Item Description

 

This Scented Mountain incense set consists of one package  of agarwood incense sticks and one package of incense cones.

The incense sticks (30 in a wooden box) are made from select agarwood with the highest concentration of aromatic resin available. These incense sticks are for the connoisseur looking for the best aroma possible. Burning only part of the incense stick is sufficient to produce a beautiful agarwood fragrance.

This package also includes 14 premium agarwood incense cones made from high quality agarwood in a wooden box. These long burning cones provide an agarwood aroma that lasts. Great for indoor use or outside on the patio or deck.

Agarwood is a resin produced inside a tropical rainforest tree called Aquilaria. The dark resinous wood has a magnificent aroma when burned. It is considered the finest natural incense and has been used for cultural, religious and medicinal purposes for millennia. Agarwood was traded from Asia to the Middle East in ancient times and its long history of use is cited in the bible and other early religious texts. This rare and exquisite resinous wood, coveted by Kings and royalty, is now available for everyone to enjoy.

Based on research from scientific investigations carried out over more than a decade by the Agarwood Research Project at the University of Minnesota in cooperation with the Rainforest Project Foundation, methods to cultivate agarwood have been developed and it can now be produced in a sustainable way in plantation grown trees. These trees are farmed in the mountains of southern Vietnam and products from them will provide a new economy for poor rural people. Scented Mountain is proud to offer fine cultivated agarwood products for you to enjoy with peace of mind knowing it is certified as grown from sustainable plantations.
