incense and Nepalese incense
differs in several respects from what you might regard as "normal" (Indian
incense / joss sticks.
obvious difference is that (normally) Tibetan or Nepalese incense
sticks don't have a central wooden or bamboo core, and they're
usually much thicker than Indian incense sticks.
composition is also usually quite different - most Tibetan and
Nepalese incense is of a herbal nature, which you can normally see
from the "fibrous" appearance of the sticks.
As well as
being designed as an aid to (Buddhist) meditation, most Tibetan
and Nepalese incense varieties also have medicinal or therapeutic
properties. Many are regarded as helpful in relieving stress -
both physical and mental - and several types are also used to
treat altitude sickness... which is very useful, given the
mountainous nature of Tibet and Nepal!
