These amazing resin incense sticks contain 100% pure, natural ingredients, namely pure ground Frankincense resin (Boswellia thurifera) and Myrrh resin (Balsamodenron myrrha), pressed into traditional stick form. The sticks are a particularly long, thick size, and so will burn for longer than thinner commercial sticks. Being made with pure resins, their scent is lush and rich. The fragrance creates an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, and is perfect for meditation.
Most people would be 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. These inferior incense sticks also use synthetic perfumes and fragrances, believed to produce harmful CO2 when burnt. Not many manufacturers use high quality natural materials such as is used in the types of incense we stock.
