To make resin blends, simply mix the resins together in a bowl, sprinkle on your powders or dried herbs, add a few drops of essential oil, and mix. Let this sit for a day or two and you’re ready to burn the resins.
You can burn the resins on charcoal tabs or on bamboo charcoal briquettes in a ceramic bowl. Simply light the charcoal or briquette with a lighter, make sure it is heating up and then add a few pieces of your resin blend on the top.
Here are a few resin blends I make often.
1 oz Copal resin
1 oz Pinon Pine resin
Sprinkle of Palo Santo Wood powder
10 drops Frankincense essential oil
