For ancient Egyptians, burning incense was a daily celebration of fragrance and their most treasured incense was Kyphi. On a daily basis, the ritualized burning of incense in ancient Egypt consisted of frankincense in the morning, myrrh during the day, and Kapet (Kyphi from the Greek translation) in the evening. According to Egyptologists, Kyphi played an important role as a sacred fragrance in many ceremonies. 

Various Kyphi recipes were made, some using about a dozen ingredients, while others included over fifty. Kyphi recipes are inscribed on the walls of the ancient temples of Edfu and Philae with pictographs of the burning of Kyphi and recipes for making the sacred blend.

Kyphi produces a beautiful, full-bodied, rich multi-layered bouquet with a warm, relaxing, sweet, spicy and sensual aroma. We present our popular re-creation of this ancient Egyptian incense.

Made with only the finest natural organic and wild-crafted ingredients: Red wine, Tupelo honey, Sultana raisins, Storax Bark, Saffron, Sandalwood, Aloeswood, Frankincense, Mastic, Benzoin, Cardamom seeds, Galangal root, Lemongrass, Rose petals and more.

Handcrafted in-house in very small batches.

    Kyphi Incense

    Posted by Mark Grillo on Jan 6th 2022

    Scents of Earth's Kyphi initially emits rich, deep, sweet notes of wine, honey and the honeycomb. These are followed by delicate middle notes of ginger, juniper berries and vetiver. There are dominant, finishing, notes of exotic woods; sandal and precious aloes. All incense aficionados and those who are intrigued by the history of Ancient Egypt owe it to themselves to let this mysterious fragrance transport them 3,000 years into the past, to be placed in the mighty shadows of the Pyramids, the watchful gaze of the Sphinx, and the opulent splendor of the Pharaohs' Courts .

    Works Perfectly

    Up until this point I have been using sand at the bottom of my censer, but this ash keeps the charcoal warm - so it burns longer and more efficiently! I love it, and I will certainly buy more.

    Kyphi worth a try

    Posted by Philip Ward on Apr 24th 2021

    When i first get the kyphi it is soft. I cut it up into pieces because it hardens up. I have been burning it on shoyeido charcoal. It is very exciting to be burning an egyptian recipe incense. The scent lingers and is very pleasant. It isnt your typical sandalwood or aloeswood based incense. This is my second purchase of this incense.

    The smell of this is good. Saffron strands are visible in this and adds to the aroma.

    I have not enjoyed an incense blend more than Kyphi. Impossible to describe, deeply relaxing. If your looking for a completely positive experience maybe even a magical state of conciousness, Kyphi will help you get there.

    This is a lot different than some other Kyphi I’ve tried from another vendor, personally I’ve tried it on charcoal and indirectly heated by a tea light candle diffuser, did not care for the aroma being indirectly heated but burnt on charcoal It was very pleasant, a complexity of aromas, one of my personal favorites for the charcoal.
