The Wilkinson text is available via archive.org. :)

Lise Manniche lists one or two recipes for it in a now-OOP text she published a couple decades or so ago, which primarily deals with Ancient Egyptian incense and perfume. I have a copy of it in my personal library. I'd be happy to scan the relevant pages for you, if you're interested. ;D

This text is also available via the Internet Archive. It costs nothing to create an account and borrow books, so I highly recommend using Open Library if you're looking for books! Chapter 3 contains the section on kyphi.

I can second the cinnamon suggestion for all the reasons listed historically! :) I have an incense that I use on special occasion, Fred Soll's Resin on a Stick incense in the Frankincense and Myrrh with Cinnamon scent. They also have a single note cinnamon incense. I lean towards the variant with frankincense and myrrh since traditionally the Mendesian consists of strong myrrh and cinnamon notes.

My general use incense is the very commonly used Morning Star Japanese incense of which I have a wide selection. For (Aset-)Hatmehyt I default to either myrrh or jasmine. I have the Fred Soll Moonlight Jasmine which is another special occasion offering.

Cedar is also a popular offering at my house. I have the Morning Star sticks as well as compressed bricks of wood. I find I prefer the bricks because they have a stronger and more pleasant scent. It takes a bit more time to get it burning, but it is well worth it.

Rose is a scent I always keep on hand, although I most commonly use it for my Akhu for personal reasons.

Welcome back, sister! I'm happy that Aset has kept you safe and that things have gotten better for you. I've missed you more than I can say.

With the past few discussions in the discord #deep-general channel in mind, I want to bring up some words that I read years ago in high school. It may be very typical for a white person to call on the words of Martin Luther King Jr., but in this case these words serve to bring me a discomfort that encourages me to move forward and learn more. You can read them in their original context in the Letter from a Birmingham Jail.

Quote
First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.

I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress. I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that the present tension in the South is a necessary phase of the transition from an obnoxious negative peace, in which the Negro passively accepted his unjust plight, to a substantive and positive peace, in which all men will respect the dignity and worth of human personality. Actually, we who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. We bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with. Like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured.

I’m glad it was helpful! It’s always relieving to be able to get rid of something you don’t want to move with :) Good luck with the move!

Em hotep, Bear!

I'm hesitant to say yes, for a couple of reasons. The most important of which is the fact that, as you mentioned, aquarium salt is inedible. Now, I wouldn't recommend eating natron, but you do use it to wash out your mouth. That's one of the reasons why sea salt isn't recommended, as it can give it a fishy taste. Kosher salt is what is usually recommended. Here is a thread that might be useful to you.

In any case, they will go over recipes for natron as well as its uses in the class itself! There's no need to rush and have it prepared ahead of time.

Hope this helps!

Em hotep, Hepetwi!

I think that is justified! It's another one of those situations where the line between Netjer and Netjeri gets blurry, haha.

Em hotep, Khala!

I have a lot of information on the abdju fish (species unknown) and the inet fish (the bulti or Nile tilapia). They are indeed real, however whether they are a Netjeri or (particularly in the case of the abdju fish) a title of a Netjer can be debated. I don't want to bog down this thread with too much extraneous info, so if you want me to give a basic run-down of the information feel free to PM me or we can make a thread devoted to the topic specifically!

Senebty,
Sesai

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Aspects of Aset?
« on: April 28, 2020, 06:23:44 pm »
As everyone had said, Aset can be many things. Speaking with Hemet (AUS) recently, she even said that each person will always interact with what we call an Iru, a form, of Aset, simply because she is such a shapeshifter. For me, Aset is Hatmehyt, who is the goddess of Mendes named "foremost of the fishes", but that doesn't mean she isn't also still Aset. If you feel pulled to examining a very specific form of Aset, you absolutely should.

That being said, if you need someone to talk to about this subject, please don't hesitate to send me a message. 💙

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Nit-Nebthet-Seshat?
« on: March 14, 2020, 11:06:56 am »
I have Nit-Nebthet-Seshat as a Beloved as well, and I get them together. Before my RPD I spent time with Nit and Nebthet, with an emphasis on Nebthet. Seshat is the most distant to me, which I think is why they appeared in that order in my RPD.

I get Nit as a stern but loving force, presenting to me as very butch. Nebthet is softer, but since my RPD I've come to understand my experience of her more as Nit in different clothing.

Nit-Nebthet-Seshat enjoys from me things that are strong-- stiff drinks, highly seasoned foods, as well as offerings of my time which take on more physical emphases.

I do also get her as Creator sometimes, which is when she becomes most mind-bendy to me. She is definitely a lot to conceive of and understand, for sure!

That's a lovely shrine, Theillusrationist! I love how everything has meaning for you. I've definitely also had to have tiny and subtle spaces, and Netjer understands.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Bes Amulet/Artwork?
« on: January 21, 2020, 08:36:12 pm »
This is what I was able to find with a brief search:
https://www.ebay.com/i/254335202521
or
https://www.etsy.com/listing/622237422/bes-egyptian-god-of-good-fighting-evil

An alternative might be a sa protection amulet! Bezen has one available here from shapeways: https://www.shapeways.com/product/A33TYHS6B/ancient-egyptian-sa-ldquo-protection-rdquo-amulet-version-1
You might also be able to request a Bes design, but you would have to speak to them directly to verify that they can do that! :)

Senebty,
