Magickal Goody for July 23 – Make Your Own Stick & Cone Incense

How to Make Stick & Cone Incense

 

Incense has been used since early times for everything from scenting homes to religious ceremonies. Burned in the form of sticks or cones, incense can create a meditative air, or impart a sense of luxury and calm. Sticks and cones are imbued with scented oils that emit fragrance when burned.

Things You’ll Need

  • 1 oz. sandalwood
  • 1/3 oz. orris root

  • 1/6 oz. benzoin

  • 1/4 to 1/8 tsp. gum tragacanth

  • 1 tbsp. potassium nitrate

  • Mortar and pestle

  • Thin wood or bamboo sticks

  • Natural or synthetic oil (anything but regular petroleum)

  • Instructions

      • 1

        Grind up the sandalwood, orris root and benzoin in the mortar and pestle. Make the powder as fine as possible.

        Mix together the 3 powders and place them into a bowl. In a seperate bowl, mix in 1 to 1 1/2 tsp. of water for every 3 tsp. you have of incense powder. Add the potassium nitrate to the water, and allow it to dissolve completely.’

        Make the cones. For every 2 tbsp. of incense powder, add from 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. of gum tragacanth. Mix everything together until you obtain the consistency of dough.

    a5c57-censing-incense-with-thurible5b15d

    “FOR EMERGENCIES” ONLY

    2 parts Dragon’s Blood
    2 parts Myrrh 1 Part Rosemary
    1 Part Asafetida *
    1 Part Cayenne *
    1 part Grains of paradise
    1 Part Rue*
    1 Part Garlic *

    Burn to be rid of foul demons, wrathful spirits, tax collectors, drunks and other noisome creatures. Stand back and hold your nose or better still, leave the room while this incense is smoldering. Those herbs marked * aren’t necessarily dangerous or baneful, but they emit a powerful smoke that is irritating to the eyes, nose and lungs.
