Jivada Incense Origins
Incense first came into my life during the years I lived as a Buddhist monk.
The abbot of our monastery had a particular preference for Jivada's Hanuman Rose.
He believed it had the power to uplift the atmosphere of the monastery and it became a distinctive keynote for the monks, nuns and visitors. Many years later the same holds true and I regularly order on behalf of the monastic community.
After I disrobed I was encouraged by the monks to make this incense more widely available which has been the main inspiration behind this website.
I finally made contact with the family in India that are the makers and discovered that there were many other wonderful scents in their range which I am now slowly adding to the store.
