Nag Champa Rope Incense, Tibetan Rope Incense, Hand-Rolled Rope Incense from Tibet, Nag Champa Rope from Tibet

Rope incense is popular in the temples of Tibet. The end of the rope is lit, and it smolders, the scent is released.


Rope incense is made by putting herbs and other plant materials on rice paper in very thin strips, then twisting the rice paper to form a 'rope'.


To burn rope incense, we recommend two different methods:


  1. Burn the rope incense lying flat on a bed of ash. This will allow the rope to burn safely, or
  2. Use a rope incense burner. 


We have tried the single use burners that come with Himalayan rope incense, but not had much success. We also sell this rope incense burner made by Mars. 


Includes 1 package of Nag Champa rope incense, 45 ropes.


Nag Champa is actually not a brand name, but refers to a classic recipe used for centuries to scent temples, homes and even people. Nag Champa is of Indian origin, and formulas will vary, but generally it contains sandalwood and either champak (from a large evergreen tree in the magnolia family) or frangipani (aka plumeria, a flowering plant). Many people find a specific version of Nag Champa that they love and become very loyal to that one recipe.


Handmade in Tibet.
