I have researched into the recipes and come up with as authentic a recipe as I can. The incense takes several weeks to prepare and then several more weeks to dry. Once dried it is burnt on charcoal disks and produces a beautiful full-bodied, rich, multi-layered bouquet with a warm, relaxing, sweet, spicy and sensual aroma to cleanse and perfume the air. Excellent for use in a ritual or as an offering to a deity.
For my Kyphi I have hand ground all the herbs and resins in a pestle and mortar and have used home made wine.
Today was the last day of preparing the Kyphi and I spent the afternoon rolling it into pellets and moulding small bricks. They now need to dry for a few weeks and will then be listed in my Etsy shop.
