What is Bakhoor?

Bakhoor is the Arabic name given to wood chips, resins and natural oils which are then burned on charcoal and incense burners to create an ambiance in the home or used to perfume the clothing.    Bakhoor is used on special occasions or generally to perfume the house. The bakhoor is usually burned in a mabkhara, a traditional incense burner also known as Bakhoor Burner.

Method of burning Bakhoor:

Take a piece of coal and heat a corner of it with a small flame in incense burner or suitable metal dish. Wait for 2 minutes, then sprinkle a small amount of Bakhoor incense on to hot coal. Sit back as the beautiful fragrance fills the room.

Safety Precautions: Use Bakhoor in a well ventilated room, burning supplies should be kept away from small children and pets. During incense burning at very high temperatures, incense burners can become very hot. Please do not leave unattended while in use.
