You will need the following tools for making your incense:
Ash or sea salt
Mortar and pestle
A jar or bag to keep remaining incense in
Take the herbs you want to use and put it into your mortar and pestle using measuring spoons. Make sure all ingredients are equal. For example, don't put a tablespoon of Thyme in the mix and then put a teaspoon of Anise Seed. You want your ingredients to be equal so that you don't have one aroma cancelling out the others. After you have your chosen herbs in your mortar and pestle, proceed to mix them together, visualing your intent or saying it out loud. Once your incense is properly crushed, take a cone and put it on top of a jar or bag and put your incense in slowly. After that is done, you will take your charcoal burner and put sea salt or ash in it. Light a charcoal and make sure it is burning as it takes multiple flickers of a lighter to make it burn. Put it in your charcoal burner and cover it with your incense you made. If done correctly, you should have your aroma of hand made incense.
Why you should make your own incense
Making hand made incense is better than buying regular incense because you are putting your own intent into it and it is also a part of working with the Element of Fire because you are burning the herbs (also a part of working with Nature/Earth as well).
I hope this is able to help you. Please tell me if I got anything wrong or if you want to add something to this as well.
Hey amora thanks for ur teaching,now i came to know about how to make incense.But i have a question.Where i stay,i can't find herbs there,so are incense and the ready made incense sticks same?can i buy incense sticks of aroma jasmine,rose,sandalwood etc.and use them on my ritual?
Of course you can! That would be just fine. As for the herbs, you can easily find them at your local supermarket or even a grocery store. You can find herbs like Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Cloves and so many more there. If you want some good ritual based incense, that would range from Sandalwood, Frankincense, Myrrh (Frankincense and Myrrh are usually mixed together due to their banishing/exorcism properties), Dragon's Blood (Good protection incense. It also amplifies (increases) the power of the spell you're doing if done correctly). Hope this helps!
well sorry if u dont like it,but i am getting bored with that website because ghostlymodz told me he will be mailing lessons in magick to evry member,but i havent got any mails,regarding lessons.Sorry just being straight forward and telling the truth.
Well, you can still make the incense, but you'd need to save it until you can get a charcoal burner. However, there is an alternative. You could make cone incense but I'd need to research before I tell you how to make it in such a way.
