==========================================================================================

AN OLD FASHIONED PURIFYING INCENSE

Charcoal, with or without saltpeter, as in (1) above:1 part
Balsam of Tolu:1 tenth part
Musk (nowadays synthetic or substituted) 5 drops
Rose Oil 10 drops

NOTE: you can substitute Rock Rose (Labdanum) for the Musk. I prefer this. Make into cones or thin cakes as above. Or use as loose powder incense (without Saltpeter).

SWEET SANDALWOOD INCENSE

Sandalwood powder or fine chips 5 parts (say, 5 ounces)
Cloves 1 part
Benzoin 1part
Liquorice root powder 0.5 parts
Cascarilla bark 0.5 parts
Cinnamon bark 0.5 parts
Labdanum (rock rose) 0.25 parts Powder and mix thoroughly.

You can add saltpeter in MINUTE proportions into the dry mix (0.015 parts), blending thoroughly. Or leave it out altogether.

NOW ADD OILS AND OTHER INGREDIENTS AS FOLLOWS:

Styrax liquid: 0.10 parts
Cinnamon Oil: 6 drops
Clove Oil: 6 drops
Geranium Oil: 3 drops
Frankincense Oil: 3 drops
Oakmoss Oil: 3 drops (you can increase the drops for 2-5 if you wish.

Do not increase the Styrax liquid, as it will smoke and dominate if used excessively. Do not increase the Oakmoss unless you want it to dominate.)

Mix thoroughly (spoon and jar method as described above) Can be blended with gum Tragacanth or Gum Arabic solution to thicken and bind as cake or small cones. Can also be burnt on hot charcoal.

FUMIGATING CONES or INCENSE ( STRONG !!!)

Sandalwood (Yellow is best) 1 part
Benzoin 1.5 parts
Balsam of Tolu 0.30 parts
Frankincense: 0.30 parts Powder and blend as small as possible
Red Sandalwood Oil (or yellow) 0.25 parts (by weight)
Cassia Oil 0.25 parts
Clove Oil 0.25 parts

Dissolve and blend the oils ( items 4-6) in UP TO 0.25 parts (weight)denatured alcohol, or 100 proof grain alcohol.

A MINUTE amount of saltpeter can be added, but is not essential. Just enough alcohol to blend the oils and saturate the powder mix. Blend the dissolved oils and alcohol solution in with the powdered ingredients, mixing thoroughly (spoon and jar method).

Shape up as cakes or small cones as before. Store in airtight jar, as with all incenses. These can also benefit from being wrapped in aluminum or similar fine foil: it keeps the inflammable alcohol inside, and prevents the cones from sticking. Do not use plastic or clear film, as it may dissolve and stick to the cones.

PURIFICATION INCENSE

Prepare 1 part powdered charcoal base as above (with or without saltpeter)
Sea Salt: 0.10 part
Rosemary Oil: 3 drops
Wintergreen Oil: 5 drops
Tragacanth powder: 0.10 parts
Menthol crystals: 0.02 parts

NOTE: Sea Salt in incenses will CRACKLE and SPIT . Be advised. Burn in a safe container. Blend together and shape as before, if you want cones or cakes. As with all of these recipes, the loose powder can also be used (without saltpeter) on hot charcoal.

SEKHMET INCENSE

frankincense
myrrh
cloves
honey

The resins are powdered roughly (or finely) and dissolved in strong spirits, the cloves are whole, and the honey is added last.

The mix is left in an open bowl by the statue of the goddess, and gradually the spirits evaporate. The cake that is left is burned. The alcohol extract is medicinal, and the liquid can be painted on things, to heal, and to preserve them (such as mummies).

FAERY INCENSE

Contents will vary according to supplies, to intuition, and to region. This is a base Formula.

NOTES: Do not powder or machine grind this incense: the ingredients should be mixed but allowed to remain in original leaf ,berry, and resin, rough forms. Equal parts by weight, say 1 ounce each (which means more flowers, less leaves, and less berries in bulk) of all or most of the following:

1: Feverfew/vervain/tansy/mugwort/mistletoe leaf and berries/elecampane root /hellbore/hawthorne berries and flowers/juniper berries/broom flowers/ red rose petals/rose hips/vetivert/oakmoss.

Other optional ingredients to include are: hops/cronewort/rosemary (less of this)/thyme(especially seeds)/fern seeds/rowan berries and or flowers/elderberry flowers and or berries/poppy seeds/lemon balm/wormwood/cedar wood (powder or shavings)/pine resins in moderation as some are very strong.

2: Add: equal parts by weight (1 ounce, or 1/2 ounce, or 1/4 ounce depending on how resinous or herbally you want the mix to burn of: benzoin powder/ frankincense powder or Grains/white copal ( if you wish for USA, but not for use in Europe).

3: Valerian root (use 1/3rd of a part, whatever base weight you use for One Part per herb or resin ex: if you use parts of 1 ounce, pound, or tonne each, use Valerian in 1/3 ounce, pound, tonne) NOT 1/3 weight of your total mix, which the recipe may seem to suggest incorrectly.

4: Next add: organic or at least natural pure rose oil: 20-30 drops. Do not use synthetic. Other essential oils that may be added instead of rose, or sometimes in addition are vetivert, oakmoss(makes sharper incense). Amber and Labdanum (rock rose) deepen the tone of the incense.Do not use synthetics.

MIXING and STORING
Blend the mixture by shaking thoroughly and sealing in an airtight glass jar. Shake occasionally, to blend the resins and oils into the leaves. This incense improves with shaking and storage. After six months it is really well blended, though you can (of course) use it straight away if you have to. Burn on charcoal: use liberally until the room is thick with smoke and everyone is coughing (well, that's how I like to do it, you might wish to moderate your use according to need).
