Top notes are the first aromas we smell. They're often lighter, sweeter and spicier and diffuse into the air very quickly. Middle notes (heart notes) diffuse into the air more slowly. They give body and fullness to a recipe. Base notes are the longest lasting scents and most "fixed" of all. Most Base note ingredients are also "fixatives" meaning they combine or "fixate" all the ingredients together as one.

In most cases, at least one base note ingredient is recommended in a recipe. Combining multiple top, middle and base notes will create an aroma with much more depth and body. There are no hard and fast rules though so have fun experimenting with each group to see what suits you.


You can also blend Sagittarius ingredients with ingredients of other properties, such as those that promote Awareness or Prosperity, or perhaps with a few that are enhance Protection, etc. The possibilities are endless and filled with fun... enjoy!

A "part" is any unit of measurement you wish to use, provided it's consistent throughout the entire recipe. We often use the conversion of 1 part = 1, 2 or 3 grams for small batches, and maybe 1 part = 5 to 10 grams for larger batches, etc. If you prefer, you can use powdered volume measurements with teaspoons, tablespoons and/or cups.

Once you've selected the recipe or ingredients you wish to use, you're ready to begin making your own Sagittarius incense. First gather the ingredients you'll be using then click begin to get started using our step by step guides.
