If a packet of incense is divided into 7 parts and in a cone shape, how long will each cone burn? I need to burn a packet over a 7 day ritual (Love Me Spell Kit) and am wondering the timing.

Those would be huge cones - I get at least 12 or more from a packet.
The cones burn about 5-8 minutes in my experience, from the size cones that I make. Yours may vary due to size, how "tight" you can get your cones, etc.

Honey Pot Incense

Unread postby gemini » Tue Mar 09, 2010 9:30 pm

I saw a picture of incense burning in a honey pot before it was assembled but it didn't really give a description beyond that. If I wanted to would you suggest dumping the ahes out before you assemble? keep them in? Dont burn any at all? Or maybe pass the jar through the smoke up side down? I've never made a honey pot before and was reading up on them. I thought this was ininteresting idea. Also what type of incense would you use? Thanks!

Sounds odd to me. Like someone is combining two different ideas in a meaninglessly complicated way. I wouldn't want incense ashes in my honey. For one thing, you could not cook with it to serve the target your sweetening spell in food.

Most people would rather have incense burning on the altar while putting the honey jar together. You might smoke the empty jar -- suffumigate it -- before pouring honey into it, using an incense related to what the honey jar spell was related to -- for instance pass the jar over Money Drawing incense before pouring the honey in and setting it up to draw customers to your business -- but in reality, i have never seen such a thing done.

Perhaps these pages will be of help:

I like that idea better, passing through the smoke and just letting it burn in the workspace. less messy ^.^ I'm looking back on the article and i suppose it was more for the art of it than for any practical use. Thank you for the advice!

I just form a tight cone shape in the incense powder with my fingers, and then light the tip. Or, you can burn it on a charcoal, but it burns VERY fast that way since it's intended to self0burn - it's better to let it burn at it's own pace.

Incense does kinda smell like smoke, ya know. ;)

What you have to remember is that LuckyMojo incense powders are real, made with the correct traditional herbs,roots and minerals, and they lack the synthetics that ordinary incense is so often soaked in, so they will not smell like them, they will smell like burning herbs and root and the essential oils. People are used to the fake stuff that it can be hard to get used to the real thing.

If you have a thimble or an LM snuffer those can be used to make incense "cones." A little practice using a small half-circle of paper rolled up into a cone and you'll be able to make the shape you want.

Once you light the tip, I find that gently blowing on it to get the sparks going helps for a steady and burn on the incense.

Open windows if you have them, or before you start doing your spell kit, get some incense sticks or scented candles and burn them. That way your brother and any other family will get used to the fact of incensey smells coming from your room and won't think twice about it when you actually start doing your work.

This might sound CRAZY, but I use a honey jar for drawing money from clients. I put a sprinkle of Money Drawing Incense on the top of a green tea light (dressed with Money Drawing, Steady Work, and Money Stay With Me oils) and I set the tea light on top of my honey jar. It has worked for me. I love the smell and I have watched each tea light *spark* just like a sparkler.

I was fortunate to receive a gift of funnels and one was small enough for perfect cones and I have been using it every since. When doing spells I have enough for 7 and 9 days with some to spare but as Devi said it really depends on the size of the cones.

Old DeLaurence "Temple Incense" equivalent at Lucky Mojo?

I would recommend getting some Frankincense and Myrrh resin and just blending that together, as that is the main base of most church and temple blends in the West.

Depending on the exact recipe those sometimes contain benzoin resin, or copal resins, and sometimes a floral note such as rose.

http://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatincense.html#resin

You could also use the LM Blessing incense, which is similar in make-up to some versions of temple blends.

Cognativedissonance:

There is nothing like grinding your own frankincense and myrrh with a mortar and pestle! So much time and energy taken to make it and it smells wonderful. True "Temple" Incense! You can also control the ratio to the exact pleasing scent or vibration/effect you like.

Both are found here:

Also, if you are looking at old catalogues and are interested in DeLaurence's Black Incense Powder circa 1910 - 1960 or Valmor's Lucky Spirit Incense circa 1925 - 1970, they were one and the same blend and Lucky Mojo is the only compnay now that makes that receipe, which we call Lucky Mojo Brand Lucky Spirit Black Incense Powder.

One way to control the amount of smoke that incense puts out is to purn it on a charcoal disk. You set the charcoal going, put it in a brazier or burner, then dribble a little bit of powdered incense on the charcoal. Depending on how much you dribble onto it, you will get either a thin line of incense or big fat clouds of incense. You can control it very well that way.

I agree with Cat on using a charcoal disk. At this time, the disability I am inconvenienced with affects my hands so making cones has been a challenge, however the use of a charcoal disk is wonderful.

Those of you who will read this and never worked with the charcoal disk may want to consider breaking the charcoal disks in halfs or quarters. In my opinion, it is a waste for me to burn a whole disk if the work is only 15 minutes. I will use a full disk if I know the work is going to take me an hour, then use the halfs and quarters for shorter times.

Play with this thought and see what works for you. Charcoal disks are a great item to have on hand.

Blessings.

