LOL I see you have been reading Scott Cunningham's book on Incense Oils and Brews. Please keep in mind that where it says parts, it is calling for powder not oils:)

Making Incense

Post by Gentlesorp » Tue Mar 27, 2007 2:19 pm

I loved this post, thank you for it!  I have perhaps a silly question though.  My own experience with incense is limited to the sticks you find at stores...how does one make these from your recipes?    Would anyone care to enlighten me please?

Thanks again,
-Gentlescorp

if you google "make your own incence" there are a few sites that tell you ways of rolling your own cones or making incence sticks with bamboo base etc. There are also some rules for this to take into concideration (apparently) i guess so as not to create too much of a spark??? but i would say you could mix these ingredients and burn in an incence (oil) burner?
