Yule Incense

2 parts frankincense resin
2 parts myrrh resin
1 part mistletoe
1 part clove (whole)
1 part cinnamon
This recipe is the one I used for Yule this year, it burns well as an incense but could be used as a non-burning offering, added to salt dough for decorations or used for all manner of seasonal projects. It is not, however, suitable for youngsters to handle, so if adding it to a salt dough mix or such be sure not to let kids work with it, and as with all herbal work, wash your hands thoroughly after handling the herbs, particularly before working with anything that will be ingested.

  2. @ D.Suplicki - Thankyou, it is one of my favourite blends for Yule :) seasons greetings and blessings to you x

    *** Also, just a quick note to say I've altered the ratio of resins as it was meant to say 2 parts frankincense and 2 parts myrrh not equal parts of each ingredient (my brain has most definitely been overworked these last few weeks, lol) ***
