    Hello,

    I'm new to this wonderful community. I have browsed through the treads but have not found an answer so I apologize in advance if the question has already been adressed somewhere?

    I am absolutely passionate about oud and incense in general and always wondered how to make incense at home from raw oud/sandalwood and different arabic/french aromas (i.e. which aromas to use, mix ratios,...).

    Could you please help?

    Thank you

    Welcome!
    Grind your ingredients, add binder, add water,
    form a dough, then extrude and allow to dry.

    It seems simple, and essentially is,
    but your choice of ingredients,
    and the effect you are after,
    will determine your binder/binders,
    then getting proportions right matters,
    there are no set proportions,
    so you have to learn which ones will suit your needs the best.

    I use a simple syringe to extrude, but there are other options out there.

    I suggest that you do a little research via Google, make a few test batches, take notes, and enjoy.
