  • Red Jawi. Traditional Arabian Incense-Bakhour-LubanJawi

    Red Jawi is produced in India specifically (and only) for the Arabian market. One finds Red Jawi throughout the Soukhs of the Mediterranean and Arabia. In these areas, it is a common incense material used in local traditions and folk magic for cleansing spaces and perfuming the surroundings.

    The name Jawi is a short form of Luban Jawi. This is what the Arabian explorers called Benzoin resin when they conquered Indonesia. The name means "Frankincense of Java". Luban Jawi eventually got anglicized to Gum Benjamin and later to Benzoin.
    One can find Jawi in many forms; white, red and green Jawi are the most ubiquitous.
    Jawi is usually found as a compound incense blended containing a small amount of Benzoin, resin or rosin from other trees, (Sal resin?), and Vanillin.
    Red Jawi always contains Vanillin and sometimes a little bit of Rose aroma added to it. However, I detected no rose aroma in this shipment.
    Red Jawi needs to be burned on a hot charcoal.

    An electric or tealight heater will not provide the temperature required to release its aroma.
    As many perfumers and aroma explorers can attest, Jawi does not tincture well in alcohol and provides little aroma except when burned.

    Materials: Benzoin Compound, Jawi, Bakhour.
