Incense handmade by the Brotherhood

We supply Orthodox incense made in the traditional manner by the monks of the brotherhood. The incense is available by the pound or in small sachets.

The incense is made by grinding pure Frankincense to a fine powder and adding fragrant oils to produce a strongly perfumed incense. As many as twenty different fragrances are added to make each incense, many of which are natural flower extracts.

The incense is then rolled out by hand and cut into small pieces.
A small amount of talcum powder is used to keep the grains separate.

Orthodox incense is traditionally fragrant but does not produce copious amounts of thick smoke. As a result, many customers use our incense as it does not cause choking or coughing. Also, as the fragrance is completely incorporated into the incense rather than simply sprayed on, the incense lasts longer both in storage and in use. Only four or five grains are needed to cense a church, but more can be added if dense clouds of incense are required.

The incense is burned in the normal manner with charcoal, but placing the incense next to the charcoal rather than directly onto it produces a longer lasting fragrance.

The incense should be stored in a cool place.
