A traditional form of incense used in Tibet and Nepal, this bundle of "ropes" is formed from incense powder blended and bound to rice paper which is then rolled and braided. Patchouli has a characteristic strong, sweet, and spicy scent long said to inspire, attract and intensify love. Comes in a bundle of approximately 40 to 45 sticks, 3.5" long. You can burn rope incense by lying it flat on a bed of sand or on a fire-proof plate, which allows the entire rope to burn safely and completely or use a rope incense burner. Handcrafted in Nepal.
