You can now order the incense making kit at Japan Incense. For about the same(or slightly better) price as I got mine for in Japan! This is a great deal and a good way to discover a wonderful and smokeless(assuming you do not turn the heater up too high) incense form. Plus it is fun, which is a big plus 🙂 It has about eighteen ingredients, each double bagged. They compose what are the basic core materials for kneaded incense. Of course you could also use this for cones or incense trails. You could also restock at least some of the materials at a Chinese Traditional Medicine shop and Kotaro also mentioned that he “thinks” he can get additional replacement materials from Tennendo itself. Apparently Tennendo is one of the better ingredients suppliers in japan and many other incense companies use them. Which makes sense when you sample their incense, which all seem to use very good materials.You could also add materials from any other countries incense tradition into the mix, labdanum comes to mind.
I made my second set of incense balls last night and am now letting them cure for a couple of weeks. Let you all know the results. -Ross
