I think advanced incense making and a list of the most commonly used ingredients should go into separate articles or this will become really bloated.

Elseware 01:55, 19 May 2005 (BST): We currently have no info at all on incense so I'd go with the plan you want. You can create pages of any name you like so feel free to create pages for herbs, pages for techniques etc. You can also add a standard menu to each page, eg. like Tarot. Comment on this page if you need more help figuring how to do that.

I am nameless who has forgotten her password and therefor adopted a name LOL. I have changed my mind about that article: I will limit this one to modern uses, and eventually write another one about the history of incense. This is getting really long. Putting the history in too would make it really bloated i think. It's sad i'm the only one writing about this here. I hope others will throw in their experiences after a while.
