SAROV ORTHODOX CHURCH INCENSE A SWEET AND WARM FRAGRANCE DEDICATED TO ST. SERAPHIM OF SAROV

#: 12635

Garden green with subtle hints of geranium, lily and wild berry, rounded out with neroli, cinnamon & clove, warm vanilla, and galbanum. A sweet and warm fragrance imported from Greece that we have dedicated to the great saint of Russia, Seraphim of Sarov.

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.
