This ancient fragrance denotes the nutty and coniferous aroma of the symbolic cypress tree.

In the Christian tradition, the cypress tree is a symbol of death, life, and resurrection, and signifies the heavens calling. With its column-like shape that reaches toward the heavens, the Cypress has a deep-rooted relationship with the heavenly realm and divine light. The evergreen leaves have become a symbol of resurrection and new life.

Over the centuries, the monastics of Mt. Athos have perfected the art of incense making. As a result, this high-quality Athonite incense burns to a powder and does not melt and suffocate charcoal. A single rock will burn evenly, and slowly, eliminating the necessity to constantly refresh your home or church censor.
