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.

      • 2

        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.’

         

      • 3

        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. Take a small bit of the incense dough and shape it into a cone that’s 1 inch high. Flatten the bottom of the cone so it will stand up.

      • 4

      • 5

        Allow the stick to dry for 5 to 10 minutes. Dip the stick in water again, and roll it in the incense powder. Let the stick dry for 5 to 10 minutes. Repeat the process until the stick contains the desired thickness of incense.
