How to make your own incense
Here is how to make your own incense. Making incense is fun but it takes some special preparation and supplies to do it correctly.
Let us assume for this project you want to make 100 of the 11-inch sticks.
Here is what you will need in supplies...
Important: Do not use anything that contains alcohol or that can be dispensed through a sprayer. Do not use a perfume oil product from a department store as it contains alcohol.
Plastic food containers may not be substituted for the stainless-steel containers.
How to begin...
Information regarding ratios...
***If your PERFUME OIL has a strong fragrance your ratio to DPG may need to be greater.***
After 24-48 hours soaking in the oil mixture...
When the excess oil mixture has drained from the sticks...
***If you can add some air from a fan or air conditioner to lightly blow across the sticks that will speed up the drying process. If not, just wait a few days until the sticks appear to be dry to the touch.
A good dryness test is to lay a single sheet of toilet paper across the layer of sticks, wait a few minutes and see if there are oil spots...
For all the technical people out there the moisture content should be no greater than 28%.
Light and enjoy!
