Rope Incense is one of the most unique incense types you're likely to come across, handmade in Nepal using traditional methods. In the Himalayas, rope incense making is a process passed from generation to generation: dried herbs and other naturally scented botanicals are finely powdered and wrapped in a thin strip of hand-prepared eco-friendly Nepali lokta paper, which is then braided to form a rope-like dhoop stick, ready to burn.

To burn your Rope Incense, light one end as you would a standard incense stick. Once it's alight, blow out the flame to allow the stick to smoulder and release its aromatic smoke. Rest a lit stick in a heatproof dish of sand or ash, or a Rope Incense Burner. Allow to cool before disposing of the ash. Our standard sticks are long burning with approx 45 x 8-9cm sticks per pack (approx 20g in total weight). Handmade in Nepal