If your forming it into a cone there is no reason to use charcoal. You simply turn the cone out ,of whatever you used to form it, onto a non-flammable surface such as an incense burner. You then light the tip, gently blowout the flame, and enjoy.

Something that works for me is to make multiple small cones. As one cone dies down, you simply light the next one and continue with your work. Unused cones can be put back for later use. It saves you from smoking yourself out by using a larger cone, and from using a charcoal tablet since the incense powder is self-lighting anyways. Just a suggestion, your mileage may vary. :D

Loose Powder and ResIn Icenses Questions and Answers

Unread postby sunstallion » Wed Mar 02, 2011 11:12 pm

To cast a spell, how much incense is needed to burn when you say your intention ? because I usually burn it outside my house and watch over it, and burn it alot. But it has been raining very hard and very windy for the past few days. I could not do it so I brought it inside to do it, but my family can't smell it and told me to stop. They can't smell any incenses. So, I wonder if I burn just burn very very tiny little, enough to lightly smell it, would it be enough to cast a spell ?

Thanks

I usually don't use a lot of incense because of sensitivity to smoke. It works just fine for me to work with just a little bit. This depends on what kind of work you are doing with the incense. If you are cleansing the home, only using incense, I'd say it's better to use a lot and clear out the house with all the doors open when your family isn't home. If you burn it in addition to candle work for example, for me, a little is sufficient.

Sunstallion,

Lucky Mojo Incense packets weigh one ounce. You will be able to burn the contents of one packet for quite some time, or burn it over several days. Make one small cone or use one pinch at a time.

When you buy a Lucky Mojo Curio Co. spell kit, your one-ounce packet of incense is more than enough to burn for many days of spell work.

The amount of smoke you enjoy or can tolerate will vary based on whether you do the work outdoors, like the smell and effect of incense generally, and so forth.

As has been stated in the tread, there is no cut and dried answer. There is no point where it becomes the right amount and your going to get results. It is a matter of preference and situation. I personally prefer to burn a goodly amount of incense because I enjoy the smell and I find the large billowing clouds of incense smoke aesthetically pleasing, but there are times when I will burn a smaller portion, if I'm running low and need to stretch till my next order comes in or if I am a bit short on time and can't stay for a large amount to burn down.

If you want an exact measurement of how much incense powder I or anyone else uses your probably out of luck, I know I don't measure it out and I do not think anyone else does.

Sunstallion, look at the pictures i showed you. Do you see how big Carin's hand is next to the cone of incense? That's how big she makes her cones. I make mine a considerable bit smaller.

Here's another way to make cones -- in a candle snuffer. We sell the small ones for $2.00 and the larger ones for $3.00, and the size difference is in the handle length, not the size of the cone-- you can buy one and use it and all your cones will be perfectly the same in size. Order here:

Hi all,

One way I've been doing it is by creating a mold with a double-layer of tinfoil. When I first read about using the candle snuffer technique, I did that. But my current snuffer has a wide bell and it made a gargantuan incense cone--too big for my purposes. I imagine the snuffers being sold by Lucky Mojo would make a more reasonable size. In any case, my solution was to press tinfoil over a pen cap and then use that to shape the incense. It works fairly well.

then if you bought the small one from lucky mojo, then you have the tool to make an incense cone.

I personally use a dish with sand and make a little dip into the sand and pour the incense directly into there and make it heap up into a little mountain. I use as much as would fit in a spoon. I find that amount perfect for spell work and perfuming a room as well.

The old De Laurence catalogues from the 1930s say that Sandalwood and Patchouli are the main fragrances in "Temple Incense."

This thread actually turned up in the Google search results when I was googling for more info about the stuff... I've lately acquired a small amount. I can tell you that Nag Champa is not dissimilar.

The approximately 80 year old sample of Temple incense is a loose powder but I don't think it's self lighting -- though Sandalwood is definitely the bulk of the formula so it probably could burn on its own if you tried. It has some extra spices and a tiny bit of a floral scent -- I think it may be plumeria or frangipani. It's not a lot of fragrance -- really, the mixture is probably 90% sandalwood in both smell and substance -- though I suppose it might be a little weaker now than when it was fresh-made. It does not contain any resins.

I got Lucky Spirit, and I love it. When she says "economical", she MEANS it! :-D I bought two bags and now I have enough to last me through Doomsday. Mad props.

Also, that's some amazing research, Malefic.

Re: How much smoke does incense emit?

Interesting discussion. I'm enjoying meditating and other work done with the Master Key incense I got from LM. It's very good. Some time ago, I learned the hard way about the smoke that the charcoal disks emit. Quartering the disks seems to be helpful for short workings.

Lucky Mojo sells a wide range of herbs, which, if mixed with a bonding agent like gum arabic or tragacanth (even better), some "liquid fire" (1/4 tablespoon of saltpeter to every 4 tablespoons of water), and a wood powder base can make very good, clean-burning incense. For example, I'm blending my own "confusion incense" with the herbs I got from LM this way. In this case, controlling the amount of wood powder relative to the aromatic ingredients will help you find the balance between burnability and scent.
