I’m learning how to make cone incense!  It’s honestly not going very well.  The two on the right were my first attempt, using a recipe I found online.  They did not light, so I bought a book and found a recipe that probably will light, considering it includes a healthy amount of saltpeter.  That’s the two on the left.  They’re little more than cone-shaped blobs, but I’m really just interested in their ability to burn.  And if they smell like the myrrh I made them with, all the better.
