Incense Ingredients for Autumn

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 Autumn ingredients with ingredients of other properties if you like, such as those that are known to be sensuous or purifying.

The possibilities are endless and filled with fun… enjoy!

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.
