Why Burn Sandalwood Powder Instead of Incense in Your Home

Why Burn Sandalwood Powder Instead of Incense in Your Home

Many people like to freshen their home with incense. Smells often remind us of a holiday, place we visit, a person or a memory. But what we don't want are the synthetics and chemicals that are added to cheap incense sticks. Often it is impossible to find out what is exactly in the incense sticks. Unfortunately harsh chemicals like DEP are regularly used to keep the powder formula to stick to the bamboo stick, or cheap synthetic fragrances used that are not designed to be burned. 

Traditionally, and still today, many people burn the chips or powder of aromatic timbers instead of using the incense stick. You can easily do this at home and have piece of mind that you are only burning the tree powder and not anything that may harm you or your family. 

New Mountain Merchants offer Sandalwood and Agarwood raw chips and powder that are sustainable, natural and 100% pure. 

For Sandalwood Powder, simply make a little 'pyramid ' in a heat safe dish and light the top. The powder will slowly burn and provide you with a grounding and calming Sandalwood aroma throughout your home.

Sandalwood and Agarwood chips are best burned on fragrance free charcoal or through an electric burner. 

Agarwood is known to be one of the most potent aphrodisiacs, so if you want to set the mood, why not give it a go!
