Incense Recipes

Making your own incense allows you to use fragrances and blends that you particularly enjoy. Read about how to make incense, and then try some of the following recipes.

In the recipes, one "part" can be any size depending on how much incense you want to make. For instance, 1 part could be 1 gram, 1 teaspoon, or 1 cup. If you decide 1 part should represent 1 teaspoonful, then use that measurement consistently throughout the recipe you are blending.

If you don't have a particular ingredient in the right form, you can often substitute other forms. For example, if you don't have frankincense resin, try substituting a few drops of frankincense essential oil for each part in the recipe. If you don't have lavender essential oil, substitute dry lavender flowers. Feel free to experiment.
