Incense (Latin: incendere, “to burn”)is composed of aromatic biotic materials, which release fragrant smoke when burning. The term “incense” refers to the substance itself, rather than to the odor that it produces. It is used in religious ceremonies, ritual purification, aromatherapy, meditation, for creating a mood, masking bad odours, and in medicine. Incense burning may have originated in Ancient Egypt, where the gum resins and oleo gum resins of aromatic trees were imported from the Arabian and Somali coasts to be used in religious ceremonies.
In recent years, the tradition of making serious natural incense by hand has almost died out in India. dhuni was formed with the intention of keeping these traditions alive and, quite simply, making the finest hand-rolled incense in the world. We hope you like it.
