Students should bring a notebook or paper and a pen or pencil if they wish to take notes and record their own recipes. Basic handouts will be provided. All materials are provided by the instructor.

This workshop will teach you the important differences between the many kinds of incense, including which to avoid and how to tell. You will learn the original art of incense-making and each student will make one set of combustible incense sticks or cones which they will roll from a customized recipe provided, as well as one non-combustible loose incense mixture or set of incense pellets which they can blend as they choose from approximately 20 herbs including rose, sage, lavender, patchouli, saffron, sandalwood and many more. You will learn how to choose ingredients, and the methods for burning non-combustible incense as well as receive instruction and handouts for:

Basic Incense-Making Materials and Equipment
Ingredient List & Mixing Guidelines
Basic Incense-Making Instructions
Directions for Making a Simple Incense Stove
Sample Loose-Incense Recipes
Incense-Making Resource Guide
Please note that your incense will still be wet when you leave class and will need to be gently transported home to finish drying!

Instructor’s bio:
I have been making incense for over 6 years, since my daughter was a baby and I got picky about products. Always an incense-enthusiast, I would often come up against the common problem of not knowing what kind of incense to buy; why do some smell so great and some just smell like smoke and give me a headache when both are supposedly the same scent? On a mission to find out, I delved into the world of incense and herbs, extensively researching the industry and process. What I discovered was very eye-opening and led me to the decision to create my own incense; there simply wasn’t anything on the market that was up to my standards! Using ancient traditional incense-making methods I began making my own line of whole-herb incense, from scratch, using just barks, leaves, herbs, and other parts of plants.
