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:

      It happens rarely. My clearest recollection is of realising that I was dreaming of driving my first car.  I decided it would be interesting if it would fly and then decided to disappear into a mass of red clouds. I've also found myself facing some rather unfriendly, snake eyed rabbits in a warren.  I think that was my first lucid dream.  I had been flying (again) over the countryside and decided to go underground.  I was very young at the time. Nothing deep or particularly spiritual, I'm afraid.  Imagination plays more of a part in my practice than does lucid dreaming.

      Hi everyone, Hope you're well.  I've been discussing lucid dreaming with a friend and it led me to want to ask folk on here how, if at all, lucid dreaming forms part of your pagan path?  Some of my experiences of a heightened sense of reality, vividness and impactfulness of experience, have been through lucid dreams.  The feeling of being aware that one is dreaming and able to make conscious choices and even alter the 'outer' aspects of the content of the dream is quite unmistakable.  I've engaged with some whom I consider to be personified deity and Otherworldly mentors in this way. Experiences that I'll always carry with me. I would love to hear of your thoughts or experiences of lucid dreaming. Best  ED

      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???"
