Hand-made incense has been a treasured craft as long as humans have tended fires and foraged from the world around them. Incense has been an important part of spiritual and cleansing rites, used for ceremonies, cleansing the air and creating sacred space.
Learn the ancient skill of making your own herbal incense from medicinal, aromatic and resinous herbs. This 2-hour live interactive online workshop will teach you how to make several different forms of incense, work with easy kitchen materials and create custom blends from plants that grow all around us. We will also discuss the therapeutic properties of the herbs used in the class.
What We Send You: we send out a box prior to the workshop with ethically wildcrafted herbs and materials you will need for making several herbal incense blends.
What Materials will you need for the live class? a spice or coffee bean grinder, wood clippers, a sifter or sieve, any type of paintbrush for collecting fine powder particles, measuring spoons, liquid of your choice (herbal tea, water or hydrosol), medium and small size bowls for mixing (3) and several spoons.
Students will make at least 2-3 forms of incense made in the live class, and receive several recipes for making natural herbal incense. International shipping is not available for this workshop. Students who want to participate from outside of the US can request a list of the herbs we are sending out to source locally.
