As many of you will know, sometime ago one of our fab students suggested creating a Kitchen Witch incense. We decided it would be a great idea for a competition, and we got fantastic submissions, which made choosing extremely difficult!
However, one did stand out for us all, and as you also know from the announcement, the winning blend was the creation of Maria.
Here is the link to Sue’s blog about the submissions, listing all the entries - https://www.kitchenwitchhearth.net/post/kitchen-witch-incense-competition-by-sue-perryman
This is Maria’s recipe, followed by my list of the correspondences for the ingredients, there is also a YouTube link to this blog at the end.
