Hey everybody! I was wondering if anyone could give me some information on different types of incense, why they're different, what the different types are called, etc.
Thanks :) at my parish we don't use it except for Easter Vigil Mass, and I think it's important to learn more about it if God is taking me where I think He is:)
We use it every Sunday and Holy Day, usually a brand called Gloria F8. It costs about 25 USD a pound. You can get 4 oz samplers of Gloria Incense.
F8 - Our most popular blend! F8 consists of natural, imported resins, pea-sized for a slow burn and lasting aroma. A lovely rose-lavender scent that is light in character is the signature of this blend.
P Blend - This is a full bodied resin powder formulation that provides quick effect with excellent quality. A soft, light sandalwood aroma is the result.
PR3 - A generous blend of natural balsamic resins and imported natural aromatic oils combine to create a wonderful fresh undertone of evergreen.
Both Catholic and Orthodox suppliers sell it.
We also have some others in different scents such as Mt. Athos Incense.
