Recent Reviews of Our Scented Wares

On Lavender Kyphi Supreme Incense ~ "I ordered three incenses; all were works of olfactory art, and I'm reviewing this one because it's my favourite. The scent is so serene, quieting the mind for meditation, carrying away stress, or perfuming the room before sleep. I love my entire order and am so glad to have this wonderful incense that is obviously handmade with such care." Oct. 17, 2014

Made in organic jojoba. 10 mls roll-on bottle.

Alhulm, the Dreaming Incense

So, Alhulm, the Dreaming Incense, is being just a little bit difficult. It won't stay lit. It will burn for about 10 or 12 minutes, then it slowly stops burning. It could be that it isn't completely dry yet, but I think it might be more like the resin content is interfering with a consistent burn. This isn't necessarily a bad thing -- inconvenient to those of you who torch your incense, but nothing to worry about if you use an electric incense burner or an candle lit oil diffuser to 'warm' your incense. In fact, that's the preferred method of 'burning' incense; low heat, slow 'burn' = long-lasting, beautiful, true-to-source smelling incense. Believe it or not, I don't have an electric incense heater -- it's on the wish list, but as of yet, I haven't made the investment. Too many beautiful resins and woods and herbs out there to buy and learn about to fuss with a fancy pants (much needed) electric burner.
