Locally harvested natural scented incense / 25g
Fennel is a flowering perennial of the Apiaceae genus with a sweet, resinous scent that is often confused with aniseed. Traditionally used as an insect repellent, it is also a component of Royal Wedding bouquets and is used in perfumery and as a food ingredient. In Europe, it was much used in a mixture called gruit as a flavouring for beer from the Middle Ages to the 16th century, but has fallen into disuse after hops became more widely available.
How to Use: Light the end of the cone and burn for around 15 seconds blowing the ember until red hot, place in the heart of your home in either a hallway or a landing to allow the fragrant smoke to disperse. Use the lid or a heat proof surface to burn each cone on. Burning time: 15 min approx. Scent longevity: 2-4 hours (in a medium size room)
