This incense is commonly used to set the mood for meditation, yoga and relaxation. This incense is made using natural ingredients and was the first incense originally offered by Nitiraj in 1979 in the European market. Nitiraj Original has been recommended by meditation, yoga and feng shui instructors in Europe for over 30 years. This type of incense is known as a masala which means spice. This is because the incense is made from a complex blend of natural fragrant oils, forest herbs and spices. This results in a soft incense that always remains moist, for this reason it's very slow burning. Each incense stick will burn for an hour and the fragrance will linger for days.
