    Re: Incense Types & Their Uses

    I read somewhere that burning incense is a good "sacrifice" or burnt offering.

    I have a question: I have all this myrrh resin I bought because I couldn't find any myrrh incense sticks to buy, they always have frankinscence in them too. Anyway, I don't think I like burning the resin on coals, it's so much more expensive, and it doesn't burn evenly for a set amount of time like a stick does.

    Anyway, what can do with this resin? Is there a relatively easy way to make essential oil out of it?

    It's also got a tendency to be a lot smokier and oftentimes I can smell the charcoal very strongly (a smell I find quite unpleasant). So I'm with you on this one.

    Great question. I've got a bunch of it around, too.

    I have some dragon's blood that I sometimes use when clearing, and it's a resin too. Since I don't have coal what I do is burn aromatic wood and put the resin on it. The wood already smells good, (or at least to me), and it complements the aroma.
    I'm not sure how you would go about extracting the smell, since the aromatic part of the resin would likely evaporate unless it's distilled.

    I did some googling, extracting essential oil from the resin actually seems quite easy:

    All you have to do is soak it in rubbing alcohol and the resin dissolves, then let the alcohol evaporate, and voila, you are left with just the essential oil. I tried it out two days ago, I don't think it's done dissolving but I think there will be some debris left in the end.

    Let us know if the resulting oil is aromatic enough to enjoy.

    I used to use lavender and sage incense sticks to make the neg uncomfortable. He hates the smell of it. This particular blend, I get from Amphora Aromatics.

    Re: Incense Types & Their Uses

    I love to burn incense all the time. It gives a peaceful home and helps to project. I burn all types but like the resins and the fatter sticks and cones. I really need to find a nice resin burner, maybe the type with a candle and screen; but can't find one.
    I burn them in the Faery garden and my alley; also.

    Sometimes I just pound and grind different woods, spices, branches, whatever; wrap them in paper and let that smolder.

    Cat-tail punks are real nice to burn outdoors or on a porch, but not in your house!!!
