Lumbini Rope Incense

  • A classic example of the Himalayan art of rope incense where raw incense powder is twisted into ropes of handmade paper. The Lumbini Zimpu Ritual incense blend is formulated from a traditional formula originating in Tibet.

    • approximately 50 twisted rope strands
    • contains Himalayan herbs including red and white sandalwood, nagi, and saffron
    • all natural with no wooden sticks, glues, or dyes
    • handmade in Nepal according to a traditional Buddhist formula
  • For you to consider, the following is from the maker's packaging:

    "Lumbini Incense. Zimpu ritual incense, its special manner of preparation is one of the ancient traditional arts of the monastic orders of Tibet. It is composed of 25 ingredients of which saffron, nagi, red and white sandalwood form a part. Made by hand in Nepal."

  • Natural herbs and spices are mixed together in a masala preparation and sprinkled onto strips of handmade paper which are then twisted into the classic rope incense form. The paper is sometimes called Nepali rice paper but it is actually Lotka handmade paper. Lotka refers to a small woody plant of the Laurel family which grows at over 6000 feet in the Himalayas, and has been traditionally used in Nepal to make paper. Lotka paper is a renewable resource, and provides a source of income to paper crafting families and village communities.
