Herbal Incense & Incense Resins

Herbal Incense & Incense Resins

Here at Indigo Herbs, we stock a wide range of herbal incense, each known for their individual fine and powerful scents and also perfect for making incense blends. You will find many ingredients for incense making and burning, as well as burners, charcoal and our own range of incense blends. All our incense is 100% natural, loose, non combustible materials which can be burnt on charcoal disks. The aromas are sensual powerful and evocative. You can blend different types of incense together or burn them alone. We have a wide selection of resins, gums, herbs, spice powders, flowers, fruit peels, woods and crystals. All the incense we sell is 100% pure and of a botanical origin. They are also all free from synthetic fragrances, binders or burning agents.

Incense Resin Burning

Burning incense is an ancient natural art that has benefits that are medicinal and atmospheric. Incense has been burnt in ceremonies for thousands of years and some believe that the vibration of the various plants themselves are responsible for creating a specific atmosphere or mood when burnt.

Smells certainly have a huge, if often subconscious effect on the psyche and natural incense smoke is no exception to this. It has been used at some point in almost every spiritual practice from the biggest world-wide religions, to the most secret cults, the free-est hippies to individual hedge-witches.

Natural incense smoke is often powerful and quite thick, so get in the mood for some aromatic drama, sit back and enjoy. Because of their potency, caution is recommended if burning natural incense in the presence of babies or very small children.

Choosing & blending natural incense

To help you choose incense ingredients either to burn individually or to make your own blends, we have created a choosing and blending wheel which defines the action, aroma and note of each of these ingredients. Incense blending is the first form of perfumery so go ahead explore your senses and conjure up some incense blends to create and enhance the mood.

Incense Blending

Incense blending is a deep, personal, evocative, playful and sensual ritual. It’s all about drinking in flavours with your nose and feeling the aromas with your whole self.
What does a scent make you feel or think? Does it bring memories; does it inspire your imagination and your creative dreamer? What aromas do you like, which aromas bring you to earth, heaven, to rest or play? Where do the scents take you? Blending incense is a like painting a picture, writing a piece of music, or making a meal. It’s also like fixing an engine or decoding a riddle. What ingredients work together, in what quantities? It’s an opportunity to be a creator or creatrix. Then later when you sit back and enjoy your endeavours it’s like eating the meal, wearing the dress, riding the bike, listening to the song. What do you want your incense blend to say? Thank you, welcome, new beginnings, goodbye, I love you, journey to forgotten places.

Peoples of the earth have been mixing aromas for thousands of years, so it is human nature to work with the evocative power of nature’s sensual smells. By working with this power we can harness the energy of the herbs, woods, resins, gums, flowers and seeds. In this way the plant medicines bring their subtle beneficial gifts and natural healing qualities.

Good to do business with you
I am impressed and grateful that my echinacea bottles come wrapped in a corrugated cardboard and no longer bubble wrap which is very bad for the environment. If you can do it Indigo then other companies should be able to follow your example. Well done you. My order arrived very quickly and I placed my order on the phone with a friendly efficient member of staff.

Been ordering teas and herbs regularly from Indigo Herbs for a couple of years now and keep returning as they are reliable, with a great range of good quality products, with plenty of advice on their website for how to use the less familiar herbs.
