We bottled up the aroma of an ancient Byzantine basilica
with wooden rafters overhead and the smoke of frankincense lingering in the
air. Old Church incense is a complex and woody blend of labdanum, frankincense,
cedar & fir needle and vetiver, with a touch of spices. All incense comes in easy to open durable
plastic screw top containers to preserve fragrance and freshness.
Our Athonite Style incense is made at a Monastery here in
the USA. This is wonderful smelling incense, and it lasts up to 30 minutes. We
sell burners and censers as well, along with charcoal for the censers. This
incense would be a relaxing addition to either your home, or your personal
space such as a prayer room or devotional area. This container has 1 ounce of
incense inside, which are small irregularly shaped chunks. This is traditional
Athonite Style Incense for church and home use, in a wide variety of
fragrances, suitable for every service and devotional occasion. Athonite Style
Incense is made by monks as part of their daily obediences. Produced from pure
frankincense resin and cut for use in charcoal burning censers.
How to use the charcoal to burn resin incense: use a pair of
tongs to place a charcoal disc in the incense burner. Hold a flame to the
charcoal until sparks have trans versed the tab. The tabs ignite easily and
quickly by holding a simple, small-flamed lighter to it. When the charcoal is
fully heated, a gray, ashy soot will cover the red-hot, glowing tab. This
indicates the charcoal is ready for use. Spread the incense on top of the
charcoal using small spoon and enjoy the exotic fragrance released by the incense.
This pretty censer is made from metal, and it measures
7" tall (including finial on lid).
