The flowers of the butterfly pea plant are quite a sight to behold. Vibrant blue or violet-hued, the little blossoms have a bright yellow slash at their centres and delicate petals that resemble the shape of female genitalia, hence its botanic name Clitoria Ternatea. Butterfly Pea has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as a brain booster, antidepresant and calmative agent.
Our Butterfly Pea Incense is hand rolled by our lovely small scale fair trade producers in Northern Thailand. They have a large sunny garden where they grow their own Butterfly Pea Flowers, they harvest the flowers, dry them in the sun and then roll them into a fine powder. They then get a fine stick of bamboo which they roll in a little natural gum to make it sticky before rolling it in the Butterfly Pea powder.Because our incense is entirely natural you get a beautiful scent unlike many of the commercial incenses which merely spray their incense sticks with perfume which smells great in the packet but not so good when it burns!Our Butterfly Pea incense comes in a pack containing 8 high quality incense sticks, each stick measures 11 inches / 28 cm and will burn for 20 - 25 mins in a still room.
