This is the important Nag Champa brand incense, complete with the trademark holographic seal of authenticity. Discover the Nag Champa Incense fragrance created by Shrinivas Sugandhalaya, India. it's been best-known since the dawn of man that when natural substances like flowers, bark, wood, roots, seeds, and herbs are burned, they emit an expensive sort of completely different and often very lovely fragrances. Over the course of time, a scientific search of nature was carried out and bountiful aromatic treasures were found hidden inside the delicate petals of a bush blossom, a small ambrette seed, a resinous driblet of sap from the Spicewood tree and numberless others of nature's unsuspected hiding places. the use of incense was common to several ancient cultures - typically as a section of spiritual worship or as a luxury of the made. often it consisted of very little quite the sweet-scented sap of a selected tree that was burned over coals - like the frankincense and myrrh of Biblical renown. In ancient India this science of scents matured into a sacred art. several thousands of years past, Vedic rishis discovered every fragrance -- like each color and sound -- possesses a selected quality of its own with influence to induce a rising state of consciousness. Burning incense became a means to make a peaceful atmosphere, to stop sickness, as a support for happy and harmonious living, and as an aid to meditation and therefore the quest for religious enlightenment. The art of the rishis concerned the careful combination and delicate mixing of the many aromatic substances to supply lovely and rising fragrances. The technique used was referred to as the "masala" methodology - that means mixture. a spread of scented flowers, herbs, leaves, essential oils, resins, and wood powders was intermingled with water to create a dough. Tree rosin with adhesive properties was a side as a binding agent. Then the dough was gently rolled onto a skinny sliver of bamboo and allowed to dry within the shade. the important secret to the present technique lay within the "spices" that were side to bring out the rich richness of every scent. Orris root was side to impart sweetness. Saffron, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, sage, briar and thyme provided a fascinating sort of accents. Ambrette seeds gave a musk-like scent, and so on. Wood powders fashioned the bottom and bulk of the dough. For deep made fragrances like musk and amber, the precious wood powder was side. For delicate floral fragrances like bush and lotus, burn coconut husk was used, as a result of it burns virtually with none scent of its own. to those powders were side the distilled essence of rose, jasmine, champaca, or lotus blossoms. The adhesive extract of assorted tree gums like benzoin, labdanum or gum were side as natural fixatives to preserve the scent. Like most ancient traditions, this sacred art gradually faded with the approaching of our trendy age of science, secularism, and materialism. Incense became another product to be factory-made as cheaply as doable and marketed as an ad artifact, void of inner feeling or higher worth. The previous masala methodology of especially mixing a special mixture of scented powders for every fragrance was replaced by a way easier and fewer overpriced technique is known as dipping, during which unscented wood or charcoal sticks are unfit into an answer of scented oil diluted with a chemical solvent and artificial fixative. Even in India {the ancient|the traditional} art has become a business.

The old masala formulas were forgotten. Dipping and dilution with solvents became the standard technology. More and lower priced synthetics replaced natural ingredients. Only the practice of hand-rolling sticks is maintained, but these are unscented sticks used only for dipping. Our quest was begun to revive a lost art, not just to imitate what was done of old, but to recast it to suit the tastes of our times. After a prolonged search and countless experiments, we have rediscovered the masala method and the secrets of nature's spices. The Bliss Fragrances is made in the spirit of that ancient tradition by the age-old masala method--no dipping--to produce soft, light and subtle fragrances which emit only a little smoke, making them highly suitable for burning indoors.
