The practice of burning incense has always had a spiritual significance.
The scent of incense is meant to calm the spirit, and to prepare a space for meditation or prayer. Aromatic ingredients from woods and resins have always been the most precious and valuable ingredients to use in incense. It is not surprising that sandalwood, oud, benzoin, frankincense and myrrh have long been used as highly prized incense ingredients.
Nowadays incense has become very popular, and is regularly used to fragrance the home; however, it is highly unlikely you will find any of these precious sacred aromatic ingredients in most of the commercial incense available today. If anything, all the artificial fragrances and fillers used in these incense commonly cause respiratory irritations and trigger allergies. I was so excited to find someone that took making incense seriously, and respected the traditions behind incense.
I believe this sandalwood incense is the purest incense in the world, made with finely milled Santalum album and Santalum spicatum - sustainably sourced here in Australia, and compounded with the gum of the Litsea glutinosa tree. This is how incense was traditionally made: with no added fragrances or fillers.
Please enjoy the subtle woody aroma of sandalwood when you light up our sandalwood natural incense. The scent will delight or senses and transport you to a quiet healing tranquil space.
