Absolutely the best dragons blood on the open market. Received ahead of schedule. The packaging and artwork was amazing and talented. I look forward to continuing a business relationship and future purchases. If you are looking for the best dragons blood this is your source right here. look no further. Also you will not find a better priced deal for it anywhere else. Good, caring, compassionate, creative, artistic, and passionate sellers. It was a pleasure doing business with them.

About

Our Story

Ink 'n Scents is a traveling vendor from the Midwest. We began our little shop in 2011, selling some of our work at a local fair in St. Louis. We've both always enjoyed creating things, and this seemed like a fun way to share our work with more people.

We offer coloring books, unique resin incense, whimsical animal illustrations, paper goods, and more. Created by husband & wife team Matthew Gindling & Melissa (Rohr) Gindling, we currently sell our work at various fairs and markets in the Midwest area.
