Interestingly, my website receives the greatest of it's inquiries in the Kyphi department. Highly personal, I advise those truly interested in Kyphi, to make their own. A MASSIVE undertaking when done properly. I recommend starting with the best ingredients in existence. Mt. Rose Herbs being the source for organic herbs & resins, procured with thought & with regards to the planet's well-being. amazon.com provides you with a great & affordable, granite mortar & pestle -you'll need this for proper pulverising ... whatever you do, begin this undertaking on an important day with a favourable numeric element as it pertains to your personhood. i.e...if you favour 8s...begin on the 8th day of the 8th month at the 8th hour on the 8th minute, or, if you constantly gaze at the clock & see 22s, start on the 22nd, at the 22nd hour, 22nd minute...etc...etc..etc..wear the colours, attire, gems & ornament which empower you on a personal level.

- Plan on spending days with the mortaring process. The mortar-by-hand process, though exhausting, is important for energetic transfer. Starting at your favourable hour in a dedicated space, express reverence & thankfulness to the Gods as you mortar. You may also draw down the moon, the sun etc...in short, make this recipe yours.
- 1/4 part Copal resin
- 1/4 part Calamus
- 1/4 part Orris root
- 1/4 part Galangal
- 1/4 part Cinnamon (zeylonika)
- 1/4 part Makko
- 1/4 part Opopanax
- 1/2 part Benzoin resin
- 1/2 part Lemongrass
- 1/2 part Juniper berries
- 1 part Frankincense resin
- 1 part Myrrh resin
- 1 pt. Indian Sandalwood(certified)
As you can see, I have affixed my own concepts to the recipe. While you are busy mortaring, you can macerate the Juniper Berries referred to above, with 3 parts of golden, organic imported raisins and some Egyptian white wine (high quality). It really is imperative to activate the authentic ethnic energies whenever possible...so, I always make a great attempt to find, locate and buy everything from Egypt & her cousins. Cover the berries and raisins with the wine and let them bathe in it for days (adding more wine ad continuum as they plump up). While this is happening, locate the very best, organic Egyptian honey and buy it. As bees are supreme herbalists, imagine them going from flower-to-flower over there in the land of the pyramids...and making honey from flowers that grew from the ancient sands & mummy-dust .Tis the same philosophy for everything procured for Kyphi.
When all above has been mortared to a fine powder & you have justly recovered, heat the Juniper Berries & raisins in a *NON-METAL saucepan...I use a set of Le Creuset pans for this endeavor....they are heavy, enamel-lined and they retain heat very well. They are also beautiful! Heat to simmer...then turn off & cover....if there is any wine left over from the Le Creuset- simmer, drink it!
Then, mortar the raisins & Juniper Berries & marry them with 1 part honey (this should be in a big enamel or wooden container with a lid) as you will be adding everything you mortared into the container. Metal affects things adversely, so, don't ruin your good work by using it here.
For adding the above 13 ingredients:
It is important to be clear & unadultered with no outside influences such as electronics, phones, people barking beasts, distracting thoughts etc.. On the other hand, activate your Kyphi with the effects of those you love, admire and revere, you can have photographs, music, audio, colours, crystals, personal effects, cremains, essentially anything powerful, in the audience of your production. You can even add the dust of your beautiful lover, or the tail-hair of a marvelous stallion, if so inclined. Add the ingredients instinctually. Follow your gut. If you elected to morph the recipe into your own, celebrate accordingly. Pray, recite, sing, incant, conjure. Add the ingredients & mix with a wooden spoon....again, I use an enamel-lined Le Creuset stock-pot for this.
I also use enamel-lined creative license here, big time (in short, do what thou wilt, but without hubris)...
I love Cardomom, it's camphory parfum really does it for me...& so, I de-husk it , mortar it and throw caution to the wind by adding quite alot of it. More mortared Cinnamon, more Calamus & any essential oils I might feel the need for, like Neroli- they go in. In the past events I have added, 13 drops of Cypress, Cedar, Elemi, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Melissa etc...In short, whatever your essential oil totemics & herbs are, this is a fine place to add them.
By this time, you'll have body-builder forearms. You can assess your mixture & add what you like, more Opopanax??? More Juniper??? It is your call. The texture should be like choc. chip cookie dough. Things will blend as you let it sit covered, overnight...re-assess with a woodenspoon in the morning as the sun rises, as you draw the sun, roll into small balls and lay to age on butcher paper...you can coat with Benzoin powder or not...whatever the case, turn the balls daily for a month...the longer they age, the better they are. Sample your first Kyphi on a favourable day, a party should be had...I use self-lighting charcoals from Mt. Rose Herbs & fire 3 of them up in a cast iron censor (this dandy little set-up is shown below placing 2 balls of Kyphi atop, prepare to be taken to an obscure temple of the mind, where sight & sound reverse & mystery becomes familiar....there is nothing quite like the beautiful purification that Kyphi compels.
