With the aroma of Patchouli (Mother Nature) this incense is from a small village in Rajasthan. They are made of dried plants, flowers and pure essential oils and once dried are hand rolled around a bamboo stick. These incense sticks are a type of incense, traditionally, most often burned before an Indian religious image, idol, Buddha statue, or shrine. In modern days, the burning of joss sticks can be used for any type of purpose, such as to enhance the smell of a room. Light the incense stick on top, blow out the flame and fit the stick in an incenst stick holder. Don’t bring the glowing top and the hot ash in contact with flammable things. Don’t let the sticks burn without supervision.
