Dhe-Tsang Sacred Mountains Incense
- CAD: $17.50
This enjoyable and lovely incense is mild with many subtle overtones and no harshness or muskiness.
An important ingredient of Sacred Mountains Incense is ‘gadan kyenba’, a mint-like herb hand-picked from the three sacred mountains in the Gelug tradition: Wangbur Mountain, Mount Wutai and Taer Monastery in Huangzhong County, said to be the birthplace of Tsongkhapa (1357-1419, founder of the Gelug sect).
Dhe-Tsang Monastery was built in 1414 by Tsako Ngawang Drakpa, a heart disciple of the great master Je Tsong Khapa. The name literally means ‘fulfillment’ or ‘completion’. (courtesy b-i-a.net)

I love this incense for its medicinal and psychoactive properties.
It seems to be a straight up and down Artemesia based incense
without much else added. I confess, I love Wormwood, and associated
Artemesia type herbs, so this won’t appeal to everyone, but if you like
the bitter, minty, refreshing smell of Wormwood, this is for you. I have found
it to open my airways, dramatically, no other incense does that, except maybe
for Highland, (not as profoundly as Sacred Mountains).
It goes without saying, that , the thujone content is a mild relaxing stimulant.
Give it a try!
