  1. incense

    I am currently burning a benzoin gum combined with cedar resin that I bought and mixed. These and other wonderful incense resins are available at a copperative that sets up once each month here in Brazil where I am teaching. I find that of the resins available, this benzoin and the cedar are the highest quality. I also ALWAYS buy Palo Santo wood. It comes in nice broken pieces that smell good without burning them- much like the electric ozone smell just before a rain. Then, when the Palo Santo wood ...

  2. They're everywhere

    I have a psychiatrist. I've had other pyschiatrists--they've all tried their damnest, even the one who flipped the doctor/patient relationship mid-session.

  3. Resource

    Hello,

    I am really interested in using aroma chemicals in candles. Iíve been able to determine safety levels for perfumes and other skin products, but I am having a hard time determine the safety level and maximum quantity allowed for certain ingredients. If anyone can direct me to a great resource, I would greatly appreciate it.
  4. Please Help

    Hello,

    I am looking for this candle fragrance oil I am smelling everywhere. Smells like Santal 33, Maison Louis Marie #4 and I smell it in high end and drugstore candles. Itís usually described as sandalwood or driftwood. Itís a paper, dry woodsy scent.

    I currently make candles and can usually detect the same oakmoss and amber or teakwood every brand is using, but canít find this one ingredient that appears to be available to many.
