Super Hit incense comes from the makers of the world famous Satya Sai Nag Champa incense. It is a natural musky spice incense that creates a deep meditative atmosphere. This is certainly one of the best affordable natural Indian incenses in the marketplace.
Nag Champa is a unique and popular incense from India. It belongs to the "Champa" class of Indian incense, originating from the Champa Flower. Champa incenses contain a natural ingredient indigenous to India called "halmaddi", which is a semi-liquid resin taken from the Ailanthus Malabarica tree. It is what gives Nag Champa its characteristic grey colour. Halmaddi is hygroscopic which means it absorbs moisture from the air. This can cause Nag Champa incenses to have a slightly damp feeling to them.
A vibrant incense that can be used for puja or simply scenting the air to create a heady ambience.

A delightful antique table top prayer wheel with the mani mantra in ranjana script on the outside of the drum. The original scroll of Tibetan mantras is housed inside the drum and these have been covered to protect them with an outer fabric layer. This fabric has also been painted on the outside with the mani mantra and sealed on the top and bottom with a dark resin. The copper on the outside was once gilded and now only faint traces of this remain. Each glass window is framed with silver. Small wheels such as this would have sat on a table so they could easily be spun whilst reciting prayers or meditating. To set the mantras in motion you simply spin the metal rod at the apex.
