Burning incense is one of the most ancient ways to honor the Gods and our connection to them so that we may be reminded of our own inherent divinity and goodness.

Please see Rev. Paul Beyerl’s works, The Master Book of Herbalism and A Compendium of Herbal Magick. No finer works out there on herbalism and incense making. Visit also The Rowan Tree Church.
