Notes of: warm amber, sweet musk, and rich oud.
Named in honor of my late mother, the original Zuleika Bukhoor Incense Blend was sourced by her in the old city of Sana’a, just days before she made her final transition from this world. It was then carefully handcrafted by my older sister in Yemen, Asnaa, who followed my mother’s recipe.
Bukhoor is the Arabic name for a blend of fragrance oils, spices, and other natural ingredients specially chosen for their scent. When burned over charcoal, it emits an aromatic smoke. For centuries bukhoor has served as an ambiance for therapy, meditation, special occasions, and welcoming guests.
Size: 50 grams
How to use: After lighting charcoal with a flame, carefully place a piece of incense on top. For a slower, cleaner burn, place a mica plate on the charcoal before adding bakhoor.
Each piece will burn for 4 - 6 mins. The aromatic scent fills the space for hours after vary by size of the space.
Giving: A portion of our proceeds from this special batch will serve as the seed funding to continue mama’s legacy: supporting women in Yemen in their quest to become entrepreneurs.
WARNING: Do not allow it to burn unsupervised. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid putting in drafty areas or near any flammable materials. Do not directly inhale smoke.
Love this brand and smell!
The Zuleika Bukhoor is a unique blend that smells heavenly. The fragrance is so beautiful that it gave my house a wonderful feeling of coziness
I appreciate how quickly my bukhoor arrived, the design of the box and handwritten note that came with it and that there were little free samples included! The Zuleikha bukhoor is super fragrant with the perfect mix of sweetness and muskiness that fills up the room.
Just received our amazingly beautiful Zuleika bakhoor today. Simply heavenly! The best smelling bakhoor made with love and care. Burning just a small piece has spread the smell throughout our house. The combination of amber, oud and jasmine in this bakhoor is perfection. Many thanks to the Mennas team for sharing your family gift with the rest of us.
Unlike anything. Beautiful packaging. Great gift for family and friends. The home smells like serenity and peace. Thank you MENNAS Team!
