3 Ways to Resin Heaven

by Andrea Butje on December 6, 2011

Resin blendsMaking your own resin blends is easy–and they make great gifts!

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.

Breathe Deep

1 oz Frankincense resin
1 oz Myrrh resin
Sprinkle of Cardamom powder
Sprinkle of dried Rosemary
10 drops Hemlock essential oil

Sweet Aroma

1 oz Opopanax resin
1 oz Benzoin resin
Sprinkle of Vanilla powder
5 drops Balsam Poplar essential oil

Inward Journey

1 oz Copal resin
1 oz Pinon Pine resin
Sprinkle of Palo Santo Wood powder
10 drops Frankincense essential oil

Hi Francesca – resin blend making is so much fun! You can use Cedarwood or Siberian Fir in place of the Hemlock 🙂
