Burning the Incense Balls
You will have to excuse the crummy quality of my photos; my camera was being quite uncooperative, but I think they’re kind of clear enough…
These are the incense balls discussed in my blog post Making Incense Pellets. They were finally cured enough to burn so burn one I did. The charcoal was being a little bit of a bitch mind you, wouldn’t light correctly but I got it eventually.

The smell was divine; honey really adds another dimension to the scent of the herbs but does not overpower it as the scent of the herbs came through nice and strong. I have to say I am now a lover of this type of incense, when my herbal stores are built up a little bit, I am definitely cranking out some incense pellets for my business!
