The Water Element is the energy of healing, and cleansing emotions, and thus is used as an enhancing energy for compassion, friendship, love, peace, reconciliation, calming, dreams and sleep.

Water Element ingredients help to gently merge the energies in a recipe.

You can build your own recipes by choosing two or more aromatics from the Water Element Ingredients list.

Water Element Incense Ingredients

Top notes are the first aromas we smell. They're often lighter, sweeter and spicier, and diffuse into the air very quickly.

Middle notes (heart notes) diffuse into the air more slowly. They give body and fullness to a recipe.

Base notes are the longest lasting scents and most "fixed" of all. Most Base note ingredients are also "fixatives" meaning they combine or "fixate" all the ingredients together as one.

In most cases, at least one base note ingredient is recommended in a recipe. Combining multiple top, middle, and base notes will create an aroma with much more depth and body. There are no hard and fast rules though so have fun experimenting with each group to see what suits you.

You can also blend Water Element ingredients with ingredients of other properties if you like, such as with those that are cleansing or inspire love, or perhaps with a few that represent the current season, etc.

The possibilities are endless and filled with enjoyment. Have fun!

A "part" is any unit of measurement you wish to use, provided it's consistent throughout the entire recipe. We often use the conversion of 1 part = 1, 2, or 3 grams for small batches. If you prefer, you can use volume measurements with teaspoons, tablespoons and/or cups. Always measure after grinding & powdering.
