Incense and Herb Bead supplies do not ship outside the U.S.
White Sage Liquid Smudge
We grew and distilled some lovely White Sage (Salvia apiana). The resulting hydrosol is perfect for clearing the air and bringing a more peaceful sense when burning incense is not an option.
We have 1 and 2 ounce spray bottles of "Liquid Smudge", or handy 5 ml spray bottles of "Pocket Smudge" that can go along wherever you go.
Juniper Rope Incense
Tibetan Juniper Dhoop Rope Incense
50 sticks, 5" long
These are handmade with the herbs and resins being skillfully distributed over a length of thin paper, and then twisted to make a rope. Beautiful to watch being made.
Buddha Rope Incense
Tibetan Amitabha Buddha Rope Incense
46 sticks, 3.5 inches long.
Charcoal for Incense
These self-igniting charcoal disks are great for burning resins and loose incense blends. 10 disks to a package, they last nearly an hour each.
Note: Because of their shape/size, shipping charges are high - so it's best to order them along with some resins or maybe you need a brass screen incense burner!
Come See Me Incense
With a nod to Scott Cunningham's oil by this name, this loose blend combines the patchouli and cinnamon, but we turn it up with myrrh, rose petals and violets.
Spicy and lush, full of longing and romance.
Loose incense if typically burned on charcoal disks (we have them!) outdoors or with windows open.
1 ounce by volume.
Wide Open Spaces Incense
This loose incense blend of white sage, lavender, and copal will clear your thoughts like a long walk in nature, and make your home feel clear and open.
Loose incenses are typically burned on specially made charcoal disks with good circulation.
1 ounce by volume.
Powdered blend of yellow sandalwood, benzoin resin, rose geranium, lemon verbena and cardamom is so delightful that I want to wear the scent. Perfect burned in the moonlight!
Meant to be burned on specially made charcoal disks in an area with good circulation.
1 ounce by volume
Sun God Incense
Sun God is full of warm sunny ingredients such as frankincense, cinnamon, orange, calendula, rose, rosemary, mint, lavender, sandalwood, dragon's blood, and blood orange essential oil. Like sitting on the pinnacle of a cliff with your face to the sun.
Loose incense blends are typically burned on specially made charcoal disks in an area with good circulation.
1 ounce by volume.
Brass Screen Incense Burner
If you burn resins or loose incense blends on charcoal, this is THE burner to have. The screen holds the charcoal, and there is a separate wooden base to help diffuse the heat to protect furniture. 3" diameter.
Rope Incense Burner
Incense is suspended vertically from the gold metal stand to burn unimpeded. A white (easy to clean) fire-proof tile is included as the base.
Wooden Incense Burner
Plain wooden burner for sticks. Slanted hole holds stick at an angle to the burner so that the ashes are caught on the wood rather than everywhere else.
Padmini Dhoop Incense
Sweet, floral scent is one of my favorites. The sticks are mini's - only 2.5" with 10 sticks per package. Each box has a rivet on the top that functions as an incense holder while it burns. I ran across these in an ashram's gift shop a decade ago and have never been without a few boxes ever since.
Herbal Incense Booklet and Kit
We call this one a "just add water" kit because there are two packets of pre-blended incense powders included, along with the booklet that tells you how to create more.
Making Your Own Incense
by Tina Sams and Maryanne Schwartz. We wrote this one back in '99 for Storey Publications. Everything you need to know to start out making incense. Great little 32-pager.
Herb Beads - how to and recipes
Short booklet (20 pages of text) with easy to follow instructions for making beads out of botanicals. Step-by-step photos and several different recipes to try. Information gleaned from years of giving classes on bead-making. Small but mighty! Color cover, saddle-stitched.
Botanical Bead Powders
We've taken some of the best, most fragrant herbs and spices and made pre-mixed powders for you to make into beads.
All you need to do is add a liquid - water, wine, hydrosols ... form into beads, and string on sturdy wire to dry.
Mix and match for interesting pieces. Approx. 1/8 cup per tube.
Astragalus gumifer used as a bonding agent in handmade incense and herbal beads. 1/8 tsp. to 1 ounce of warm water forms a great "glue" for these projects.
Salt Petre - 1 ounce
Added to incense blends to make them self-igniting. Used in a proportion of 1 to 10 by weight (10 parts of a combination resins, botanicals, and woods - see our book, Making Your Own Incense).
Myrrh - 1 ounce
Commiphora myrrha - a reddish brown resin with a deep, dark, haunting scent. Often combined with other resins, particularly frankincense.
Frankincense tears - 1 ounce
Boswellia carteri produces the bright sunny smelling sap known as frankincense.
