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.

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.
