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.

This is by far the best Kyphi that I have purchased. I use it for hoodoo rituals and i will say this, I noticed a significant difference in the effects of my ceremony after burning this kyphi ...my ancestors are pleased

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.
