Satya Sai Baba Incense Cones
I must admit that I have a slight preference for Nag Champa incense cones over the traditional incense sticks. The Satya Sai Baba brand is also one of the most famous for incense.
The standard Satya Sai Baba incense cones, easily spotted by their blue packaging, are one of my favourites due to their high concentration of sandalwood.
Nag Champa Incense Cones
The quality of these dhoop nag champa incense cones is consistently good so they’re well worth your consideration. Each individual pack typically contains the following:
- Pack contains around 12 incense cones
- Supplied with convenient metal cone holder
- Excellent burn time around 20-25 minutes
- Eco friendly recyclable packaging
- Main ingredient champa flower (sweet aroma)
Although the nag champa incense cones contain extracts from the ‘champa’ flower; sandalwood is another prominent ingredient. The classic sandalwood aroma is the main reason you should consider these highly fragrant incense cones.
Sandalwood Based Incense Cones
Although the champa flower forms the basis of all nag champa style incense, this classic nag champa aroma is achieved mainly due to its prominent sandalwood base. Natural sandalwood oils, sometimes known as essential oil, are used extensively throughout the home fragrance industry in many aromatic and beauty products.
Satya Sai Baba nag champa incense cones contain the all important sandalwood base. The East Indian form of sandalwood, with some extracts being used in the incense cone production process, is generally thought to be of the best quality. The West Indian variety, sandalwood amyris, is a poor substitute and bears no botanical relation to the Indian sandalwood.
Burning Incense Cones Safely
The compact size of the Satya incense cones means that they’re much easier to manage than incense sticks. Lighting the incense cone is easy and then you simply blow the flame out after a few seconds. The incense aroma is gradually released over about 25 minutes and is ideal for a quick room freshen up or for relaxation.
Always use a purpose made incense holder when burning your incense cones as the base becomes extremely hot. Nag champa incense cones are widely available online and start at a very reasonable £1.25 – £1.50 for the smallest pack.
