Creating your own incense is as easy as growing and drying the herbs. Once you get some fresh cut herb of let's say, lavender. Hang the bushel somewhere upside down and let the herbs dry out. Once they are dry, remove the flowers/ leaves from the stalk/stem and place them into a mortar and pestle and ground the petals and leaves into a fine powder. Once prepared you can place the incense powder in an air tight container. Next you will need some self igniting charcoal, and a metal or stone incense cauldron to heat up the little bricks of charcoal. Once you light the charcoal in the incense burner and they are nice and hot, you just cast the ground herbal powder into the cauldron and let the smoke roll.

That's really cool, Cirque! I've never tried this, mainly due to lack of time. And when I do have time, it's because I'm "down" from my RA, so moving around is too painful.

(Grabbing my list of "Things to Do", and adding this too it.) Maybe I can do something like that during my next vacation.
Thanks for the tip, from you, and the others talking about making your own incense.

By the way, since I won't have time to dry the flowers when I'm off, does it work just as well to buy them already dried in a shop?

I am not sure I believe any of it any more. I think that all of the rituals/beliefs are comforters.

interesting thread though

manifestation is about intention. even physics is showing now that we can shape our reality through thought. This is why everything from prayer to rituals work.. it is because there is focused intent that is guided and directed and given form.
sometimes you have to just let go and allow yourself to experience freely. No judgements, just intention. With the right intention you can shield yourself and others.
