange looking object is a little cookie of resins, raisins and herbs, so beautifully scented you're almost afraid to burn it. But do! From the first wisp of magical smoke to the last, this kyphi inspires. A thousand blessings spring from the ether, setting your sore mind at ease. This is the kyphi of the ancient Egyptians, the offering to the gods, the homage to Kings and Queens, the hopes and dreams of the common man.
Kyphi is for everyone these days ~ go get you some!
