Kyphi is an ancient Egyptian incense which is considered to be the first perfume ever created. The elaborate and complex recipe for Kyphi was found on the walls of Egyptian temples and called for 16 distinctive ingredients. In the temples, Kyphi was burnt at dusk or early evening to prepare for the evening rituals and for dream work. Kyphi was soaked in wine and consumed as medicine, and was burnt by Egyptian nobles to as a personal fragrance by means of smoke (which would cling to hair and clothes), and were burnt in the evening to banish the worries of the day and invite good dreams.
Our kyphi is a modern interpretation of the original Egyptian Kyphi, using 16 precious ingredients that are ground separately, then compounded together in a mixture of organic resins, local wine and wild honey. This not only binds together the ingredients but also creates an alchemical process that truly transforms the aroma of the incense and creates a heavenly smoke when burnt on a charcoal. It can also be used by placing on an aromatherapy diffuser (place on a piece of aluminum foil to prevent it from sticking to your diffuser).
