Put dry ingredients in a large glass bowl, mix thoroughly, now add wet ingredients a little at a time-(you may want to use gloves as this stuff gets sticky)
Once mixed to a consistency of pie dough so all will hold together, Roll long skinny ropes out on a wax paper sheet…cut the rope into small little pea sized parts roll in a ball, set on a cookie sheet with wax paper. When all is cut and rolled, set the cookie sheet up and turn the peas daily. When all is mixed and you have all on your cookie sheet, consecrate them as you would any other item…To dry them correctly takes about 2 weeks.
When all are dried, light a charcoal and let it get ashy, then add peas for aroma…
I found using my pestle and mortar, good on some things but, to get them very fine, I put them in a coffee grinder, so much faster and so much finer. I have a coffee grinder bought and consecrated especially for my workings… I am a modern old witch with not a lot of power left in my hands. I usually say some kind of chant while grinding even with the coffee grinder and chant when adding to jars. use your own special chant.
