Do you use Incense in Oils as part of your daily activities?
The three of us spend a few hours a day picking herbs, and gathering ingredients (sometimes we have to buy some from a metaphysical shop). We use recipes passed down from our family.
We grind by hand with a mortar and pestle to make out own incense. We make our own oils as well.
The experience of creating them from by hand is amazing. You get so much joy from grinding and feeling it turn to powder. It’s very relaxing and peaceful.
We make sure we thank every ingredient for it’s contribution and make sure nothing is wasted.
I will start to share some of our recipes for incense and oils.
Some smell amazing some not so great, but these are not all used for enjoyment, they are used for their magical properties.
I will make sure to include any rituals that these recipes go with and if you should burn outdoors or indoors.
Let me know if anyone else makes their own and what you use yours for.
