Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa Original Incense Cones - superior quality incense from the Shrinivas Sugandhalaya factory, Bangalore.
Box of 12 cones plus holder.
Each cone burns for around 25-30 mins.
The Nag Champa original perfume was first manufactured in the Hindu and Buddhist monasteries of India and Nepal. It is traditionally made from a sandalwood base, to which are added a variety of flower oils including that from the flower of the Champac tree. Each monastery has its own secret formula which is revealed to no-one outside the order! The sacred tree belongs to the magnolia family, and grows to about 30m in height. Its flower is yellow and star-shaped, and as well as being the source of the perfume, also gives a yellow dye. Frequently planted in temple grounds, the wood is used for making sacred images, drums, etc.
Nag Champa Original incense has a unique floral fragrance with musky overtones and has been appreciated for decades as an exceptional incense perfect for deep and calming meditation and for creating your own sacred space.
Incense cones are popular because of their compact size. They are easy and safe to use, and unlike incense sticks the ash does not drop off. Instead, as an incense cone burns down, the ash stays in the shape of the cone.
Light the tip of the cone and once the flame takes hold blow it out. Place the cone on an suitable dish, plate or custom made cone holder, keeping it well clear of flammable materials. Depending on the size of the cone, the resulting aromatic smoke should rise and fragrance the surroundings for 20 minutes or more.
