Bakhoor or Bukhoor?

Bukhoor or Bakhoor is the Arabic name given to scented bricks or a blend of natural traditional ingredients, mainly woodchips (Oudh the Arabic name for Agarwood/Aloeswood) soaked in fragrant oils and mixed with other natural ingredients (resin, ambergris, musk, sandalwood, essential oils and others).

These scented chips/bricks are burned in charcoal or incense burners to perfume the house and clothing with the fragrance rich thick smoke.

This is used specifically on special occasions like weddings or on relaxing times or generally just to perfume the house or store. It is traditional in many Arab countries to pass Bukhoor amongst the guests in the Majlis (sitting room) this is done as a gesture of hospitality.

Direction On How To Burn Bakhoor

The Bukhoor is usually burned in a traditional incense burner called Mabkhara (it has other names in other courtiers like Majmor), using charcoal of wood or manufactured charcoal discs/briquettes. But many people nowadays use electrical incense burners because they are faster and safer to use. However most still prefer to use the charcoal because it is s traditional, natural and burns Bakhoor better.

Take a piece of coal and heat a corner of it with a small flame (lighter/cooker), for about 60 seconds until it becomes red hot. Be very careful not to burn yourself (handle with metal tongs or similar instrument).

Do not let hot coal touch skin. Place hot piece of coal in incense burner or suitable metal dish. Wait for 2 minutes, then sprinkle small amount of Bakhoor Incense onto hot coal. Sit back as beautiful fragrance fills the room and the whole house.

With Bakhoor the fragrance is carried to the air by smoke and adhere to things (last longer) by the properties of Oudh (Agarwood). The longer the Bakhoor kept on a closed glass jar, the better the scent become.

The fragrance on the bakhoor weaves together an aromatic bouquet of raw materials such as sandalwood, frankincense and mixture of the essence of Oudh, Sandlewood, Amber, Rose etc. The fragrance of the Bakhoor is truly heavenly.

Caution: Please be careful around children as coal gets extremely hot.
