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!
