FRAGRANCE: lavender, geranium, Indian kewda flower, vetiver & clove
Hand rolled incense made from pure and natural ingredients. Each fragrance has honey and a resin called Halmaddi as its base.
Atma Nagchampa is a sweet floral fragrance where natural lavender lends a refreshing and calming note. A clean note of fresh lavender is complimented by the pleasant fruity- flowery aroma of Indian kewra flowers (pandanus flowers). Together with glorious smelling geraniums they add rosiness to this fragrance. The clean woody aroma of light vetiver and the earthy, spicy, and sweet fragrance of clove add a touch of oriental note resulting in a refreshing and elegant fragrance that brings rejuvenation and calm.
The Mother’s India Nagchampa Fragrances incense are made with a wide range of aromatic gums, resins, wood powders including sandalwood powder, essential oils and perfumes. However the key ingredient is a native Indian resin called Halmaddi, a soft gum like resin obtained from the Ailanthus Malabarica tree by making incisions in the bark. This tree is commonly called The Tree of Heaven.
Halmaddi is treacle (like sugar cane syrup or molasses) like when it is fresh and hardens into a brittle but plastic resin with a strong balsamic odour. That is why Halmaddi is normally preserved in water to help it retain its moisture.
When mixed with honey, its balsamic odour is further sweetened. The combination of Halmaddi and Honey enables the slow and long burning of nagchampa incense and gives them diffusiveness and burning life of amazing degree. Halmaddi is revered for its metaphysical and medicinal values.
