Abarakku is the latest natural and botanical incense I've created. It's name means 'steward of the temple' in ancient Sumerian (Abyssinian?) -- anyway, some really old, dead language. This incense began as an homage to myrrh and rose petals, then morphed into something a bit louder with the addition of sandalwood and jasmine grandiflorum. Since I don't have a proper studio anymore, and it's been raining off and on for a few weeks, the incense needed a nice, warm place to dry, so I settled for a well-ventilated closet -- in my bedroom. I fall asleep to the scent of mystery. In a week or so, both the cones and the sticks created with the incense paste will be ready for sale.
