How to Make Your Own Incense Cones

Basic Recipe:

· Dissolve Gum Arabic in water, approximately one part powder to two parts water.

· Allow the material to soak for approximately three hours.

· In the meantime grind the herbal material to be used until it is finely powdered (using mortar and pestle or other grinding tool).

· Mix this powder into the liquid until it can be shaped into small cones.
(Add food dye if you want a colourful result, but be aware that it will stain your hands)

· Allow to dry completely in a warm area.

Incense Recipes – These can be smouldered on charcoal blocks, or used to make cones and sticks by adding to the Gum Arabic solution.
