Loban - Extracted from the resin of the Loban tree, the fragrance purifies the air and enables meditation and calms your mind. Ever wondered where those hundreds of thousands of kilos (Nearly 8 tonnes actually) of flowers end up from the temples or after a function or a dignitary visiting? They end up dumped into water bodies and landfills or just tossed on the roadside to rot or worse still get ingested by the marine life which are detrimental to their survival. Esscent by Arpan is a very enterprising organisation created by a very young and environmentally conscious team that they are not witness to this catastrophe. This line of premium incense sticks are hand rolled and is 100% free of charcoal and uses these waste flowers and essential oils and a dash of love as they say, to create these very soothing and calming fragrances. It also ensures therefore that the air is kept clean and does not trigger allergies. These are hand-rolled by a group of differently-abled people. And packaged by underprivileged women thereby providing them livelihood and independence. These luxury incense sticks are available in 6 divine fragrances- Lavender, Rose, Lemongrass, Loban, Lily and Jasmine and come in a box of 40 sticks with a holder.
