One hundred recipes with many variations - from classic to modern creations. Rustic stone age dishes to eloquent gourmet feasts, 
all ofthe recipes are simple and nourishing, and can be prepared on the fire and enjoyed without fuss.

In this book we follow the history of smudging from tits roots in the Paleolithic age through the high civilizations of Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece to its source in the Far East, the Himalayas and Japan.
We also find a chapter dealing with the still active culture of smudging of today’s native North- and South Americans. In twelve chapters you will find detailed descriptions of smudging customs, various substances and their practical uses. Readers can discover previously unpublished recipes for mixing their own – from the very simple to the famous incense of the Egyptian priests.

There are many occasions to use smudge: healing, meditation, rituals, to accompany prayer, the cleansing of rooms and objects, in annual celebrations and ceremonies.
In hectic times, smudging can assist us to slow down and look within. On the psychic level, smudging can calm, harmonize or stimulate.

A result of the author's continuous investigations and experiences, this is the first comprehensive book on incense and smudging.
