For thousands of years, people have used fragrant flowers, plants, and herbs as incense. Using smoke to send prayers out to the gods is one of the oldest known forms of ceremony. From the censers of the Catholic church to the Pagan bonfire rituals incense is a powerful way to let your intent be known. You can make your own quite easily using a blend of herbs, flowers, wood bark, resins and berries. Most of these are items you can grow yourself, find in the woods or purchase inexpensively. Why make your own? You can buy commercially produced incense sticks and cones just about anywhere and they're not that expensive. However, they're made with synthetic ingredients and therefore have little to no magical value. While they're nice to burn and certainly smell lovely, they serve little purpose in a ritual setting.
