Another book on incense. It also features a troubleshooting appendix that your first couple of batches will probably need some refering to. Thanks for telling us about the problem. It is clear from the tone throughout that this is a subject which the author truly enjoys and feels very passionate about.
I got this from the library and took thorough notes on the recipes contained, as well as how to make a cone incense mold out of clay, latex and gauze.
Everyone at Llewellyn did an awesome job creating this greatly expanded version of the book while holding true to the look and feel of the original.
A simple incense extruder made from a clay gun I also dislike the “east vs west” type language to describe the continents of Europe and America vs China, Magkckal and Japan. It’s simple, straight to the point, gives accurate analysis of the majority of materials that you will use many of them common household items and offers simple but enough to keep you busy recipies.

Incense: Crafting & Use of Magickal Scents
Whether you want to burn incense for meditation, magic, or just to enjoy its luxurious fragrance, “Incense” has all the information you need to start crafting your own sweet-smelling scents. What I appreciate about the book is the emphasis on using more natural materials instead of salt peter, the description on what that is and why we shouldn’t use it frequently.
In he became a professional incense maker and has avidly researched incense ever since. If you use it as a “hands on” guide, you will learn how to make spaghetti, cone, coils and stick incense without having to add saltpeter to your mix or getting makko which is quite expensive craftlng in some countries nearly impossible to find which to me was quite a plus.

A fine mesh sifter is essential for powdering ingredients It was laid out well to introduce people to types of incense and prepare readers for making their first batch of incense, there were quite a few good tips and ideas for troubleshooting, and there were if pretty good magickal, ritual, and philosophic topics discussed. No trivia or quizzes yet. The book is laid out in a way that made me feel prepared by the time I got to the actual recipes. Mar 29, Grayfeather rated it it was amazing.
I had no pictures, which was a little sad, but understandable. Furthermore, they are simple with easy to obtain ingredients and even smell good. That said it was still interesting to read.
Astra rated it liked it Feb 03, I liked that environmental concerns were brought up. I had no idea you could use things like guar gum or xanathan gum as binders. You don’t need this book to figure it out, but it’s a nice book that gets the mechanics of it across. Absinthe rated it it was amazing May 19, Even if you never make a single stick or cone of incense, understanding how incense is made is critical information for anyone who buys incense.
Aa rated it it was amazing May 06, Sifting directly into a bag reduces dust and waste The book also quite versatile in that it lists many choices and substitutions in ingredients, tools, and execution. The recipes work well and are self-burning with no saltpetre.
