On Mount Athos and the Holy Skete of Saint John the Baptist monk’s handiwork is the production of high quality incense.
How is the handmade aromatic incense made?
Incense production is particularly demanding since incense passes through several stages before reaching its final form; stages in which monks intervention is essential.
The rubbing of raw material, the molding, cutting and placement of incense in boxes, all works require human presence.
Monks proceed to these tasks with extreme care since it is necessary for the incense to be correct even in its shape! In this way, the Athonite Elders who are responsible for this handiwork manufacture superior quality – aromatic incense.
They make sure that raw material is clean without impurities something that plays a pivotal role in the burning of incense. Moreover, they thoroughly investigate to find the most appropriate fragrances that are available exclusively via the Mount Athos product exhibition!
What does incense symbolize?
The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God’s people, goes up before God from the angel’s hand.
Exactly like the frankincense meets the lit charcoal and does not stay there, but after being heated, it climbs upwards and spreads a magnificent scent!
The incense offering is known from the Old Testament. It was a divine commandment. This habit has been later transferred to the Christian worship.
The high quality handmade monastic Incense of the Holy Skete of Iviron, has a strong fragrance that lasts during combustion.
