What is in Sunpati Incense?
- Rhododendron Anthopogon leaves and flowers
The main botanical is Rhododendron Anthopogon, known as Sunpati in Nepal where it is grown.This sacred plant is the national symbol of Nepal
It has a long sacred history…..
The leaves and flowers have an exotic honey floral aroma with lingering sweet fruity notes.
Anthopogon is used in Buddhist temples extensively. This is a wonderful calming incense for meditation to help make spiritual connections by opening the mind and heart to a free flow of positive energy through its grounding, calming, and centering properties.
One of the most well-known benefits of Rhododendron anthopogon is its ability to quiet an overactive mind
- Linden Leaves and Flowers (Tilia Cordata) and essential oil
I could not describe Linden any better….
“Green apple sweet! Honey, pale tobacco, hay, oh, Tilia cordata! It’s a ride through the countryside with all the windows down at that time between spring and summer when the green grass is thigh high and the flowers a little faded. It’s farm stands with berries and late spring greens for sale, and motes of pollen in sunlight.
Sweet, sweet floral with deep green apple skin notes, mixed with honey Ah, there’s a lovely wine-like quality, a white with fruit notes, crisp and clean and sweet.”
One of the most frequent uses for Linden in Tea (or incense) is an anxiety aid, as its soothing properties helping reduce stress and anxiety. It has a minor effect on your hormone levels, inducing a state of relaxation for both, the body and the mind.
Although linden blossom grows widely and is used as an herb, the essential oil is hard to come by. It is cultivated limitedly and mostly in France.
The Linden tree features prominently in poetry, songs, and literature and was also a highly symbolic and hallowed tree to the Germanic people in their native pagan mythology.
"Linden is a mother of a tree - everything about her is feminine, nurturing, loving and caring as only mothers can be. She spreads her branches protectively like and arboreal embrace. In Norse and Germanic mythology she is sacred to Freya or Frigga, Goddesses of Love and in the hearts and minds of the people, she was perhaps the most beloved of all trees."
The outpouring of nectar from her flowers provides a feast for gazillions of bees and epitomizes her generous, providing nature. Bees, of course, are sacred to the Great Mother Goddess and the honey they produce is nectar for the Gods.
Linden is the essence of love, peace and compassion
