Leo Vinci in Incense: Its Ritual Significance, Use and Preparation states that the Egyptian formula for Kyphi was given in the writings of Plutarch and that it contained 16 ingredients. He gives three different formulas for this incense in his book. My own personal formula contains more than 16 ingredients but smells much better than the ones given by Vinci.

Here’s the recipe. Blend together the following ingredients:

  • Red sandalwood – 1 part
  • Frankincense – 1/2 part
  • Myrrh – 1/4 part
  • Galangal – 1 part
  • Juniper berries – 1/4 part
  • Dragon’s blood – 1/4 part
  • Calamus root – 1 part
  • Bay laurel – 1 part
  • Orris root – 1/4 part
  • Henna powder – 1/4 part
  • Cinnamon – 1/4 part
  • Balm of Gilead – 1/4 part
  • Styrax bark – 1/4 part

Add oils of amber, honey, acacia, orris, storax, lotus, and musk to personal preference.

Note: Many recipes for Kyphi call for the use of raisins, honey, and wine. These “wet” ingredients enable you to make the incense into a paste that is then formed into balls and left to dry before burning.

From: D J Conway’s Magick of the Gods and Goddesses

The acacia tree has been associated with the sacred since the proverbial time immemorial, from the myth of Osiris to the Ark of the Covenant. Burn it as incense to stimulate and enhance psychic ability as well as to provide contact with the sacred.

  • Basic Acacia Incense:
    Burn dried powered acacia and allow the fragrance to permeate the area.
  • Osiris Incense:
    Blend Acacia, frankincense, cypress, and cedarwood and burn wafting the fragrance as desired.
  • Sacred Wood Incense:
    Blend dried powdered acacia, sandalwood, and frankincense. Burn the powder to enhance and develop psychic power and vision.
