F.A.Q

What is a Bakhoor?
If you鈥檝e ever visited a middle-eastern country, you may have gotten a whiff of a strong scent that is used as incense in almost every Arab household. This is called 鈥渂akhoor鈥 or 鈥渂akhour鈥 which are wood chips soaked in scented oils. They used a myriad of different tree barks and scents to create several types of bakhoors, each having its unique way of burning and filling up an empty space with perfume.
How are Bakhoors made?
They used a myriad of different tree barks and scents to create several types of bakhoors, each having its unique way of burning and filling up an empty space with perfume. They didn鈥檛 restrict themselves to the resources they found in their land - since trade routes had been established with current-day Asia and Africa, they imported herbs, spices, aromatic plants and different types of woods.
What is the significance of Bakhoors?
Ultimately, bakhoor was significant as it pointed to the need for luxury in one鈥檚 daily life, and that it made one鈥檚 monotonous day complete. Comfort was a necessary aspect and these wonderfully scented wood chips gave one of the greatest civilizations the same feeling.
