Yesterday I made my own incense!  A woodsy scent of Frankincense and Sandalwood.  A friend posted directions on his blog, and I followed them.  Here’s his blog entry:

These are the quantities that are suggested (once you read the blog you will understand):

2 heaping tablespoons of Sandalwood
1 heaping tablespoon of Frankincense
5 or 6 tonka beans
1 teaspoon of black pepper corns
1 heaping tablespoon of benzoin

Then add about twice that much makko.

A fun project!
