One of the secrets of real magic is that it is controlled by the mind. The more things in your ritual to help your mind associate with your goal, the more powerful your ritual may be. Colored candles, scented oils, natural incenses, and more all add to the impact of the magic you wish to do.
But how do you know which incense to burn? Is it possible to add scented oils toge

I seldom review books of this sort, but in this case, I'm compelled to give credit where it's due.
Hocus-pocus aside, many of these concoctions are actually quite pleasantly scented. A sufficiently entrepreneurial individual could use the information to supplement his/her income via cottage industry; hawking "Organic AirWick," (if you will), at craft shows, love-ins, and outpatient rehab clinics.

("Bean, radish, and sprout salad *again*? Aww, jeez! Guess we'd better burn a few of these -- and ope

More than just Incense, Oils, & Brews, this book gives the beginner a great foray into the art of aromatherapy, soaps, and sachets. This book is a quick read with more than enough recipes to blend incense, oil, and much more with purpose and intent. Although very informative, ultimately this will wind up on your shelf as a handy reference guide.

An excellent resource. But I've found that that is all that this book is: a quick reference. While I enjoy having that at hand I would have rather seen Cunningham dive a bit deeper into the meaning, symbolism, and history of some of the incense/oil combination he provides.

Cunningham gave me the start I needed to begin to understand how to channel energy with herbs and scent. This book is a primer without being too elementary. I highly recommend this book to those whose craft is amplified through scent.

The complete book of Incense, Oils, & Brews is a wonderful guide to working with these practices. Like many of his other texts the author Scott Cunningham created a very useful and effective resource for working many different types of magical spells and rituals. This text works great in companion with his Aromatherapy book and his two Herbal Magic books-Herbal Magic and his Magical Herbal encyclopedia or it can be used effectively on its own as its own resource. The text provides a comprehe ...more

Finally purchased this book today, and I'm so glad I did.
An invaluable reference book for working with herbs to mix incense, potions and ritual baths.
Will surely be a very well used addition to my occult bookshelf.

He gives get recipes in this book about oils and incense. I like how Scott writes as a casual guy and straight forward with you. He does not try to flower or impress you. Just a friend who is sharing his technique.

This was a quick read, since its mostly recipes.

Excellent balance of how to and ingredients. I love that substitutions are listed for the hard to find/toxic herbs.

I will definitely be buying this book, and making my own soaps and incenses.

This text paired with "Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs" has everything to get you started on a path of natural magic (Well, besides the herbs). It is filled with numerous recipes ranging from love tinctures, astral projection incenses, dream teas, protection sachets and everything in between. While there is a wealth of information to be found in the recipes, the most use one will get from this book is from the tables of substitutions and correspondences at the end of the book.

This book is such a great resource. It's got so many recipes for not only incense, oils and brews but also things like bath products, tinctures, inks, powders and more. It does a great job of explaining the basics of pagan herbalism. The only thing I don't like about it is some of the recipes contain toxic herbs like hemlock, belladonna, mistletoe, etc. in an incense or other blend which can be dangerous. To his credit he does put asterisks (*) next to the toxic herbs but I still feel those reci ...more

The copy of this book in our house actually belongs to my partner, Maple.... he is the incense maker of the house. This book have proven to be the wonderful guide and set of instructions for us!

Maple now makes all the incense we use in circle and to date has made a sabbat blend, prosperity blend, house cleansing blend, and more!


Cunningham.......... a timeless hero!

This is my absolute favorite witchy ingredient reference book. When I do spellwork, I pick and choose between many different sources, but I always go to Cunningham's first. This book provides recipes for oils, incense, potions, and so much more, along with appendices full of correspondences and information. This is a GREAT resource.

As a practical guide for DIY incense and magical herbalism, this book does the job. I am not Wiccan, so much of the info here is a little whimsical for me, but the how-to stuff is great. This is definitely inspiring me to create my own burnables and incense as well as to look into the symbolic and spiritual qualities of herbs, rather than just their medicinal qualities
Pagan Hare
The reason for the long reading period is, well, you don't stop reading this kind if book. it's a reference book. Even though I have put an end date I'll be picking this book when ever time I need information on how to create a particular incense, brew etc. it's a brilliant book and like all of Scott's books, is one I'd highly recommend to anyone!

I got to admit I have a soft spot in my heart for this book. Some of the recipes are pretty good and the tables help out in whipping up something that you need if you can't find it already laid out in the book.

Great resource for herbal recipes and correspondences. A few downsides were his repetitiveness around not using synthetics and his slight Wiccan superiority complex. Still a must have for those interested in simple herbal magic.

Excellent resource for anyone wanting to explore the world of making and working with incense, essential oils, tinctures and so forth. Great for the advanced and beginner. As always, I love Scott Cunningham's work!

This includes an explanation of magic, what oils, incense and brews are used for, followed by recipes divided into each category. All are used in Wiccan magic to heal, as a cure for depression and many other magic portions. Good for the followers of the Wican Religion.

I love the organization of a Scott Cunningham book. The information is endless and a good base to have for your own workings to expand. Use this book in combination with the Encyclopedia of Magickal Herbs and the Encyclopedia of Crystals and Metals for any spell work. Very satisfying.

The complete Incense, etc. is a more recent read (4 years ago). It offers a thorough guide to making your life better through aromatherapy, gifts of perfume oils, and home remedies alluded to the in Cunningham's herb encyclopedia.
