KURSK ORTHODOX CHURCH INCENSEA GRACEFUL FRAGRANCE DEDICATED TO THE KURSK ICON OF THE THEOTOKOS

#: 12611

Fresh citrus and sweet berries join together with ginger, neroli, moss, cedar and olibanum to create this graceful fragrance dedicated to the Kursk icon of the Theotokos.

The incense we offer is manufactured in strict accordance with the ancient Athonite tradition by Orthodox monastics. It starts with the dried sap of the frankincense tree. The golden yellow lumps of frankincense are ground into a powder and mixed with fragrant oils. This mixture is then rolled by hand and cut into small pieces. To prevent the incense pieces from sticking together, it is dusted with powdered, all-natural, purified clay. Before the incense is ready for use in worship, it must cure for a period of time in a climate controlled environment.

Because this work is part of a monastic obedience and because of the spiritual significance of incense in Orthodox worship, the monastics pray the Jesus prayer continually during this work.
