Premium Quality LAHA: This is an extra special laha from the layer of tree tissue in between the bark and the layers of the tree. Hand cleaned, piece by piece. Extraordinary.

Laha and Dar can be used just like Makko. For 'die-hard' Makko users, a mix of Laha or Dar and Makko can stretch the Makko, actually making it less expensive.

Just like Makko, Laha and Dar have water soluble adhesive properties (for use in making incense sticks and cones), with an almost odorless characteristic that seems to be entirely lost when mixed and burned with other ingredients, and the ability to burn smoothly and evenly.

Our Laha and Dar is 'baby powder' fine; perfect for blending into your favorite incense recipe or using it to burn ingredients, as in an 'incense trail'.

Natural plant-based binders: Mucilaginous material, which can be derived from many botanical sources, is mixed with fragrant materials and water. The mucilage from the wet binding powder holds the fragrant material together while the cellulose in the powder combusts to form a stable ember when lit. The dry binding powder usually comprises about 10% of the dry weight in the finished incense. Makko (抹香・末香 incense powder), made from the bark of the tabu-no-ki tree (Machilus thunbergii) (Jpn. 椨の木; たぶのき), is perhaps the best known source of natural plant-based binder. In India a resin based binder called Jigit is used. In Nepal, Tibet, and other East Asian countries a bark based powder called Laha or Dar is used.
