First grade quality Frankincense "Greek Jasmine".
Orthodox incense, hand made by Greek Orthodox monks from the Skete of Small Saint Anna, on Holy Mt Athos. The proper use of incense It is very important for the incense to maintain its aroma, to be stored in a jar that closes tight and be kept in a cool and dry place, because the heat can damage the incense and become gummy.
The good incese has to stay "hard" and releases its aroma slowly. Lit the coal for few seconds before and when you'll see it turn grey u00a0and burning well, then put the incense on the coal of the censer. Never put incense on top of a coal that you just lit, because the incense will melt without release its aroma.Always be very careful where you lit the censer, because it will become very hot and use a sturdy surface.
