The Finest Natural Ingredients
quality is based, first and foremost, on the selection of the finest natural
ingredients to create the finest incense anywhere in the world. These ingredients
are carefully sourced by the master French Perfumer who has been in charge of
quality control for more than 25 years.
Whether using Mysore Sandalwood, or Pine from the Himalayas, Lavender from France
or the finest Patchouli from Singapore, he has worked hard to locate the best
sources from the best locations around the world to create an extraordinary
fragrance in each case.
rolled in small batches for quality control
Auroshikha incense is made using a natural bamboo stick onto which a paste
made of jeegat (a natural bark), Sandalwood powder and charcoal is then hand-rolled.
The fragrances, after being carefully blended to achieve just the right note,
are then either mixed into the paste for the masala fragrances, or are impregnated
into the paste through a hand-dipping process.
uses no glue in its incense paste, and no cow dung, making
it different in this regard than many incense varieties from around the world.
real secret to achieving the consistent quality that has made Auroshikha
incense world famous is the careful blending of the fragrances personally carried
out and overseen constantly by the master French perfumer, who brings his long
experience and background and combines it with the ultimate "art"
of quality fragrance-crafting. Other than Auroshikha,
very few in the world have actually developed to this level of perfection.
The use of natural fragrances and the avoidance of using glue or cow
dung has helped Auroshikha create
non-toxic fragrances suitable for use as incense sticks in enclosed spaces.
Auroshikha has had its products tested by an independent testing laboratory
in India, and another in Europe, to ensure that they do not contain any heavy
metals and are certified non-toxic. No other incense manufacturer we know of
goes to this length to ensure the safety of its product. Auroshikha
is proud to stand behind its products as being guaranteed non-toxic based on
these test results.
The incense sticks are hand-rolled in the traditional manner and then
packaged by Indian villagers, who have developed a real cottage industry in
South India to support the world-wide demand for the Auroshikha
products. Auroshikha has helped
the villagers succeed in improving their quality of life through their high
local wage standards, as well as their financial support which enables a school
for the village children, medical support as well as water and food. Auroshikha
does not permit child labor in the production of its products; rather it has
taken great pains to ensure that the children receive a regular education
so they are prepared to live in the modern world as it is developing in India
