Ivy is dedicated to the Gods Osiris, Bacchus and Dionysus.
Ivy is a symbol of fidelity, devotion, commitment, longevity and tenacity.

We had to process this resin extensively before packaging it by freezing, crushing, sifting and manually separating the abundance of tiny pieces of plastic bag that were mixed into the resin. (At room temperature, this material is extremely sticky!!)
These bits of bags indicate to me, that the Ivy resin is collected in very small amounts by multiple collectors and it is not commercially grown or harvested.
I don't know if I will be able to get more of this unique material so get it while you can.
It may be difficult to remove your Ivy resin from the plastic wrapper. My workaround is to place the bag in the fridge or freezer for 15-30 minutes before attempting to separate it from its package. After chilling, it will detach with ease and without leaving any material stuck to the wrapper.
This is a collection of aromatic materials mentioned in the Old & New Testaments and in ancient Egyptian texts. I often get asked to translate biblical plant names and source the materials they mention. They are all here in this collection.
