Atmospheric & Tranquil BOKHOOR INCENSE BY AL-IMAN AGARWOOD - 50gms

£44.00

What is Bukhoor?

Elegant enough to be burned for the most formal of occasions and yet most suitable to be fumigated and enjoyed for your every day. They are at your service – whether for the scenting of your self, home and wardrobe, or to achieve a state of calmness and meditation through their psychoactive effect.

Bukhoor (Arabic spelling: بخور‎), or Bakhour, is the Arabic name given to scented bricks or a blend of natural traditional ingredients, mainly woodchips (Oud, Agarwood or Aloeswood) soaked in fragrant oils and mixed with other natural ingredients (Resin, Musk, Ambergris, Sandalwood , flower oils and others). These scented chips/bricks are burned in charcoal burners to perfume the house and clothing with the fragrance rich smoke. This is used specifically on special occasions like weddings or on relaxing times and love occasions or generally just to perfume the house or store, and to boost positive energy. It is traditional in many Arab countries to pass Bukhoor among guests in Majlis as a gesture of hospitality.

The Bukhoor is usually burned in a traditional incense burner (also known as Mabkhara) using charcoal of wood or manufactured charcoal discs and briquettes.

Tranquil Agarwood Incense
Contains 50 grams

Bukhoor (Arabic spelling: بخور‎), or Bakhour, is the Arabic name given to wood chips or chipped bricks soaked in pure fragrant oils. The wood chips are also known as ‘Oud‘, which is translated ‘Wood‘ in English. 

It is a very popular Arab tradition and still hugely practiced in the world today. The word Bukhoor can be used to describe scented the chipped wood or the scented chipped bricks that can look very much like tiny crystals that smell gorgeously amazing and popular for their very long lasting fragrance.

Used for thousands of years, Bakhoor first originated with the nomadic Levantine tribes, who upon setting up a camp, would burn Agarwood chips to both fragrance the air and deter insects and spirits. 

A more gentle way of enjoying the aroma of Oud, Bakhoor (or Bukhoor; بخور) is the name given to Agarwood chips that have been soaked with jasmine and sandalwood to soften and sweeten the heavy scents, or amber and citrus essential oils to add crisp notes to the rising vapours.

They are then compressed and shaped before being packaging in square, flat blocks segmented into equal portions. At home, pieces are then burnt over a charcoal stove or electric burner to release plumes of fragrant smoke to fill the room.
