AQ PREMIUM HANDMADE MASALA INCENSE
Exclusive to Aroma Queen, this stunning range of incense has been created with a focus on the very best in quality. Our sticks are handmade* for us featuring natural ingredients that you can actually see, and made using the traditional 'masala' method which involves blending naturally aromatic botanicals, woods, resins and spices into a paste and rolling it around an inner bamboo stick.
* NOTE RE BENZOIN STICKS: The Benzoin sticks in this range are machine extruded rather than hand-rolled, featuring natural Benzoin resins and extracts. They are also a very thick Jumbo size and so come in a pack of eight sticks, compared to our other scents that each contain ten sticks.
WHAT MAKES OUR AQ PREMIUM HANDMADE MASALA RANGE A STEP ABOVE THE REST?
Masala sticks Masala incenses are manufactured by mixing multiple dry scented ingredients into dough and then rolling the dough onto a core stick of bamboo. such as those in our AQ PREMIUM HANDMADE range are made by combining naturally scented ground herbs, resins, spices and botanicals into a paste, which is carefully hand-rolled around a bamboo stick and allowed to dry (see note above re Benzoin). This method gives a much purer, natural scent than you'll find with cheaper sticks that are made by 'dipping' absorbent sawdust-coated sticks into synthetic fragrances and other chemicals - you'll notice the difference in quality and scent the moment you open the pack.
Most people are surprised to learn of the inferior materials often used in cheap modern incense - ingredients such as coal powder, washing soda ash, grease and used motor oils, rubber solutions and melted tyres, and even albumen powder derived from the blood of slaughtered animals and used as a binding agent. Inferior incense sticks that use synthetic perfumes and fragrances are also believed to produce harmful CO2 when burnt. Not many manufacturers use such high quality natural materials as you'll find in our AQ PREMIUM HANDMADE range: our incense makers have set themselves the challenge to create the highest quality incense in the world.
