Fennel. Artemesia. Wood. The Stars & The Fire is soft and surprisingly courageous. The powerful herbs mugwort and fennel add depth and interest to an earthy background of sweet and smoky wood. Since ancient times, mugwort has been used to promote precognition, including prophetic dreams. It was also believed to be protective against evil, in its many forms. Fennel was also used to block spells and ward off malign spirits, as well as to impart courage and strength (Prometheus famously stole fire from Mount Olympus by spiriting away a glowing ember in a fennel stalk). Like campfire sparks swirling up into the night sky, this scent brings the spirit of the earth together with the power of the stars. From the Woody Notes family of our gender-neutral fragrances.
