Non-combustible incense are sprinkled on charcoal blocks.
Making Non-combustible Incense:
Measure each ingredient before and after grinding them. You can use a scale or measuring spoons. If you measure with a scale measure them in grams. If you use measuring spoons, 1/4tsp, 1/2tsp, 1tsp, and 1 tbsp. You can use measuring cups too if you are making large amounts of incense.
- Make sure all ingredients are grind to a granular form. Grind them separately before you mix them.
- Once you are ready, mix them and if you can grind them again if you want.
- You can now add essential oils at this time. Just add a small amount, only a few drops should be needed. You can also use the oil in the place of an herb that you don't have.
- Charge your incense with your goal. (This only needs to be done if you are using it along with a spell, ritual, or any magic related purpose.)
- Heat your incense. You can do this by placing them on or near a hot charcoal block. If you place it directly on the block it can burn away quickly and makes a lot of smoke, so I would recommend just placing it right beside the charcoal.
You can make adjustments to the incense as you like. Just remember that some ingredients can smell differently when burned so test small amounts of the ground herb before using it in your recipes.
