With delicate florals and bright citrus aromas, this Ostara loose incense recipe smolders with spring magic.
Toss it in your spring bonfire or burn it in your altar cauldron on a charcoal disk to invite the new season into your sacred space.
Where to Get Charcoal Disks
If you’ve never burned loose incense before, you might be wondering where to get those charcoal disks to place in your cauldron or fire safe bowl.
Most occult or magic shops carry them, but not everyone has access to these specialty stores.
Alternatively, Amazon carries (affiliate link —–>) charcoal disks.
But the cheapest place I’ve found them is in Middle Eastern stores or markets that sell hookah supplies, so if you have one near you, check there first!
The light, bright scent of this blend calls to mind all the glory and freshness of spring. Each ingredient symbolizes something uniquely beautiful about the season of spring.

One of the first herbs to come bursting out of the soil in spring, mint represents new growth, potential and abundance.
Its bright green color and crisp aroma “spring cleans” the mind, body and soul.
The soft purple hue of lavender flower represents the traditional pastel color palette of spring.
Ostara eggs, spring dresses and seasonal decorations often feature lavender’s painterly color.
