Incense: Crafting & Use of Magickal Scents
The New and Expanded 2nd Edition
I am so excited about this new release! Not many authors get the chance to go back and re-write their first book. I was thrilled when Llewellyn enthusiastically agreed to publish this new version. 11 years after the first edition was published, this new and expanded version includes new techniques, a massive expansion of the ingredient chart, twice as many recipes as the original edition, and all new illustrations.
Everyone at Llewellyn did an awesome job creating this greatly expanded version of the book while holding true to the look and feel of the original. The new illustrations truly enhance the text and are beautifully drawn. I hope that this new edition finds a home on the bookshelf of anyone who uses incense.
Even if you never make a single stick or cone of incense, understanding how incense is made is critical information for anyone who buys incense.
With new recipes and information on dozens of new ingredients, this expanded and updated edition of Incense is an essential guide to making your own homemade blends with natural ingredients. Join author Carl F. Neal as he presents an extensive collection of incense knowledge, including 129 recipes and helpful descriptions of 125 ingredients, twenty-nine base materials, sixteen binders, and two new rituals.
Whether you want to make loose, stick, coil, or cone incense, this comprehensive edition provides detailed instructions for everything from finding the right ingredients to proper drying methods. With expanded sections on basic techniques, natural charcoal, and shopping for ingredients at the local super-market, this is the perfect book to help you explore your "scentuality."
