2,988. Consecrating Incense

Hilchos Arachin Vacharamin 5:10

If someone consecrates his property without specifying details and it includes the incense that was given to the craftsmen as pay until the Temple would later buy it back (as discussed in Hilchos Shekalim 4:12), it is given to craftsmen as their pay just like the rest of the incense. This is also the procedure if one of the spices used in the incense offering is among the consecrated property.

Hilchos Arachin Vacharamin 5:11

If someone consecrates an unblemished animal for the altar and it gets blemished, disqualifying it, it is appraised and redeemed. Regarding this, Leviticus 27:11 says: "If it’s an unclean animal from which an offering may not be brought to Hashem, you shall stand the animal (for appraisal)...." In such a case, one brings an equivalent offering using the money from the original animal’s redemption.
