Ingredients are balsam resin, cloves, galbanum, cassia, frankincense resin, myrrh resin, spikenard (nard -interpreted as lavender), saffron, costus, cinnamon leaf and bark

ABOUT KETORET PITUM PRAYER CARD:
This prayer is for blessing of Parnassa (livelihood) and protection; Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai urges the people of Israel to read carefully the section of prayers describing the compound of the incense twice in the morning and once in the afternoon, assuring them that if they do, they will be protected from every source of evil and will not come to harm in that entire day. This can be found in the Torah exodus 30, Exodus 25, and Numbers 8.
Given the benefits of reading the incense prayer Rabbi Yitzchak Luria, the Arizal enlarged the Biblical and Talmudic sections describing the compound of the incense by adding several texts. Among these are the description of the Temple menora-candelabra, which is repeated seven times, and the Torah section describing how Moshe and Aaron stopped the plague, which is repeated three times, psalm no. 91, which is repeated seven times, as well as other psalms and verses. Presented according to the teachings of the Inner Torah, these holy texts are read in the way that most benefits one suffering illness:
The Arizal’s wisdom becomes evident as you see the combination of verses, some of which are said first in the regular order of their words and afterward the same words are said backward, while some of the letters are highlighted to enable the initiate to realize that there are Divine Names concealed within the letters of certain verses. If you read Hebrew, print the adjoining text of this prayer and follow it with your eyes while you are listening to its reading.
