Foot wierookkruid Foot (Artemisia Vulgaris). Element of fire – centre of gravity of body. Strengthens male sexual desire and protects against negative influences. Stimulates courage. These types of incense can be used for purification rituals, such as the removal of negative energy that can give an energetic blockage, both in living spaces and in the person’s aura. Also excellent incense for witches and shamanic rituals. Also works well against mosquitoes. In Eastern medicine, traditional Chinese medicine as well as Japanese and Korean acupuncture (http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acupunctuur), foot has been used for heating for many centuries. This is called moxibustia (http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moxibustie). For this purpose, the dried and ground hindquarter is lit. Here the name ‘moxa’ is used for apiary. In China people do not speak of acupuncture either, but of Zhen Jiu, which literally means stabbing (of the needles) and burning (of the moxa). For these applications, moxa is available in various forms (loose moxa, pressed in the form of a type of cigar and the like). Suitable for burning on charcoal and the special sieve-smoke burners that are sold separately. The combustion process on these sieve burners is somewhat slower than on charcoal. You can easily mix the incense with other varieties if you take a larger sieve burner. Also available are a matching pair of pliers to safely light the charcoal, a pliers to tackle the sieve, a steel brush to clean the sieve and a pheasant feather to spread the scent. A separate sieve of 125 mm fits perfectly on an oil evaporator when the receptacle is removed.
