Since ancient times cultures throughout the world have recognized that many natural substances have purifying or healing properties when burned. The burning of ‘dhoops’ or botanical mixtures was a daily ritual usually performed at sunrise and sunset. Because virtually all homes made daily fires, the coals were readily available. The hot coals were placed into a censor and used for burning herbs.
To use, simply break off a piece of the dhoop coal and light a corner. Once it begins to smolder place the coal in a fireproof container. Add your favorite resin, herbs, or powdered incense and enjoy the sweet aroma. Hand made by a Nepal cottage industry. Each package contains six tablets.
