Bakhoor / Bakhour is the Omani name for a mixture of natural traditional ingredients that are offered as smoked products. We source the Bakhoor blends directly from Oman. This typical incense mixture from Arabia is sold on the Souq of Muscat or Salalah.
Bakhoor mostly consists of chips of oud, the Arabic name for agarwood. Oud and other raw materials are soaked in fragrant oils with other natural ingredients or popular fragrances such as sandalwood, musk or rose oil. The ingredients of Bakhoor and the weighting of the ingredients are considered the secret of the producer (bakhoor is mostly made and sold by women). Our producer does not tell us which ingredients are in the mixtures. She has only emphasized several times that these are exclusively natural products.
Bakhoor is offered in various forms: predominantly as dark, slightly oily mixtures, but also in the form of tablets or as pressed pieces. Our Bakhoor mixes from Dhofar (Oman) are particularly popular in the Arab world. Bakhoor is smoked on charcoal (sometimes together with incense). We therefore offer the 8 different mixtures in small quantities at attractive prices so that you can find out your mixture. We are happy if you help us to “smell” the content with us.
We also import henna directly from Oman, which is mainly used by women to paint their hands.
We have the highest quality rose frankincense and agarwood frankincense as pure natural products. We have dusted our sorted out best frankincense from Oman (smaller light pieces without bark) with natural rose oil or eaglewood oil several times - an incomparable quality.
