Sacred Smoke

Craft Your Own Incense Blend

December 10, 2023 1:00 pm

Join us as we craft hand-rolled incense sticks using a blend of natural, fragrant resins and learn more about this ancient practice, which can enhance your rituals. Participants will discover the history and cultural use of incense from around the world, and honor the sacred plants that provide these gifts. You will also learn about the healing and spiritual properties of each resin, and then hand roll a bundle of five custom incense blends to take home.

Non-member fee of $50 includes general admission to the Garden, and all materials and instructions for creating a bundle of incense sticks to take home or gift. Garden members receive a $10 discount.​

Houston Botanic Garden offers free parking for most events, which are often held in climate-controlled environments, rain or shine. If you have specific questions, please email​
