Resource Lists: Supplies
« on: July 03, 2011, 03:02:20 pm »
One of those questions that comes up occasionally is how to get/make supplies for common rituals, or where to find particular incenses, or the like.  So!  Here's a place to put suggestions.


Natron:

How To Make Natron


Kyphi / Kapet Incense:

Sacred Luxuries: Fragrance, Aromatherapy, & Cosmetics in Ancient Egypt, by Lise Manniche
Alchemy Works sells kyphi:  Edfu recipe, Dioscorides's recipe, Galen's recipe.

My favorite kyphi source went out of business, alas.

If you know of other sources for interesting Egyptiana Stuff, whether for ritual or decoration or something else, that you would like to share, feel free to post them here.


Lisa Manniche's book can be found on google books.

Ready made natron by Tears of Isis (affiliated with Kemetic Orthodox)


Isis Books has miscellaneous Egyptian-based supplies.


Two Strands Soap Works  (Natron and kyphi.)


Soma Luna.    http://www.somaluna.com/cat/egyptian_statues_egypt_statuary.asp  Statues, ritual ankhs and pretty much every herb I've ever seen added to Kyphi.  


Djembe Direct sells colorful, affordable sistra.  They're hand made from reeds and recycled bottle caps.

Sistrum

"Double" sistrum  Proceeds from sales benefit the Africa Heartwood Project.  They sell traditional instruments as a means of generating sustainable livelihoods for West-African artisans.    I thought that was pretty cool.  Get a ritual tool + uphold Ma'at by contributing to a good cause.   :)

A sistrum is also fairly easy to make.  "Circle of Isis" by Ellen Cannon Reed provides instructions on how to make one.

Does ANYONE here know where I could find a statuette of Mafdet for my altar?  I've looked for a good while and can't find any, and it's starting to make me sad.  :(

Have you thought about representing Her with a mongoose instead?  I've commissioned an aardvark (long story) for Neb.y since all the statues I've found of Him are just not right.  We have a number of talented artists on TC that might be willing to give it a try.

I would if I had money.  :(  I can't really afford any commissions right now, unfortunately.  I just spent all my money on a trip out of state.

Temple Harakhte - Caravanserai

Has a variety of sistra, temple tools, tools used for Opening the Mouth ceremonies, god boxes/naos, and canopic jars.

It seems they only ship within the US, so for those of us outside the US we'd have to make other arrangements (like a parcel service, or have a friend forward it to you).

Peter Chiappori - Chiappori Arts

He does a lot of custom work. Papyrus writing, amulets, stelae, shrine boxes, ceremonial items, along with a lot more. Can be a bit pricy, but from what I've seen of his work, it definitely looks like it's worth it.
