Ever wonder how Indian incense is made?

Since time immemorial we use incense in religious rituals. Recently we had an adventurous experience with incense on our Indian spiritual tour  and we would like to share it with you. Many people burn incense during daily meditation and relaxation as well as for many other purposes. There is a huge demand for incense all over the world. Unfortunately large industrial producers are not careful enough about all aspects of their product. Read on to find out the significant difference between natural and synthetic Indian incense. Sintetic incense can even affect your health.

Natural Indian incense has yellow colour and is smells special.

The smell of indian incense can’t be confused with any other smell.

Life is a journey that often takes you away from your planned route. We were visiting some Hindu temples in South India when we had a nice surprise. While touring among amazingly beautiful  Indian sacred sites, we just met a nice family making Indian incense or agarbattis. It was amazing! Can you believe that they were rolling them one by one? A skilled agarbatti maker can actually produce about 5000-6000 incense sticks a day!
