The magic fragrance of this natural incense is based on old customs, traditions and the belief that every plant or aroma has its own magical purpose. It is like a witch recipe, where each plant and its aroma have a very important aromatherapic and magic function.
Juniper: since ancient times juniper has been used to protect from and ward off evil spirits. The energy of the burning plant helps to develop the personality’s consistence and perseverance, the ability to distinguish lies and fight them easily. It protects the aura form aggression, helps to quickly find a proper way from any difficult situation. It also helps to avoid self-projected destructive irritation, gain the deserved authority, and develops such qualities as nobleness, grace, etc.
Nag Champa: this authentic incense is produced from the blossoms of a holy tree. In India it is called “nagakesara”, “nag champa” or the tree of “cobra’s saffron”. In Ayurvedic medicine extracts from this plant’s blossoms, seeds, leaves and bark have been used since ancient times. Nagakesara or nag champa trees grow in many locations from southern Himalaya slopes to Sri Lanka and Andaman Islands. Mesua or the ironwood is an average-sized tree with exceptionally hard wood and fragrant blossoms. The most subtle incense is made from the blossoms of the nag champa tree, which symbolize sexuality, fertility, passion and love.
Agarwood: used in incense and perfume since ancient times, mentioned in numerous ancient written sources – Sanskrit Vedas, the Old Testament, and Islamic scriptures. Aquilaria trees are also called god-trees. Agarwood was considered to be so powerful that it could cleanse the soul and banish evil spirits. Traditional Chinese medicine views agarwood as a substance for releasing spasms and other stagnant energy types (digestive disorders, bloating, asthma), and also as having warming, balancing, transforming and mind-clearing properties.

When we create our natural incense we do not use charcoal, unnatural glue, fragrance oils or other additional materials (eg wooden sticks). Our incense is made exclusively from natural plants, which are reinforced with a special natural binder made from guar gum.
Our incense has no wooden stick, so we recommend to fill a small jar with a non-combustible material (such as salt or sand) that you can put in the incense stick, and when it burns, you will easily clean your incense holder you made by yourself.
Package contains 5 sticks. Each stick burns approx. 30 – 40 minutes. The burning duration might differ depending on temperature, humidity and changes in the atmosphere. For a medium room, we recommend that you burn one-third part of one stick.
