I discovered this brief but helpful 32-page book after I wrote the Incense and Aromatherapy article. It contains a lot of useful tips about making natural incense. Some of the info regarding essential oils isn't as thorough or as accurate as I would hope for, but those with a sound knowledge of essential oils should be able to still utilize many of the tips contained within this publication. I wish it was much more thorough, but at under $4 through Amazon.com (as of this writing), it's worth the price.
