Metaphysical meaning of Keturah (mbd)
Keturah, ke-tu'-rah (Heb.)--incense; fragrant smoke; fragrance; perfume; aloe-wood.

The wife whom Abraham took after Sarah died (Gen. 25:1-4).

Meta. A phase of the soul consciousness that, though still in sense, aspires to higher things for the body. Through this sincere desire of the soul for higher and purer realizations of Truth, the animal nature is refined, and thus prepared for transmutation. (Burning of "incense" symbolizes the process of transmutation; fragrance, perfume, bespeaks aspiration.)
