Geb was the father of Osiris, Seth, Isis, and Nephthys and he represented the Earth. He was also the brother and husband of the Goddess Nut and son to Shu and Tefnut. He was also called "The Great Cackler" a reference to the Cosmic egg that contained the sun, the symbol of creation. In some temples, he was depicted as a man with a goose on his head. Geb was a member of the Ennead of Heliopolis and one of the most important Gods of Ancient Egypt. He was associated with Healing and it was high ranged, Even Osiris commanded Geb to restrain the malicious spirits which caused colds and fevers.

So whenever you or I need healing when we are sick, this little prayer or chant can be said

Geb, Hear my Call
Geb, be with me at this time
Heal me from this sickness, so I can be well, This I ask of you.
So mote it Be.

Here's an Earth Scented Incense to use when you are praying to Geb;
Materials needed; Mortar and Pestle, pine needles, fresh thyme, Patchouly Oil, Charcoal, and Cauldron.
Instructions; Take one part of pine needles, and one part of the fresh thyme, add a few drops of patchouly oil and ground them up in the mortar and pestle. Add some of this mixture to your charcoal in the cauldron and enjoy the earthy smell to honor Geb.


  1. Very nice. I like the part about the 'Great Crackler'!
    I also very much like the recipe for the incense. Sounds like a pleasant mix, too. I will have to try it.
    Are there any other especial relationship of these scents to Geb - other than an Earthiness... that you are aware of?
    Just a thought :)

  2. not that I'm aware of, but would definitely be worth looking into
