I love the packaging of this incense with the sacred heart shaped leaf of the Bodhi tree, thought to be the tree that Buddha was sitting under when he found enlightenment. It has an amazing scent which is hard for me to describe as it has a perfectly blended aroma that is woodsy, green, herbaceous and sweet and no herb overpowers the other.
This Bodhileaf Tibetan Incense is hand manufactured based on the principles of the Buddhist medicinal system and formulation prescribed by a great yogi of Bodhi Buddhism School in Tibet.
Green Tara Incense (Deflects obstructing evil and helps one to accomplish their life’s purpose. Helps one to attain Nirvana)
According to the Tibetan indigenous medicinal theory, a blend of this incense with the fragrance of sandalwood and other precious herbal medicinal ingredients helps to facilitate meditation, increasing a feeling of tranquillity. Also used to make an offering to the different gods & goddesses.
Natural herbs and spices are mixed together and pressured, then moulded into rods Tibetan style. These incense rods are wrapped up in Lokta paper. Lokta is a shrub that grows on the southern hillsides of the forests of the Himalayas between 5,500 and 13,000 feet of altitude. It is traditionally used in Nepal to produce paper. Lokta paper is a renewable resource and a source of income for agricultural communities.
Gemstones not included.
I don’t have many gemstones but I have been able to get most of mine second hand. This is because I do not wish to contribute to mining, poor working conditions and degradation of land and ecology when these gems are mined. This mining also leads to soil disruption, erosion and polluting of water sources.
