Andrew at Equinox Aromatics has managed to source and bring into the US real Halmaddi. You can check it out at the link above, It is a brown grey rather sticky substance that needs to be stored in water, so working with it will be “interesting”. You can expect to see incenses using it coming out fairly soon. At least in my case, and I am pretty sure in a number of others, they will be built around natural ingredients. The only problem with this is the cost factor of of the essential oils and absolutes now days 🙂
OK, back to the laboratory..oh no, the musk ox is loose again!
