Wonderful hand made fairtrade incense

Incense is special.
Over the centuries, the art of making incense faded and with industrialisation, became just incense - another mass produced roughly made item with inferior ingredients, devoid of any spiritual meaning. When Mother's Fragrances were created they wanted to revive the ancient art and try to return to a pure, beautiful and spiritual product.

They re-discovered the masaia method. This method of creating incense mixes all the ingredients together in a paste, which is then hand rolled into cones or incense sticks. It allows the use of a large variety of ingredients: resins, wood powders, herbs, precious essential oils and floral essences, and avoids the use of chemicals. It creates a light, clean burning incense that creates a minimum of ash and slowly spreads smoke, and a gentle aroma. Enjoy the difference!

Fairtrade: The Mother's Fragrances make a happy change from conventional practices. they are deeply committed to the wellbeing and prosperity of the people who make the incense, and the project employs nearly 400 people, mainly women, who have a very good job. They enjoy decent working hours good working conditions and pleasant and spacious work environments. Their wages are above minimum wage and far higher than the industry's average, and they benefit from savings scheme, medical insurance and a bicycle scheme.
