Purchasing Supplies - For making incense

Guest Laineethepainter

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have been given a 'recipe' for incense and I've been told it's a really powerful 'grounding and clearing' incense, which is ideal for me at the moment. The only problem is this; one of the ingredients listed is Benzoin and I haven't a clue where to get any and the lady who gave me the recipe has just informed me that the shop she got hers from has just gone out of business!! :lol: Can anyone let me know where I can get some in the Wirral/Chester area or online, please, pretty please? Many Thanks in advance from Lainee xx

Many, Many Thanks!! I have spent a long while reading and re-reading all of the wonderful things available on both of these websites. I will be spending lots and lots of money with them both very soon! Thanks once again, I really appreciate your help and the time you took to reply xxx

I too can recommend Pans Pantry...

Very useful for re-enactment goodies too... 'Pete the Pong' the propritor is very knowledgeable and helpful, his wife is lovely too. If you get any delay in delivaries it is usually because they travel in person to source thier items in person from all across the middle and far east from small traders and farmers - so they can personnaly vouch for the quality!

I think that the owners of Pans Pantry should be awarded some form of honour for going to all that trouble, just to ensure that the quality of the goods they sell is 100%!! I do a flea market stall in the local market (doh!! it would be in the market, wouldn't it?!!) and I know how hard it is to bring top quality goods to the customer, so hats off to Pans pantry for going the extra hundred+ miles!! I'm looking forward to shopping with both of these companies, I'm writing a list, checking it twice,......sorry, too early in the year! :D

There are a couple of good ones i use regularly on ebay for good quality things affordably, one is Herbmoon Hollow and the other is HerbalHighMagick. I haven't tried pan's pantry but now feel i want to have a look there too.


My favourite offering incense:


Sandalwood chips

Frankincense resin

Myrrh Resin

Amber resin paste

Rose petals or a few drops of essential oil (or sometimes lotus oil)


Its the most amazing and beautiful pungent smell and the white smoke billows like fog from the cauldron filling up the house and senses :lol:

      I’ve posted a link (in links) to a BBC article in today’s news just to illustrate a bit of the colourful side of Paganism.  Perhaps it will do something to balance my prosaic take on the subject. i know little of Witchcraft but I enjoyed the article and like her approach.

      👍 It's as good a position as any and better than quite a few.

      Yes, it was in Nettle's "Who are your deities?" thread. I said "I seem to have become an atheist. That was never my plan, but here I am." Veggiedancer later said it better than me - "I don’t exactly believe in deities as such. I think they come from  our minds. Archetypes, ways of identify or characterising the spirit/ magic/ life or whatever it is we sense around us. Ways our minds try to explain the unexplainable to us???"

      I’m probably second guessing Nettle wrongly but it wasn’t all that long ago that you would have read posts about alters, magic, Shamanism, spells etc. I think it was either Teatimetreat or Drachenfach that had a hex on her handbag and her car.  When the car was stolen it crashed and the thief was caught. I agree and would very much like to see more of the colourful side of Paganism back here.  Quite right Ellinas.  I do not understand how anyone can claim to be Pantheist (or even pantheist) and atheist at the same time even though the most prominent Pantheists do exactly that.  As I’ve said elsewhere: why can’t they call themselves Panists.  The prefix “pan” means everything and everywhere as in “pandemic”.  The god’s name arose from the adjective so it wouldn’t necessarily mean a devotee of Pan. pee ess - it may be worth mentioning that there are a vast number of belief groups under the umbrella word Paganism.  Druids Witches, Polytheist and Shaman are only a small part of what the greater picture of Paganism depicts. Dunno and don’t care are probably the biggest groups.

      All the above, plus the impression of a preponderance of atheism is currently, as well as historically, inaccurate.  Certainly, I am no atheist.  I believe MS rejects the term as applicable to himself.  Stonehugger, I think, recently said he had headed in that direction, but I've not seen the other resident atheists for a while. However, our ideas of deity are not the same, necessarily.
