Happy Hari’s Nag Champa Gold!! Deluxe traditional natural temple grade incense sticks (£1.20 a packet, or ANY 6 FOR £6)
Come and Take The Nag Champa Taste Challenge –
Well we think so, and this is mainly because Nag Champa GOLD!! is still made using halmaddi resin, which is what gives Nag Champa its true rich aroma. Nowadays most major manufacturers are using less and less of this expensive ingredient or have stopped altogether often to the detriment of their product. We think our sticks smell more like the original blue box Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa from the 1990’s than the present day offering from the same company, and so too do many others.
