Dhoop Incense – Ancient Tibetan VALERIAN
11 in stock
Dhoop sticks are bamboo-less sticks featuring complex blends of herbs, resins & botanicals, creating a rustic aroma much less ‘perfumed’ than most commercial incense, and prepared entirely by hand according to ancient Tibetan medical practices. The perfect incense to enhance meditation, create a sacred atmosphere, help eliminate negative energies or stress, or rejuvenate positive energy.
Approx 30 x 11cm sticks plus a simple incense holder in each pack, or use a purpose made dhoop burner. Each stick can burn for approx. 45 – 60 min.
Valerian has been used for thousands of years as a treatment for insomnia, as well as irritability, depression, anxiety and nervous tension. The ancient Greeks called the plant “Phu” (as in, phew – what a stink!) – it has a very strong and distinctive scent. For anyone who finds the therapeutic effects of valerian invaluable, the scent can usually be tolerated or masked as the benefits far outweigh the inconvenience of the strong fragrance. Burn before bed or when stressed (never burn during sleep as incense should never be left burning while unattended).
