Incense Blend Recipes


The following recipes are from a variety of sources. If you prefer a blend of scents in your incense to one herb alone try some of these. To have the most power they should be compounded with ritual on the appropriate day and time for the intent. Measurements vary but those with fractions simply mean that fraction of the quantity you are compounding should be of that material. A part can be 1 teaspoon, 1 cup, 1 pound; anything you want depending upon how much incense you want to make. I recommend starting with teaspoons along with the appropriate fractions of a teaspoon. Measurements can be cut down to produce a smaller quantity. The ratios of ingredients may be altered to suit your sense of smell. None of these incenses will remain lit by themselves, they must be smoldered on charcoals. And remember, they are for a purpose, not all of them are pleasantly scented since the herbs were chosen for a reason. Some just smell like burning leaves, some smell incensy, and some are not so nice.
