Greater Goods Incense
All of the Incense we sell at Baobab Jungle is from Greater Goods - here is why!
The Mother's (India) Fragrances incense is special!
Incense made with only natural ingredients, hand blended and hand rolled from resins, pure essential oils, floral perfumes and a delicate blend of scented flowers, leaves, charcoal and wood powders. No dipping!
This age-old masala method of making incense avoids the use of chemicals, and creates a light, clean burning incense that creates a minimum of smoke and slowly spreads a gentle aroma. Enjoy the difference!
And what's more, all our products are Fair Trade
and the Mother's India Fragrances come
with a donation to charity.
You can choose from our two ranges of incense:
The Mother's Fragrances are a mild incense, ideally suited for everyday use, and especially created for use in western homes.
The Mother's India Fragrances are a stronger incense, based on traditional Indian incense. Perfect for meditation and contemplation
The Mother's Fragrances Incense is made by hand in Puducherry (formerly Pondicherry), India. And when we say made by hand, we mean it. Every single small action that the making and packaging of incense can be broken down into, is done by hand. From the mixing of the incense paste and the rolling of the incense sticks, to the marbling, folding and glueing of the packaging, everything is done by hand. We employ as many people as we can. The girl in the picture is patiently glueing fans together.
The Mother's Fragrances incense uses only natural ingredients. Why? Because incense is an art, originally dedicated to the Gods, so you have to give it your very best. We make our incense with essential oils, floral essences, herbs, wood powders and scented flowers. The natural ingredients create a light and pure incense that subtly scents and does not cloud the atmosphere.
The Mother's Fragrances Incense is a Fair Trade product. It is made by a company that treats its employees very well indeed, and donates its profits to causes that further peace and prosperity. Nearly 400 people are employed by the company, most of them young women, their wages are excellent, they are treated well, have decent working hours and good working conditions. They can also participate in a bicycle project, a savings scheme, and are all covered by medical insurance. Fair play we say!
