    Loose Incense Recipe with Frankincense and Myrrh

    by Andrea Butje on March 18, 2019

    If you’ve never burned loose resin incense, it’s very easy.

    There’s something soothing about it too—just the sight of the incense smoke rising from the natural loose incense, perhaps out of a beautiful incense burner, can help you feel connected to the moment.
