Saffron Incense

Saffron Incense is typically made up of an aromatic material that produces a scent and a combustible binding material that holds it together in a particular shape. The aromatic materials used for creating incense are typically plant-based and can include a range of resins, barks, seeds, roots, and flowers. The ritual of burning incense is incredibly symbolic in Hinduism.

These incense sticks burn completely into ashes yet their impact is the pleasant aromas that fill a room. This ritual represents the human sacrifice to society. Beyond this, agarbatti is used day to day as air fresheners. But devotees across Asia may well be taking their life into their hands every time they are going to a temple to wish, according to a study by a Thai doctor.

The Saffron Incense is a type of incense used in worship in many Asian countries. In Buddhism, they believe to aid spiritual communication and serve as an offering.

Saffron (Nagkeshar) Incense Sticks are traditionally hand-rolled from natural herbs, oils and other ingredients.


Nagkeshar is one of the most important ingredients in traditional Asian medicine and is widely used in Tibetan, Nepali and Indian cultures due to its healing properties. An aromatic crocus flower found in Central Asia is the main source of Nagkeshar, which signifies wealth and prosperity.


This aromatic herbal incense is effective for allergies, fever, anxiety, headaches and coughs. It promotes mental alertness and is excellent for cleansing and purifying the environment of unwanted energies and to aid relaxation and stress-relief. It is also particularly used during spiritual ceremonies and meditation sessions to create a peaceful and calm atmosphere.


Buddhists also offer incense to purify what has been offered on the altar and to create the causes to have morality, ethics and hold one's vows well - virtues of the Bodhisattva spirit of selfless altruism to benefit others. Hence it is strongly encouraged to offer the best incense (and by extension, the best offerings) that one can afford.

These natural incense sticks are non-toxic and safe for inhalation. Includes a complimentary incense holder. For the best experience, burn incense in a Tibetan-style incense burner.


Directions for Use:

  • Light the incense stick and place it horizontally on the bed of ash in an incense burner
  • A small quantity of powder incense may also be sprinkled over the lit incense 
  • Always burn incense in moderate quantities to prevent overheating
  • Never leave unattended
