I will definitely be buying this book, and making my own soaps and incenses. Feb 21, Penny rated it really liked it. A great, resource book to have on the shelf. Sep 26, Kathy rated it it was amazing Shelves: An encyclopedia for making one's own incense or oils. It's a lot harder then it looks. The recipes are simple to understand.
But finding the ingredients can be challenging. Also it requires a ton of patience that most people like myself don't have. It's so much easier to go to the nearest Pagan store and buy incense. Although oils are not as hard to make, they also require patience. Plus one has to test them out before making the perfect batch. There's a science to making oils.
The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews by Scott Cunningham
If one puts too m An encyclopedia for making one's own incense or oils. If one puts too much oil of one thing it could make it too strong and overpower the other smells. Too much carrier oil and it becomes too weak. Still an interesting and educational book. The brews aren't that exciting in my opinion so not really the point of the book.

The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews
It does a great job of explaining the basics of pagan herbalism. The only thing I don't like about it is some of the recipes contain toxic herbs like hemlock, belladonna, mistletoe, etc. Jun 27, Brad rated it it was amazing. The copy of this book in our house actually belongs to my partner, Maple This book have proven to be the wonderful guide and set of instructions for us! Maple now makes all the incense we use in circle and to date has made a sabbat blend, prosperity blend, house cleansing blend, and more!
Jun 29, Pamela rated it really liked it Shelves: This is my absolute favorite witchy ingredient reference book. When I do spellwork, I pick and choose between many different sources, but I always go to Cunningham's first. This book provides recipes for oils, incense, potions, and so much more, along with appendices full of correspondences and information. Jan 03, Juli Anna rated it liked it Shelves: As a practical guide for DIY incense and magical herbalism, this book does the job. I am not Wiccan, so much of the info here is a little whimsical for me, but the how-to stuff is great.
This is definitely inspiring me to create my own burnables and incense as well as to look into the symbolic and spiritual qualities of herbs, rather than just their medicinal qualities. Jan 07, Pagan Hare rated it it was amazing Shelves: The reason for the long reading period is, well, you don't stop reading this kind if book. Even though I have put an end date I'll be picking this book when ever time I need information on how to create a particular incense, brew etc.
Jan 10, Aaron Meyer rated it really liked it Shelves: I got to admit I have a soft spot in my heart for this book. Some of the recipes are pretty good and the tables help out in whipping up something that you need if you can't find it already laid out in the book. Apr 30, Sicily rated it really liked it. Great resource for herbal recipes and correspondences. A few downsides were his repetitiveness around not using synthetics and his slight Wiccan superiority complex. Still a must have for those interested in simple herbal magic.
Jan 28, Yvonne rated it it was amazing Shelves: Excellent resource for anyone wanting to explore the world of making and working with incense, essential oils, tinctures and so forth. Great for the advanced and beginner. As always, I love Scott Cunningham's work! Nov 28, Gaile rated it really liked it Shelves: This includes an explanation of magic, what oils, incense and brews are used for, followed by recipes divided into each category.
All are used in Wiccan magic to heal, as a cure for depression and many other magic portions. Good for the followers of the Wican Religion.
