Rope Incense GIFT PACK (Five Packs, Optional Burner Box)
OPTIONAL MULTIPURPOSE BURNER BOX
Choose either the mixed pack of rope incense (5 packs), or add a multipurpose timber burner box to the pack by choosing PLUS BURNER from the drop-down OPTIONS menu near the top of the page, before adding it to your cart. If you do not make a choice, the default set is for the incense packs only.
Rope Incense is one of the most unique incense types you're likely to come across, handmade in Nepal using traditional methods: dried herbs and other naturally scented botanicals are finely powdered and wrapped in a thin strip of hand-prepared Nepali lokta paper, which is then braided to form a rope-like dhoop stick, ready to burn.
This gift pack includes five packs of beautiful rope incense: Nag Champa, Sandalwood, Rose, Lemongrass and Patchouli. Approximately 45 handmade rope sticks inside each pack, with the sticks sized at approx 3.5" (8-9cm). Handmade in Nepal.
You can also choose to add an OPTIONAL MULTIPURPOSE BURNER BOX, which is suitable for burning rope incense, Japanese sticks, standard Indian sticks and cones - to add the burner box to the set, just choose the PLUS BURNER option from the DROP-DOWN OPTIONS LIST near the top of the page, before adding it to your cart.
To burn Rope Incense, just light the intertwined ends and once it's alight, blow out the flame to allow the stick to smoulder as you would a standard incense stick. Rest the lit rope stick in a heatproof dish of sand or ash, in a suitable censer, or along the horizontal metal slats of a purpose-made Burner Box (available as an added option with this pack). Each stick will burn up to 30 - 40 minutes depending on the breeze and burning conditions.
