Incense II

Image from Google Images

A bit more on incense making today. These recipes are for incense cones which need to be burnt in an incense holder.

This a Briar Card image of the Archangel Michael

The Sword of Michael - for endings and releases

1 and a half teaspoons of Slippery Elm powder

Three quarters of a teaspoon if Sandalwood powder

One eighth of a teaspoon of Dragon's Blood

8 drops Clove Oil

Combine with 2-3 teaspoons of Fire & Water Blend, which is -

One quarter of a teaspoon of Salt Peter

8 teaspoons of liquid (hot water or floral waters)

2. Knowledge Blend

One half teaspoon of Thyme powder

Three quarters teaspoon of Basil powder

One and one quarter teaspoon Sandalwood powder

One eighth Benzoin gum

9 drops Rosemary oil

6 drops Peppermint oil

Combine with 2-3 teaspoons of Fire & Water blend.

Each mixture should provide you with 2 -3 cones which you shape by hand. Once you have combined the dry ingredients in your mortar and pestle, it is easier to mix them with the wet ingredients in a small bowl with a spoon. Obviously, use a mortar and pestle, bowl and spoon which you don't intend to use again for food preparation because some of the ingredients are not be consumed. It is important to visualise your intent while you are making and burning the cones. You will also probably need to find a good magical supplier to find all of these ingredients. If you would like to know the details of where I took the workshop (and where they sell all of the ingredients online), leave a comment and I'll email you.


  1. he biggest problem for me would be to actually find the indegrients. The cones on the photo look great.

  2. Yes, my cones weren't so neat as those! Perhaps look online for the ingredients?
