Named in honor of my late mother, the ingredients of the original Zuleika Bukhoor Incense Blend were 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, results 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.
So glad I was able to get a hold of the last batch of Zuleika. Such a wonderful scent! I think I am addicted, or at least getting close, to using just before prayer.
This has been the only order that I've placed thus far with Mennas, a bukhoor for my mother who has used buhkoor from Aden and Khaleeg for the past 40 years and this may be her favorite! Such a rich, beautiful scent! We'll definitely be ordering more, thank you!
I gifted these to friends for different occasions and they were VERY happy. Couldn’t have thought of a better gift to share with the ones I love! The thought and love that was put into each order and packaging. Great customer service too!
It rare to find a product that is so unique in presentation and feeling! I feel
