A classic example of the Himalayan art of rope incense where raw incense powder is twisted into ropes of handmade paper. I love the holy, delicate scent these provide!
Below is the description on the wrapper:
This is a Traditional Newari Incense called Dhupaya. It is made traditionally with many different precious aromatic Himalayan herbs. The finely powdered form of the herbs wrapped in the thin strip of Lokta paper and twined forming a stick called Dhupaya (Incense). The smoke issusing out of the burnt Vajra Sacred Aroma Incense is believed to attract the gods and hence it has been put to an extensive use specially in the religious fields both by Hindus and Buddhists. The spiritual aspirant burns the incense while meditation in order to hold the mind focused on the object of attention."
All natural with no wooden sticks, glues, or dyes. Easily burnt on a bed of sand or salt. (This pack comes with a completely useless (for this type of incense) holder. Please do not use it to burn this! I am not taking them out of the packages but want to let you know I would not use it since it would be messy + dangerous.) Handmade in Nepal according to a traditional Buddhist formula.
I find this scent incredibly soothing. The burn time is long enough to fill my space but short enough that I don't have to worry about having a whole hour to make sure it is out before I go about my business.
*You will receive ONE package of Vajra Sacred Aroma incense as shown above. Photograph of multiples + botanicals/crystals are for merchandising purposes only.
Please utilize smoke cleansing implements with great care! Look up best practices for safely burning, extinguishing, and storing.
