Description

Momostemango Incense nibs are brought from the colourful markets of Momostenego municipality in Guatemala.
The ancient Mayan traditions and tribes are alive and well in the Momostenango region and the Mayan presence is often found blended into the mainstream Catholic institution, rites and rituals.

These incense nibs are produced locally by soaking small sections of basketry cane in fresh liquid Copal resin.

Because of the wide variety of resin-bearing trees in the area and the fact that the locals use the generic name of Copal for every fragrant tree resin, it has been impossible to ascertain exactly which tree species provides the resin for these cool incense nibs.

What I can say with certainty, is that they are a joy to burn on the coal or the electric burner at high heat.
They emit a wonderfully sweet aroma that lasts quite a while into the process and one finds that the aroma of the cane does not detract from the aromatic experience.

These are a one-off purchase and may not be available again once sold out.

The Momostenango Nibs are packaged in traditional leaf envelopes and make a lovely gift.
Each leaf wrapper contains 6 incense nibs.

The aroma of the Nibs on the coal is sweet, cleansing and uplifting.

    Incense smells fine. More resinous than I thought it would be. The resinous scent is not strong at all and you do catch a very light sweeter note in the beginning. This should last me quite awhile.

    Awesome service ~ and plan to be met with an pleasant experience upon opening your box ~ I found these subtle, far from overwhelming and can use inside with electric burner.

    These incense are a warm clean aroma. They burn nicely on the small charcoal chip I use for other incense and resins. Love how the aroma lingers for a few days. Makes working in my office very pleasant.
