Make Your Own Incense

 
 
 Incense, representing the element of air in most rituals, is quite easy to  make. In making incense you will need to measure some liquids by the dram.
Conversion Chart:
 

 * 1/8 fluid ounce = 1 dram = 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon
 * 1/4 fluid ounce = 2 drams = 1 and 1/4 teaspoons or 1/2 tablespoon
 * 1/2 fluid ounce = 4 drams =1 tablespoon
 * 3/4 fluid ounce = 6 drams = 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 tablespoon
 * 1 fluid ounce = 8 drams = 2 tablespoons

 The following recipes are all for granular incense, the type one burns on a  round of charcoal. DO NOT USE CHARCOAL BRIQUETTES! They give off poisonous  fumes when burned indoors.

To make the incense, first powder all your solid ingredients and mix them  well in your mortar and pestle. In a separate container, mix all of the  liquid ingredients. Dissolve the saltpeter in the liquids. *Slowly* add the liquids to your powdered mixture. Spread in a small tin pan or plastic  container that you do not plan to use for food any longer and allow to dry.  The drying time varies but usually takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour.  When dry, simply crumble up your incense. It is now ready to burn. Several of the  following recipes call for Tincture of Benzoin. To make your own, powder 2  ounces of benzoin gum and add 4 ounces of water and 12 ounces of alcohol.   Keep this mixture bottled and capped tightly for two weeks but do shake it  daily. After two weeks, strain the liquid and bottle it for future  use.
