From the Author
I am very excited to see the release of this greatly revised and expanded 2nd Edition of Incense: Crafting & Use!!  It has essentially doubled in size from the first edition.  More recipes, more ingredients, more binders, and lots of other goodies are waiting for you!  In the 11 years since the first edition was written I have learned so much that I was thrilled when Llewellyn agreed to publish the updated version.  Working on the text again after a decade was a real treat.  Terminology has been updated and new techniques added.  The sections on wood binders and incense pellets have been significantly expanded to meet the growing desire of incense makers to use mako, dar, lama, and other wood binders.  I've even included a couple of brand new ones!

I hope you enjoy this expanded edition of Incense as much as I enjoyed updating it.
Bright blessings,
Carl Neal
