    Powdery, nice.

    Clean, powdery, white-musk note even unheated. Must be used sparingly in combustible mixtures, and the temperature must be kept low to retain that powdery character as higher temperatures can bring out toasty, umami notes.

    These were seeds...small but perfect for smudging with charcoal and they burn well. My favorite is patchouli but I also love musky scents so I usually mix with the patchouli leaves. Another calming effect and lovely scent.
