King David’s Temptation


Taken from Susanne Fischer-Rizzi’s The Complete Incense Book, here is an ancient recipe for making your own incense to tempt and enthrall the object of your affection just for Valentine’s Day.  It made King David of Israel irresistible and may do the same for you!  According to Fischer-Rizzi, King David used to suspend his clothing in the smoke and allow the fragrance to fill a room.  The fragrance is warm and sensual.

KING DAVID’S TEMPTATION

4 parts Myrrh resin (see pic below) &  1/2 part Agar wood
1 part Cinnamon Bark (powder)
1 part Sandalwood (powder)

Crush the agar wood, then the myrrh with a mortar and pestle.  Add the Sandalwood and the cinnamon.  Place a pinch at a time on hot charcoal.  Enjoy.
