Traditional Incense Powders Incense in it’s traditional form. This selection of incense powders are beautifully packaged in convenient to use glass jars. Each jar of incense powder contain approximately 20 grams of incense. These unique incense powder can be used without charcoal, to use simply pinch a teaspoon amount of powder into a flat “wall” and light the top surface. Let it burn 15-20 seconds then blow out the flame and let it smoulder and release the aromatic fragrance.... (Use a ceramic or glass burner, even a ceramic tile or plate will work). We make our incense from scratch from raw ingredients We simply make our incenses in a different way. We firstly select the finest raw ingredients that would include spices, herbs, resins, fragrant woods, flower petals to name a few. These ingredients are then ground into a powder form and mixed with honey and aromatic oils to make a dough like mixture. This pliable dough is then roll onto a plain bamboo stick and coated with aromatic wood powder so that the wet sticks do not stick to each other. This is a traditional method which dates back hundreds of years and we are keeping that tradition alive. DIPPED SCENTED CHEMICAL INCENSES (98% of incenses are made this way – NOT OURS) This second type of incense was developed as the short-cut method making incenses. The stick actually begins with an unscented stick which is made from sawdust and or charcoal powder mixed with a binding agent and formed onto to a bamboo stick (these sticks were originally made to light fire crackers). Usually these raw incenses come from factories in China and Vietnam that produce these sticks by the ton. The next step is to mix the fragrance oil with a diluting chemical. This is the main problem with this type of poor quality stick. In order to distribute the costly ingredient that is fragrance oil evenly over thousand of sticks, you have to find a cheap way to increase the volume of your fragrance oil in order to coat the unscented stick. The solution that most incense makers use is a diluting chemical such as diethyl phthalate (DEP) or dipropylene glycol (DPG) at about 90%, mixed with about 10% fragrance oil to increase the volume of the fragrance oil. Now the unscented is literally dipped in this chemical to produce a scented incense stick. The problem of this type of stick is that you are burning about 70% chemical oil with a small amount of fragrance. This chemical DEP or DGP is toxic and was NEVER DESIGNED TO BE BURNED thus gives the user headaches and makes eyes water. This is how most incenses are made. Many European countries have even BANNED these chemical incenses.
