- Tibetan Incense is hand-rolled from natural herbal ingredients with no bamboo stick in the center. Hand-prepared incense has been used for many 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 as an aid for meditation and relaxation. In Tibetan medicine, it is often used to alleviate depression, stress, and anxiety. A daily incense or sang offering is an important part of Tibetan culture and most homes and monasteries will have a place reserved for offering incense.
