- Tibetan Incense is hand-rolled from natural herbal ingredients with no bamboo stick in the center. Hand-prepared incense has been used for hundreds of years in the Himalayan regions of Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan and is deeply rooted in Tibetan culture. When burned, Tibetan incense produces a rich, earthy, and pure aroma which can help soothe and calm a restless mind. It is widely used to purify the environment and aid meditation and relaxation. Tibetan medicine is often used to alleviate depression, stress, and anxiety. A daily incense or sang offering is an integral part of Tibetan culture, and most homes and monasteries will have a place reserved for offering incense.
