Term Definition

A substance that attracts, bonds or absorbs moisture from its environment.  More accurately, this is due to adsorption, meaning that moisture sticks to the surface of the desiccant, rather than absorption where the moisture enters into a material.  Think of it like adding=adsorption (moisture + desiccant).  For example, silica gel spheres may appear as small clear balls in your incense order from PaganPath.  These silica spheres attract the moisture away from your incense in a hygroscopic manner to keep them dry, cured, and free of mold or mildew.  Bentonite clay and sea salt are also used as natural desiccants for certain items from the site.  To recharge and re-use the silica gel beads, place them in a heat proof bowl in your oven at 250ḞF (120 ḞC) for two hours.
