Anyone who knows much of anything about incense or aromatherapy is likely to be familiar with Nag Champa. There’s a lot to love about this classic scent—it’s earthy, calming, and just generally pleasant.
For many, though, the smoke from incense can be off-putting. Luckily, we’ve developed a way for you to enjoy the positive effects of the Nag Champa aroma without the unbridled smoke through our backflow incense cones.
Our Champa Flower cone is designed specially to send smoke down into a backflow burner, creating a controlled and calming environment while burning incense. This allows you to have a more curated experience when you choose to engage in aromatherapy. Even better, this scent is non-synthetic, hand-dipped and harkens to the classic Nag Champa aroma.
All of this is complemented by the fact that Wild Berry mixes in a bit of a special ingredient that keeps our backflow cones burning much longer than your average incense. What all of this boils down to is that our champa flower backflow cones will offer all of the classic aroma you’re looking for with a handful of added benefits.
There have historically been many different scent blends that comprise Nag Champa. Our Champa Flower is a bit of an exotic aroma (as is the flower itself), with sweet floral notes of rose, herbaceous elements, and wild berry scents. Diving deeper into this complex aroma, you’ll notice patchouli, vanilla, and sandalwood—the last of which is a classic Nag Champa scent, present in virtually all Nag Champa.
In fact, sandalwood has been the base of Nag Champa incense since long before it ever made its way to the United States. Before the 1960s, incense wasn’t present anywhere in the country. Back when the concept of aromatherapy was unique to India and Nepal, the champa flower was popularly used as a form of perfume.
Because this tree flower has such a naturally sweet aroma, Indian and Nepalese people would distill the scent into oils that they could then apply to their bodies and hair. Eventually, the sweet, nectary scent of the Champa flower was combined with some other flavors.
While there are a number of different scents that have historically been combined with champa flower in order to create nag champa, sandalwood is a unifying element. The unique blends of scents that made up individual brands of Nag Champa were held in secret, often used to aid meditation in monasteries.
Although that’s obviously not common practice in the United States, the aroma became popular in the 1960s for the same reason—it purifies and transforms the energy of the space where it’s burnt.
If you feel that your environment could use a shift, Nag Champa can serve to do just that in a way that’s non-invasive and calming. Best of all, you can now enjoy these benefits in the easier to use form of a backflow cone. So sit back, relax, and allow the power of Champa Flower to whisk you away.
