Athonite Style Incense

What is Athonite style incense and how is it made?  In the tradition of Mt. Athos (The Holy Mountain), it begins with pure frankincense tears, added fragrance, & aromatic wood resins.  Pure frankincense resin is ground into a fine powder, which is then saturated with rich fragrant oil.  Kneading this mixture by hand, it is brought to a dough-like consistency.  It is then time for the rolling and cutting of the incense. The monks begin their work with the prayer, “Through the prayers of our holy fathers, Lord Jesus Christ, our God, have mercy on us; and continue with the Jesus Prayer, taking turns reciting “Lord Jesus Christ Son of God have mercy on me” as they roll and cut the incense.  The grains of incense now covered with the finest fire-purified clay powder to mitigate the stickiness of the mixture, are cured for a minimum of 30 days.  This cured incense, rich in fragrance is then prayerfully prepared and packaged.  This incense would make an excellent gift, for anyone wanting to experience some of the finest incense anywhere!

Panagia
Tags:

We offer this rose fragrance in honor of the Panagia ("All Holy"). This rose fragrance is also known as Rosa Damascena, and is the most sought after rose for making rose oil. The fragrant rose is so sweet and pleasant that it was brought to Europe all the way from its native Syria and cultivated in large rose gardens in order to produce its rich natural perfume. When you burn this incense, your church or home will smell like fresh roses for the rest of the day, maybe longer!
