Introduction to Bakhoor
Bakhoor is basically a woodchip which has been submerged in perfumed oil and mixed with other natural ingredients such as resin, sandalwood essential oils among others depending on an individual’s preference. These scented chips are mostly burned in charcoal or in incense burners to perfume the rich fragrance produced in form of thick smoke. In most cases, this fragrance is used during special occasions such as weddings, love-centered occasions or during relaxing moments. In the Arabian culture, it is a traditional gesture to pass Bukhoor among the invited guests as it was viewed to be a hospitality gesture. Additionally, the guests would feel the warm welcome in that homestead through the fragrance produced. This article will discuss the various uses of this product and the procedure involved while burning it.
