Default Re: Anyone else make incense?

I make my own loose incenses...some w/herbs, some w/resins- some w/both, etc.
Is there any specific type of incense recipe someone is interested in? Money drawing, cleansing, love/attraction, luck, fairy inspired, some deity inspired ones...

I'm a bit of an herbalist (that might be an understatement, lol) and have a lot of herbs in bulk due to the many uses I utilize them for.

I can make self-lighting loose ones as well, but I prefer loose herbs and/or resins on a charcoal disk.

I use dried herbs and resin mixes from Alchemy Works...I am going to try to make some. I need a bit more of some flowers...and more time in the day.

Honey is easy to use, I make herbal honeys all the time and save some for incense. Here's a lovely article from a friend of mine, which will explain how to incorporate the honey:

My last batch was based on balsam poplar resin with white pine and rosepetal honey. It was just incredibly beautiful, I plan on making lot more next spring when the buds are out again.

I love the rose resin he has...yes, all his items are really good. He sometimes will take a while to ship, but its worth the wait.

THANK YOU!!! I've actually tried googling it before, but not come up w/how to actually use it/incorporate it into my incense.

I have made herbal honey before. I made a lavender one last year for a Pagan holiday (Lammas I think) for an awesome bread recipe I found online. It was a big hit.

Thanks again for the link.
