Gums and Resins


Gums and Resins make excellent "natural" incenses. Though some gums and resins can be expensive, they really are worth the cost. You only use a little of each resin or gum, so a little goes a long way. Gums and resins come from trees and are hard to mix with other mixtures. Gums and resins are hard to crush and blend because of their sticky natures.
