* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

So I was wondering what types of incense offerings people here like to use.

I do not have a particular kind I use as long as I think it has a nice scent.  I do not have a lot of money either.  Usually I have used incense sticks, but in my rituals there are two places to offer incense and it can be a hassle because I do not need it to be burning the entire time in between.

I just need to waft a little incense and that is it.  With the sticks I either have to light it and then put it right out, and it can be sort of messy with the ashes and distracting, or let it burn, and then I might have to use two sticks to make both the offerings.

I have thought about purchasing one of those incense burners used in the church to swing over my altar or table, but I haven't decided yet.  I do not have any experience with it.

 
I just use Dragons Blood as I love the scent. But it's very rare I use incense these days.

I would put it on my altar and let it burn to the end. :)

In the past, I've used dried juniper and dried sage. I don't use incense sticks or cones at this point. I have a hard time finding sticks and cones that I like the scent of (although I do like how anything you buy in a metaphysical shop/witchy shop tends to smell like incense; it makes it smell all magical).

I just light a charcoal round in a bowl with sand in the bottom--I use sand from a local beach and a soapstone bowl I bought on Etsy--sprinkle on some herb, and let it go (although you do need to probably open a window and keep an eye on it, and the charcoal stays really hot for a long time).

If you just needed a bit of incense at the beginning, this could work; just don't put a ton of incense on the charcoal.

I tend to make my own incense. If I use the sticks it's just for a nice smell around the place.

If I use charcoal discs on sand in either a small iron cauldron on a stand or a small soapstone bowl. I light them using the gas flame on the stove and they're good to go pretty quickly.

Otherwise I use my home made cone incense - that's more for special occasions as it's a bit of a faff to make although easy to use
