The sample option is for three Kyphi Incense Pearls.

The full sized option is the gift box and contents shown in the photos. With that, you will receive half an ounce, which equates to at least ten Kyphi Incense Pearls.

"Kyphi" is the Greek version of the Egyptian word "Kp-t" ["Kapet"], most probably meaning incense, temple incense or offering.

This all natural incense is based on what is known of the Ancient Egyptian [ Kyphi / Kapat ] recipe dedicated to The Sun God Ra.

The wet ingredients for this batch of Kyphi Incense include organic raisins and dates, raw local honey and rare real Blue Lotus essential oil soaked in red wine.

After aging, I added the mixture of powdered ingredients for this batch. Oman Hougari Royal as well as Black Frankincense. Mysore Sandalwood powder meticulously collected as a byproduct of the Artists carving it. Storax Bark. Myrrh from Kenya, Red Cedarwood, Italian Juniper Berries, Galangal & Orris Roots, Saigon Cinnamon, Gold Seal & Medieval Dragon's Blood and a few secrets.

After aging a bit more, I formed all into pieces and kneaded in a dusting of my signature for this batch. Powdered precious woods, dried roots and petals and resins - agarwood, vetiver, rose, and more black frankincense, dragon's blood and orris root.

Each piece was then given a gold beauty treatment. The entire process began on The New Moon of September 2021 and was completed on The New Moon of October 2021. Some was sold at that time and the rest put away to age for a year on the Winter Solstice of 2021.

My favorite way to use this is in an electric incense heater. I get a metal cupcake liner, pour in a bit of olive oil and a small pearl of this Kyphi and set the heat to medium. I get multiple uses out of each pearl using this method. And, of course, with charcoals. I am a fan of bamboo and coconut charcoals because they do not interfere with the fragrance. I do think that direct heat makes for a lessened overall experience with this Kyphi of mine, however, so please consider covering your coals with ash.

Meticulously prepared in small batches by me, an ordained Priestess of Mendes. Kyphi/Kapat was traditionally created by The Priesthood.

I also make an all natural botanical Kyphi Perfume. Available here.

I'm sure that Ra at His setting would approve...and so will you.

Several recipes for Kyphi have come down to us from ancient Egypt; each is distinctive. I'm not sure which one is the basis for this formulation, but it has been very well honored and served. I tried using both an electric incense heater and incense charcoals, and I agree with Sara and Dylan that the using the former provides the best results, though it smells great on charcoal, too, and the smoke is quite dramatic. The fragrance is about the most complicated I've ever experienced--it's at once sweet, thick, lush, narcotic, inspiring, and sedating, with notes and nuances aplenty. Buy some already! And their Kyphi Oil is no less entrancing, so maybe buy some of that, too.
