Darkside Smoke Shop Chico has Nag Champa the most popular selling incense in the world. 15g, 40g and also 250g packages. It is hand made in India from the Champa Flower.
Nag Champa is a fragrance of Indian origin, based on a combination of magnolia (champaca or champak) and sandalwood, or frangipani (plumeria) and sandalwood. Though when frangipani is used, the name is usually just “Champa“, without the “Nag“. It is a popular and recognizable incense fragrance throughout the world.
A number of flower species in India are champa or champak:
- Magnolia champaca, formerly classified as Michelia champaca (swarna champa or yellow champa)
- Plumeria rubra and Plumeria acutifolia (frangipani)
- Mesua ferrea (nagkeshar or nagchampa)
Also Of these Magnolia champaca is used to prepare the Nag Champa scent, while Plumeria Also Mesua ferrea—may be used for scents termed Champa and sometimes Nag Champa.
Champa perfume ingredients vary with the manufacturer, though generally they include sandalwood and magnolia, which, as the plant is related to star anise, gives the scent a little spice. Other ingredients will depend on the finished product. Perfume-dipped incenses and soaps would use essential oils or scents, while masala incenses would use finely ground fragrant ingredients as well as essential oils.
