Handmade Kyphi Incense
Egyptian Temple Incense, otherwise known as kyphi, is a beautiful, labour-intensive form of incense that takes over a month to complete.
It has a rich, deep, spicy fragrance that evokes its ancient beginnings.
This incense has been made with wildcrafted and organic herbs from my garden, the best imported spices, resins, and raisins soaked in a deep, dark Merlot wine from British Columbia, Canada and mixed with local honey. It really doesn't get any better than this.
If you have never used kyphi before and are used to incense sticks and cones, be aware that kyphi is not the same thing at all. That intense scent you get with cones and sticks? That usually comes from artificial perfumes added to something burnable like sawdust. It's not here with this kyphi because I do not add artificial fragrances to the mix. Nor do I use sawdust. Everything I make is 100% natural and safe.
Approx 1/2 ounce formed into small bricks.
Directions for use: A little goes a long way, so this should last for quite a long time. Break off a small bit to burn on a piece of tin foil placed on your lit charcoal tablet in a fire-safe container on a surface that is protected from heat. The tin foil is really the key, as this incense can get quite smoky if burnt directly on a charcoal tablet. Kyphi really comes into its own when used in an electric incense burner, as the incense is heated but not burnt. I highly recommend seeking one out.

1. This incense gets darker as it ages. The incense you receive may be quite a bit darker than it is in these images.
2. This incense MUST be burned using a charcoal tablet (not included) or in an electric incense burner. It is especially effective when burned on a sheet of foil placed over a charcoal tablet. It is NOT self-burning. Please be careful when using charcoal tablets and always be sure to protect flammable surfaces by placing the tablet in a bowl of sand or salt when lit.
