Ancient Egyptian Kyphi

Scents of Earth
$14.95

For ancient Egyptians, burning incense was a daily celebration of fragrance, and their favorite incense of all 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 Kyphi being used and recipes for making it.

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

Made of 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.

Ancient Egyptian Kyphi

This is an extremely challenging incense to make and Scents of Earth has created a beautifully done rendition. It is warm, sweet, spicy and comforting all at once; when heated indirectly, the subtle scent permeates a room slowly and thoroughly until anyone coming in looks around wildly saying things like "What IS that? I don't see any incense!" It's a real treat and a testament to the master blenders at Scents of Earth. I love it. Thank you for making it.

Awesome

I have tried a few Kyphi and this is best and freshest that I have experienced so far. Scents of Earth is one of the best out here. If not the Best,,,,
