Once a month we make incense to celebrate the full moon. We use natural ingredients such as resins, woods, herbs and dried flowers. Adding and graining the different ingredients is relaxing and magical at the same time.
For today's full moon we mixed and grained;
2 parts sandalwood
1 part mastic
1 part myrrh
and a handful of dried rose petals.
It makes me very happy to witness my son discovering the different fragrances and enjoying the special mood of making incense together.
Watching the smoke and enjoying these wonderful ancient scents is such a lovely experience.
