Create an inviting Aromafume (News updated 3rd October 2016)

Create an inviting aroma with our newly launched Aromafume Incense Bricks. Using a traditional process and handmade methods, these incense come in a variety of fragrances.

The incense bricks evaporate slowly through the heat of the candle, therefore there is no smoke and no ash.  Nor will any toxic substances be produced, leaving only a dry brick that can be disposed of with organic waste.  

We recommend the diffuser set which includes a tea light candle, a cork coaster for protected use and instructions on how to use.     

With a variety of scents available from Lemon Mist, Orchid Karma and Royal Sandal, you’ll sure to find the perfect varieties to detox and relax.

The new range can be found in our collection of: Gifts: Incense & Holders.
