"Bukhoor” or “Bakhoor” (Arabic ????) is the Arabic name given to scented bricks or a blend of natural traditional ingredients, mainly woodchips (Oud, Agarwood or Aloeswood) soaked in fragrant oils and mixed with other natural ingredients (Resin, Musk, Ambergris, Sandalwood , flower oils and others).
A Treat For The Senses-
Fragrant Woods enriched with fine frangrant oils.
While we predominantly offer a range of perfumes and fragrances that you can wear while you’re out and about, we also know that you want your home to smell as gorgeous as you do.
That’s why we offer a range of Bakhoor scents for the home.
But you may find yourself wondering why you should go down the Bakhoor route when there are so many other home fragrance options out there.
These are the benefits that make Bakhoor the choice for home fragrances.
Benefit #1 – It’s a Traditional Form of Fragrance
Bakhoor’s use dates back to the days of the prophets in Islamic history. In fact, we can find records of almost every single major prophet using it at some point or another.
Perhaps most importantly, Prophet Mohammed used Bakhoor regularly, especially on Fridays.
The prophet also discusses how Bakhoor will be one of the first fragrances that you will experience upon entering paradise:
“Their combs will be of gold, and their sweat will smell like musk. The aloes-wood will be used in their centres”
In other words, Bakhoor has a very important place in the hearts of those who follow the Islamic face. Some would even argue that using it can take you a little step closer to God.
Benefit #2 – Bakhoor has a Calming Effect
For a more “worldly” benefit, you need only consider the benefits that Bakhoor has when it comes to relieving the feelings of stress and anxiety that we all experience at some points in our lives.
There is plenty of research available to show that Bakhoor directly affects the central nervous system. It’s capable of relieving those feelings of stress and anxiety, which is why it’s so important as a household fragrance.
So, the next time you come back from work feeling completely burned out, use Bakhoor to inspire those feelings of calm that you so desire. You’ll find that it’s particularly effective when used as part of your night-time routine. Using some Bakhoor before bed helps you to prepare your body for sleep, which means you won’t find yourself tossing and turning for hours on end.
Benefit #3 – It Makes You Feel More Creative
Perhaps you have a creative side to you.
Maybe you love sitting down and putting words to paper. Or, you find relaxation in painting whatever comes to mind.
Whatever the case may be, Bakhoor has this amazing ability to get the creative juices flowing. We believe that this again relates to its stress-relieving qualities. Bakhoor can help you to uncloud your mind from all of the stresses of the day. And when you’re not focused so intently on these issues, your mind is free to plumb its creative depths so that you can create truly inspired work.
The Final Word
Those are only three of the benefits that Bakhoor will bring to your home. And as strange as it may sound, we’ve only scratched the surface here.
Perhaps you’re ready to get your hands on some?
