The Complete Book of Incense, Oils & Brews
"The Complete Book of Incense, Oils & Brews is, in effect, a magical cookbook. Like any cookbook, it teaches, allows plenty of latitude for experimentation and personalization, and gives a large number and wide variety of recipes. These are not the same old tired recipes printed time and again in a host of magical formularies. They are tried and true ones gleaned by Cunningham from a variety of sources over many active years of practice.
Included in this book is a very well written chapter on the basics of magic and, to my mind, and extremely valuable chapter on all aspects of substitution ... "What can I use if I can't find Juniper (for example)?" This alone is worth the price of the book. I thoroughly recommend it." -- Raymond Buckland, Practical Candleburning Rituals
"When it comes to using what Mother Nature has provided, magical practitioners can never learn enough. From Mother Earth's vast garden there is an herb or flower or combination of herbs which appeals to our sense of smell, stimulating the emotions and mind of the magician. The sweet aroma of smoldering incense, the alluring scent of the oils aid the individual in working the needed magic. Scott Cunningham has come through in providing enough variations of incenses and oils that there is definitely something for everyone." -- Ray T. Malbrough, Charms, Spells and Formulas
"Scott Cunningham's book is well researched, interesting, and presents a natural, Earth-oriented approach to magic that should make readers more aware of their connection to the Earth Mother and all of her children." -- Sun Bear, Founder of Bear Tribe
