Frankincense Incense by AUROSHIKHA
The incense is made of a paste consisting of the powders of dried flower petals, sweet smelling herbs and woods, spices, resins, some charcoal which is an excellent burning material and perfumes based on Natural Essential Oils. All these ingredients are mixed with water to form a paste. The paste is then rolled by hand around bamboo sticks and left to dry. After drying the rolled sticks are selected, trimmed and perfumed.
In case of "Masala" varieties such as Sandalwood and Frankincense the perfumes and essential oils are mixed in the paste itself and no further perfuming is needed.
