A combination of the oils of almond, petit grain and ylang ylang create an inviting and sweet aroma. Originally from western Asia, the almond tree now grows wild in southern Europe and much of America. The most valued almonds come from Spain. The mild and sweet fragrance of the almond is a reason for its popularity. It has the unique ability to neutralize strong offending odors and is often used as a room freshner for that reason.
This 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 the 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.
