-- Most incense is made, we’re sorry to say, in an ultra commercial fashion. Machines dip wooden sticks into a synthetic mix of charcoal, which burns fast and evenly. It’s then dipped into a range of chemical fragrances, many of which bear little or no resemblance to anything of plant origin.
How we do things here at http://www.dhuni.co.uk/
incense/ is a little different. We’ve gone back to the way things were done in the beginning, when skilled artisans harvested flowers, barks and resins from the forest themselves, ground them by hand in vast pestles and mortars, then blended them to recipes designed to enhance their health and spiritual practice. Sounds intense… it is!
dhuni handmade incense takes a lot of time, that’s why it’s a bit more expensive. But more importantly, it’s made with a huge amount of care, consideration and love. Our small team at Bangalore are trained by a master. They roll incense with only natural herbs, resins and spices, using no chemicals of any kind, then dry them in the sun.
Because they’re rolled by hand, the incense all looks fractionally different. That’s your first clue that you’re getting a true artisan product. It’s soft, a little sticky, and burns slowly and evenly – unlike mass produced incense which burns at lightning speed. Each stick lasts a looooong time. The smoke is incredibly fragrant, without chemicals of any kind, and without the use of ecologically unsound sandalwood. http://www.dhuni.co.uk/aromatic-incense/
