Below are some recipes to make your own special blends of incense. The book uses a measurement called "drams", here is a conversion chart to show what measurement a "dram" is;

1/8 Fl. oz = 1 dram = 1/2 tsp. + 1/8 tsp.
1/4 Fl. oz. = 2 drams = 1/2 tbsp.
1/2 Fl. oz. = 4 drams = 1 tbsp.


When making each incense, put all herbs into a mortar or a cauldron (or any type of pot large enough to hold all the ingredients). The recipes below make large batches, if you wish to make a smaller batch just cut the amounts down but keep the ratio specified. After all ingredients are added to the pot, grind them all together to make a fine/semi-fine powder. To burn, sprinkle desired amount over a piece of lit charcoal (you can buy special charcoal pieces made for this purpose). Keep in a sealed jar (preferably one that has an airlock seal to keep it fresh).

Can you recommend something I can use in the place of tincture of benzoin for the "sooth anger" incense...!? My local Witchy shop isn't as well-stocked as it could be even tho the people working there are lovely.

All I can really find is how to make it at home-
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.

I also found out that it has a lot of medical uses Smile you should look it up. It is very interesting. You can order online. If you have a health foods store pretty close, they may carry it. Smile

Though online may be cheaper-- I have no idea. Maybe get the numbers of the stores and ask if they have it/ prices first and compare lol
