Nag Champa Incense is by far one of the most loved and widely used incense worldwide today.
It is a distinct, unique, and beautiful fragrance that originated from the South Asian countries of India and Nepal. It was traditionally used in monasteries for spiritual and meditative purposes. Since the use of the incense was limited to religious practices, most monasteries created their own unique formula that was used secretly among monks. Most people outside monasteries were not able to attain the secret incense like they can today.
Currently, the use of Nag Champa is more widespread and easily available. During the youth movement that was started by the hipster subculture, people from western countries traveled to India and were impressed by the notion of being spiritually enlightened. These young people began to bring over several of the practices and along with that was this great incense from India into countries like America.
In the western world, Nag Champa is not used for spiritual purposes as much as before. Most people just enjoy the sweet and unique aroma and believe that it creates a therapeutic atmosphere.
Nag Champa is made from a combination of flowers, resins, essential oils and herbs. It derived its name from the champa flower; which is the main ingredient used in the making of this traditional incense that originates from India.
Nag Champa is used mainly in meditation calming and in the creation of sacred spaces. The incense is also used in the morning prayers, religious ceremonies. It is also a very common incense burnt in homes and offices just for it's wonderful aroma. Be Kind Roger Marlow
