The history of WITCH BOTTLES dates back as far as the 17th centaury, and are countermagical devices used as protection against witchcraft and conjure. They are described in historical sources in England and the United States in particular. One of the earliest descriptions of a witch bottle in Suffolk, England, appears in 1681 in Joseph Glanvill’s Saducismus Triumphatus, or Evidence concerning Witches and Apparitions.
Some of the earliest documented witch bottles consist of salt glazed stoneware jugs known as Bartmann jugs, Bellarmines, or "Greybeards." Bellarmines were named after a particularly fearsome Catholic Inquisitor, Robert Bellarmine, who persecuted Protestants and was instrumental in the burning of Giordano Bruno. Greybeards and Bellarmines were made of brown or gray stoneware glazed with salt and embossed with a bearded face. Later witch bottles were made from glass bottles, small glass vials, and a variety of other containers.
The witch bottle was believed to be active as long as the bottle remained hidden and unbroken. People did go through a lot of trouble in hiding their witch bottles – those buried underneath fireplaces have been found only after the rest of the building has been torn down or otherwise disappeared. The origins of this tradition have been dated at least to the 16th century. In ancient times the bottles were made of stone and originally contained rusty nails, urine, thorns, hair, menstrual blood, and pieces of glass, wood, and bone. ~ Wiki

Pure powders, resins and gums in granular form are traditional western incenses and must be roasted on a hot coal or metal surface so the small pieces can burn slowly and properly releasing quantities of rich, fragrant smoke.
★ Natural incense (Granular, Resin, Herb or Powdered) is made to be burn on a hot charcoal representing the "Air" element in Spiritual Practice. Just place a small amount on top of the charcoal. The resins or herbs will begin to burn and release their essential oils and natural essences through the smoke. Incense has two major functions: First, it is believed to create a magical atmosphere that is appropriate for the invocation (or inviting) of Deities and Spirits often present around the Pagan/Occult altar. Second, burning the incense is believed to release the large amount of energy stored within natural incense so that it can be used for magical purposes. Smoke is used as an offering to the Spirits by carrying our prayers, energy and petitions to the "Powers That Be". ★
★ Never leave burning Incense unattended and keep away from children and PETS! Charcoal should be placed in a nonflammable and heat resistant container or dish (Soapstone, Ceramic or Clay is best), that readily disperses heat and is filled with Earth or Sand. Keep away from anything flammable; Curtains, Rugs, Bedding, Books, Paper, Decorations, etc. Keep away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans, and ALL air currents. ★
