How It’s Made: Incense

How It’s Made: Incense

I get a lot of questions about the process of how I make Diviiine ‘Scense’s lovely incense. I’m excited to share my labor of love with you all.

So, I want to start by saying I love how so many people are becoming conscious and intentional about where they buy their items and who is making them. It’s not a new movement, but it’s one that I’ve seen gradually becoming more popular. I dig that. Let’s keep it going.

The incense are hand dipped with clean burning fuel and essential oils.

I like to shop for my essential oils from reputable businesses, mostly small businesses. This has been a learning process for me as I have learned so much throughout my training to become a master aromatherapist. I have trained my nose to discern whether an essential oil is synthetic or real. It sometimes can be hard to tell but not impossible. This can vary from color to viscosity and the intensity of the fragrance notes of the oil. It sounds like a lot I know, but to me it’s worth it.

Once dipped in the formula mixture that I have made, it’s time to wait.

I let them cook(soak) in a cool place away from sunlight, sealed, for 2 to 3 days. This helps to create an intense lasting aroma.

After the period of soaking, I put them outside to be sun-dried.

This could take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours depending on the weather. I check to make sure they are fully dry. It’s around this time that I usually see bees buzzing about confused as to why they can’t find the flower they think they’re smelling. It’s really cool to see them fly in to inspect and check out the incense.

Next, it’s time for some Reiki.

For those who don’t know I am a Reiki master. I use energy healing to generate positive healing experiences, safe loving environments, and open communication with the Divine(what ever that may look like for your personal journey) for all who interact and burn this incense.

Last but least, I package them up!

I count them out and place them in their beautiful bronze sustainable packaging, made entirely out of Kraft cardboard. Many of my day ones know the struggle we had with plastic. We’ve come a long way and I’m so proud!

Now they are ready to go home with you!

I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I do making incense! I always tell people and I will continue to yell it from the mountain tops… Aromatherapy has changed my life. For the BETTER. I’m so thankful.
