Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa Incense Sticks 100gr
Nag Champa is sweet & long lasting, made with the bright and intoxicating flowers of the Champaca and hand-rolled onto a bamboo stick. Developed by Indian spiritual teacher Sathya Sai Baba, Nag Champa is an aromatic, restorative blend of resins, gums, spices, flowers and oils, perfect for everyday use.
Probably the most popular hand rolled incense worldwide, the unique scent of Nag Champa is derived primarily from the Champaca flower, (Magnolia Champaca tree), Halmaddi (Ailanthus Malabarica tree) and Sandalwood, along with other natural resins and herbs. Cultivated as a sacred plant, the Champaca can be found throughout India, Vietnam, parts of China, and other tropical lands of Asia. In India this beautiful and shady evergreen tree is revered, and often planted on the grounds of Hindu Temples or Ashrams. It is considered to be sacred to the Hindu god Vishnu and is traditionally burned for meditation ceremonies.
Nag Champa became popular in modern Western Culture in the 60’s and 70’s when burned at the performances of Dylan, The Grateful Dead, and others. The heady fragrance became part of the concert experience for millions of music fans and is still beloved by many today.
You will recognize good quality by its grayish colour and strong earthy scent, which is evident even before the incense is burned. This is an absolute favourite of ours as a day to day incense. The scent is pleasant, reminiscent of the Champa Flower with lighter notes of sandalwood. People who have smelled nag champa often comment on its warm, earthy scent.
To use incense, place it in an appropriate holder and simply light the tip. Once a flame appears, gently blow it out so that it is left to slowly burn. Some people are sensitive to some scents or the smoke that is released, even though it is very minimal. If this happens, just place your holder on a higher shelf.
