Have you noticed anything when the deities your offering, don't particularly love what your offering? I just noticed this tonight, I was trying to offer some lavender incense that I had just bought to Aphrodite, and after 5 consistent tries it absolutely would not stay lit. I use incense all the time, and this has never been a problem. Perhaps Aphrodite doesn't like lavender incense? Anybody have a similar problem, or a story to share?


Aset doesn't seem to like cauliflower, at least from me.  And the strawberry-kiwi juice was "okay".  

Wepwawet doesn't seem to like milk or blueberry muffins.  He said they were "girly offerings".
I am the Goddess of Who I can Become. I mix the magic of the sorceress with the blade of a warrior. I walk the liminal pathways to see the face of the Goddess, both terrible and kind. As She stares back at me, I tremble in awe and ecstasy.  --SatAset

That's interesting.  I make a homemade incense of lavender flowers, bay leaves, and frankincense that I burn by the handfuls, especially for Aphrodite, but it seems to be satisfactory for other gods (needless to say, this is *outdoor* incense only!).

In a more general sense, I have found that the quality of the offering as well as the dedication of the sacrificer go a long way in determining whether or not an offering is accepted.
