ASPAND SEED

In Hoodoo Folk Magic, Spell-Craft, and Occultism

aspand-esfand-esphand-espand-peganum-harmal-seed
Throughout the area of the former Persian empire, an herb seed called ASPAND, ESFAND, or HARMAL is burned on charcoal to rid children of the Evil Eye and to bring blessings after one has performed a sorrowful rite, such as attending a funeral. While the seeds pop and the smoke is circled around the head, a short verse is recited. Although utilized by modern Muslims, this is an ancient Zoroastrian prayer to the Five Archangels, as taught by King Naqshband: "This is Aspand, it banishes the Evil Eye; The blessing of King Naqshband; Eye of nothing, Eye of relatives; Eye of friends, Eye of enemies; Whoever is bad should burn in this glowing fire." Please note that while ASPAND smoke may be safely inhaled, the seeds themselves are not for human consumption. We make no spiritual claims for ASPAND, but sell it as a Curio only.

charcoal
Resins, especially the gummy ones, do not always light and burn well on their own, and even herbs and self-lighting incense powders will burn more evenly if given a start, so when burning natural incenses, it is customary to place them on smouldering charcoal.
