Incense At Home-Easy Cinnamon Incense Recipe

This recipe is super simple; requiring only two ingredients – cinnamon and water!


Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), most of which is grown in Sri Lanka, is aligned with the sun and the fire element, and is thought to attract prosperity and love/sex. It is also believed to promote health, strength and libido and is recognized as a herb that invokes protection. Follow the steps below to make your own cinnamon incense cones! 

  • Put your ground cinnamon powder (pre-ground or grind your own in a pestle and mortar) into a bowl or mortar.
  • Add water slowly, drop by drop. Mix with a spoon or pestle until it reaches ‘play dough’ consistency. You might like to envision your hopes or intentions  while you stir the mixture.
  • Now roll the mixture into a ball in your hand before shaping into little cones.
  • Leave to dry for at least 24 hours before lighting. Enjoy the sweet, soothing, woody aroma!
