Do you have watery eyes, irritated notes when burning incense?
Some people, when facing challenges in their lives, pray to God to give them strength. They are burning incense while making wishes and hope that their wishes will come true.
Or some just burn incense because that is their daily ritual.
Many of them find that after several minutes they developed itchy, watery eyes, and itchy notes Some people even start to cough. These adverse reactions stop when the incense burns off completely or extinguished.
What causes these reactions?
More than likely, it is the smoke, coming from the incense they are using.
Smoke is from burning incense ingredients. And if the incense contains harmful fragrance oil, the smoke will cause adverse effects to your body.
Why do the manufacturers do this?
Because people want cheap and affordable incense.
Real ingredients are not cheap, but the fragrance oil mixed with sawdust is. And if you asked the vendors or the sellers what are their incense made of, chances are they would not be able to answer you directly because they do not know. These harmful fragrance oils are also trade-secret so the vendors will not reveal them to you.
If you do not want to suffer from these harmful smoke, then you may want to choose a “greener” incense
Incense made by a farmer
My brother is a farmer and I am going to share with you a hard-to-believe but true statement
In this incense, there are only three ingredients:
spent Agarwood and
tree-derived adhesive (from Litsea Glutinosa)
a bamboo stick
Why is this hard to believe?
Most manufacturers who produce joss stick will mix fragrance oil to scent their incense. That is why you feel bitterness, harsh burning notes when you light your incense.
You see, some incense with an eye-catching package is retailing at $4. Please note that include all duties and taxes. I know a packaging manufacturer, he told me the package alone would cost them $1.2 to make. It means that the package is more expensive than the incense itself.
You will see a clear difference with this Spiritual Communicator incense when you compare one on one. The only smell you will find the warm light woody agarwood (although it is not top of the line quality) because there are only three ingredients. The tree-derived adhesive is odourless, and the bamboo stick will not burn automatically.
What is "Spent agarwood"
Spent Agarwood is the pulverised agarwood powder-- that was used to distil agarwood oil.
Although this powder is "spent", it is still aromatic when burning. There fore, it is suitable to make natural budget incense
And yes you are getting 100g of incense, not 10g, not 20g not 50g manufactured by the old-school way - 100% natural plant-derived ingredients (Aquilaria, Litsea and Bamboo that is).
Number of stick 145 approximately.
Length of each stick: 20cm
Burning time each stick: 40 to 45 minutes
Made in Vietnam
You are getting 96.67 hours worth of burning incense if you burn one stick at a time which we encourage you to do. More is less because one is all you need to feel the fragrance.
If you want a fancy packaging, with incense made from highly resinous agarwood, this Spiritual Communicator incense is not the right one for you.
But if you simply want woody, environmentally friendly, sustainable incense and cost-effective, you will like this incense just fine.
