This specially prepared, traditional monastic incense is made using amber, musk and over 33 other herbs to an ancient recipe from Tibet. This incense produces a complex but delightful fragrance with a honeylike sweetness that is balanced beautifully by the earthy tones of musk.
Tibetan incense is made by crushing and mixing pure ingredients into a paste before rolling them into long sticks (without a wood or bamboo core) which are then cut to the desired length. This method of preparation means that the sticks are naturally thicker and nothing is wasted when they are burnt. There is very little or no use of essential oils to flavour them so when they are thoroughly dried they will last for many years with little degradation in quality.
Because Tibetan incenses are thicker than Indian style stick incense, please make sure you have a suitable holder. Alternatively a ceramic bowl filled with sand is more than suitable.
