    I recently purchased three blends from Rosarium Blends: Hekate, Kali, and Summoning Spirits.

    First and foremost, the Hekate is an unrivaled scent! Never have I had the opportunity to burn such a lovely concoction. Very mystical and magickal. The storax has one of the most trance-inducing aromas I have every smelled, but that might also have something to do with the Aconite!

    The Kali was incredible too! Very sensual, yet awe inspiring. Layers of deep, dark, alluring smells that pulled you into the arms of the most terrifying, and yet most compassionate Mother.

    Summoning Spirits is great as well, it has an earthy herbal scent, the kind you would expect to smell if you came across a group of witches in the woods performing the ceremonies under a canopy of leaves with sun light filtering through, illuminating the swirls of the sacred blend that really does draw the spirits in, and definately affects the atmosphere of one’s devotions and rituals.

    All of them are great, I would also like to add that they are very well blended and they each have many layers of scent. The resins, the herbs, flower petals, and they come in these really witchy glass bottles with these lovely aged, alchemical labels; just great stuff. I plan on buying more soon. Don’t wait, buy some now. ^_^

      I received my lovely round little bottle. It is VERY BEAUTIFUL, a PERFECT DESIGN!
      Guess what it contains now?
      – Indian Ocean Water
      It is the MOST BEAUTIFUL Little Bottle I could find for it. Thank you.

    Every blend I’ve tried has surpassed my expectations, all of your blends are so amazing! Having burned Manifestation, Kali, Sekhmet, and Phoenix regularly for the past few weeks I can say it it so much more than any other incense I’ve ever used. I mean some blends really can get me places if I’m working to make it so, but I can burn this shit and stuff just happens. With intent… it’s so much more!! (Manifestation is particularly potent). You are truly exceptional at your craft! Thank you for sharing it with the world!

    I’m not sure if you have planned on this or not but I think that you should make some perfumes. As long as they don’t smell terrible (like most natural perfumes that I have smelt). I would definitely buy some for my girlfriend. So please seriously consider this =)

    Rosarium blend’s incense simply has to be experienced. As soon as the stopper has been pulled it becomes clear you are dealing with a work of skill and devotion.

    Kali – for example, is such a powerful and potent blend that it makes a suitable offering unburned. Those who do cast it to the flame, in devotion and intent will surely receive… Thank you Catamara

    I have purchased several incense concoctions from Rosarium Blends and I have to say, they are absolutely magical. Never before have I experienced so much from just burning incense…but that is the key, these are not just “incenses” these are magical creations. My favorite blend has been Hekate, deep with layers upon layers that roll over you, creating an atmosphere that can not be described. I can not wait to get the Oil blends and look forward to each and everyone.

    I am loving the oils, Im using the Hecate oil, and wearing it daily. Im dreaming more and feeling magickal and empowered. I usually dont find that one oil that talks to me. Rosariumblends are the best

    A very warm June night with not so much as a whisper of a breeze…under the full moon. I called forth and burned the Hecate blend. One could not ask for a better medium to make that which is invisible seen. Three days later she appeared in the flesh. I am spent.

    The Rosarium:
    Beneath the Rose lies a mystery, the hidden gold within the soils of our spirit, revealed through the Labyrinthine heart of gnosis. Each petal tells of a journey into the most holy enclosure of the Rosarium, the alchemical garden of true will blooming forth.
    This blend evokes the spiral-forms of creation, from spiritual birth to transcendent rebirth in sacred love. Embraced by the heady, dark aromas of Storax to the mystical and seductive aroma of Gilded Damask Rose; It is the Agape, flowering in rapturous splendour.
    Ave Sancta Rosarium!

    I have three Rosarium products that I have purchased over the past two months. The first is Witch Moon oil. The scent is in indescribable. It makes one think of witches in a grove of old Europe, under the light of a summer moon, giving praise to Diana, Hecate or Persephone.

    My next purchase was the Summoning Spirits incense. It has a real herbal, Mediterranean feel to it. It makes me think of ancient temples in Greece or the Roman Empire. A wonderful scent, loved by the living and the dead.

    My latest purchase, this past Monday at a Seattle shop, was The Rosarium blend. I was very surprised to see this. There was only a single bottle, which I grabbed and quickly smelled. I was in love. Naturally, it came home with me. Before my Beltane ritual, I tested this blend. I used a very small amount. The intoxicating scent quickly filled my small condo. It made me think of the rose garden that Lilith was said to be born in. This might be my favorite incense ever. I still have other products I hope to purchase soon.

    First I must compliment you on your shop! I absolutely love the way you abide by the true and oldest ways of concocting these sacred medicines by the heart and spirit of each herb..resin..tree..root etc..You are clear in your intent and focus! Showing your great respect for their spirits and their magikal uses, and certainly respect for the Craft!
    I bought the Rosarium blend to try this…its effects are quite amazing!
    I could feel the sublime power with its handcraft! I’m truly thankful to find you!

    Today I received the order that I placed only three days ago and I am thrilled with every aspect. The service was incredibly quick for an out of state order and the product itself is truly great. I get to replace the crappy ceramic oil diffuser that I have been using with your iron and copper piece and the oils are really without equal. I have some dear friends that operate an apothecary and they do have some great creations, but I have to say that you are something of a giant in your field.

    Thank you so much for your expertise and efficiency. In a battle of herbalists and alchemists, you would kick the ass of most!

    Rosarium Blends oils are some of the very finest I have used. I have used and highly recommend the Manifestation, Witch Moon, Divination, and Dragons Blood so far. Intense work from a gifted maker. They are in regular use in my practice and in my shop.

    Happily we found Rosarium Blends at the Mother Earth News Fair this weekend. Among lovely workshops we found these fabulous oils, perfumes and incenses. The Manifestation oil is still scenting my wrist 13 hours later. Beautiful layered scents- you will not be disappointed. I had to go back for a second perfume. Wonderful crafting. Thank you!!

      Thank you so much for the feedback and accolades Diane! We are so glad you are *still* enjoying the manifestation essential oil! May all of your desires manifest from the macrocosm and earth into the microcosm! Bloom true~ Catamara

    I recently purchased the complete set of Rsoarium Blends Essential oils. I had been wearing Sekmet for sometime, and wanted to test drive the rest. The set arrived beautifully packaged in a black box, tied with a rose red ribbon, Lovely presentation. Inside, were my bottles, all sealed and clean, with Rosarium’s beautiful labels. I am currently wearing Pirowica. The first sniff gave rise to the Myrrh and Olibanum scents, while the dry down gave the vanilla a chance to bloom. As I went to sleep last night, I could still smell the Benzoin,a nd as I sit here writing this morning, it’s still there, lingering (even after my morning shower, too!). Catamara knows her craft, and I will be sharing my bounty with some friends whoa re also perfume aficionados. Mesi anpil se mwen – Nen ou se diven! Love, Honor and Respect ~ Mambo

      Thank you so much for your wonderful words a about our perfume oils! Honor! Pirowica is indeed a complex perfume, I’m glad you are able to wtiness the way she opens up and shifts throughout the day/night. If you like those we have natural perfumes as well! A few new blends will be on the website soon.

    My purchase of the Sandarac incense gum resin at Puget Sound Pagan Pride day from Rosarium resulted in a most effective ritual on the Lunar eclipse. This cypress exudate from Morocco is like a nearly odorless Frankincense and was the favored offeratory in the tower temples or Ziggurats of ancient Mesopotamia. If you find Frankincense a bit overwhelming this is the perfect replacement. A favorite of the astral Gods of Sumer/Akkadia/Babylonia.
