What Do The Grateful Dead & Bob Dylan Have In Common?

What do the the Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan have in common – besides great music? Here's a little Hippy Dippy Trippy trivia - both of these musical legends burned Nag Champa incense backstage and on stage during their concerts.

Nag Champa incense has been around for decades, and there's good reason; not only is the incense of exceptional quality, it is the perfect accompaniment to creating meditative and sacred spaces.

It is India's most popular high grade incense and is known worldwide. It is made from highly fragrant rare gums, resins, powders and has a high concentration of pure Mysore Sandalwood Oil. Originating from the Champa flower, Champa incenses contain a natural ingredient indigenous to India called "halmaddi", which is a semi-liquid resin taken from the Ailanthus Malabarica tree. This is what gives Nag Champa its characteristic grey color. Halmaddi is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture from the air. This can cause Nag Champa incenses to have a wet feeling to them.

These natural ingredients are blended to perfection to create a soothing aroma. This aromatic incense with its sweet, yet earthy fragrance is perfect for enhancing any mood or environment.   Gently fragrant and long lasting, the scent will lightly linger in your room for hours. Many burn Nag Champa to stimulate spirituality and meditation.

The original Satya Sai Baba brand Nag Champa incense, is manufactured by Srinivas Sugandalay and imported from India. Nag Champa is a hand-rolled and an incense stick can burn for about 45 minutes.

Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa comes in a variety of sizes and formats. The traditional incense sticks are the most common but it also comes in Dhoop Sticks, Regular & Backflow Cones and is also available in a self lighting powder.
