Egyptian Kyphi

My kyphi is handmade by me in my kitchen. I stand over a large copper pot for ten days, yes...ten days to make one batch, stirring and adding each ingredient. I love making it and the smell fills home, which is divine. I completely understand why the priesthood offered this scared incense up to the gods and goddesses every evening. 

Please only use indirect heat to enjoy your kyphi. I suggest an incense burner that uses charcoal bricks. With each purchase I will provide you with aluminum foil squares to place over the hot bricks, and then place a ball of kyphi on top of the aluminum.

My kyphi does not smoke like traditional incense, instead only small wisps of smoke escape as it slightly melts and the aroma fills the room. It smells of herbs, resins, wine and honey. It's glorious!
