    Also some vendors here sell bakhoor and they are masters of the art. It’s always a good idea to have a variety for benchmarking your own efforts.

    me what makes me a bit scary is to add oil or attars in the mix there are surely things it is better not to burn that could be toxic or I do not know .. so if anyone has any oil info that can add to the mix without problems, he is welcome!

    What foundation would like to build your bakhoor on?

    Pure natural oils such as oudh, sandalwood, rose etc can be added to bakhoor in order to reach the desired scent profile, since they are natural from a hazard perspective heating them in a bakhoor is no different than heating the raw material.

    thank you for the information, yes I understand .. but for example to heat water and add sugar and mix with wood and oils, I would like to know if at this level there is nothing serious a breathe her by burning her ..

    First it is best you begin with loose bakhoor. That is bakhoor that does not use a binder. When they add sugar and water and reduce it , this is so that the ingredients all combine together, and solidify. There are many different type of binding techniques. You can also use active ingredients such as natural resins as binders.

    For example if you craft a bakhoor and you add frankincense and warm up the mixture so that the frankincense becomes soft, then knead the mixture, this itself will cause the ingredients to combine and hold together.

    However as I mentioned earlier, first focus should be on getting the desired scent by way of mixing the ingredients, than secondly you can work on the aesthetics of how you present the final product, loose, in balls, cubes, sticks etc.

    @Rai Munir yes they are that much sheen because that picture was taken when they were freshly rolled.

    The ingredients for this is as follows:
    Agarwood wood powder (post distilled)
    Sandalwood powder(pre-distilled)
    Powder sugar
    Rose Abs
    Jasmine Abs
    Citrus blend (essential oils).

    This blend came out ok...but the agarwood powder has to be pre-distilled
    The next time I try my hand at this InshAllah.

    Sir, the day you heat any incense ball, please share the shades of fragrance. At the moment, I am of the view that citrus blend generally gets rancid. This is just a hunch, not an empirical experience. May it not happen.

    I like the idea of using rose absolute. Which one? I use rose petals dried in the shade.

    This is quite new thing for me. Well, do you mean the oil had already been distilled, and then the powder in the still is reused in this incense?

    Jazakumu-Allah, dearest Fahad.

    I was reading your post about Musk. Alas my mobile is not with me. Otherwise, I would have shared what I learnt in the last four years. But I am extremely happy to see Mysuru Santal and Musk in the pic you posted.

    Tomorrow, insha-Allah I will.
