Nepali Rope Incense
From the Himalayan Region of Nepal, Himalayan Cedar wood is rolled by hand using lokta paper forming this fragrant rope incense. Traditionally, they are found in temples and stupas while meditating.
Approximately 50 strands are in a bundle. Each strand burns between 15 - 20 mins. Burn rope incense by lying it flat on a bed of sand or a fire proof vessel.
Nepali Rope Incense belongs to the long tradition of family cottage industries in the Himalayas. Almost all young children learn to twist ropes from their grandparents and eventually teach their own children or grandchildren. The ropes are produced in large quantities by farmers and other villagers during the off season. High quality aromatic medicinal herbs are gathered and dried. Herbs used have fumigation qualities and purify the atmosphere when burned. Lokta paper made from the Daphne bush is used to contain the herbs. The herbal blend is placed in the paper and given an artistic twist to create the rope like strands.
