Todd Oldham on His Absolute Favorite Incense Sticks

Everything I’ve tried from Fred Soll’s line of incense sticks has been fantastic. The ingredients are pure and the subtle combinations are hypnotic. My favorite scents are White Sage & Dragon’s Blood (so intoxicating and refreshing), Honey Amber (as rich as it sounds), Magical Copal (it completely refreshes a room), and the Moonight Jasmine, which smells like it’s still on the vine. In fact, I’d say it’s actually impossible to make a bad choice from anything Fred Soll offers. Even today, it’s all handmade by the Soll family in Albuquerque, New Mexico — the same way it’s been for years.

I prefer burning incense in bowls filled with sand. These affordable glass versions are so easy and perfect with some colorful craft sand.
