The value of an incense stick is gauged through the experience it delivers. Our signature, charcoal-free range relies on unadulterated and wholesome elements to create a soul-ştirring atmosphere.
HMS began its journey as a small workshop in Poona's old local market. Since 1860, we have diligently passed down the secret recipes of traditional incense stick-making, hoping to revitalise and further India’s cultural wisdom.
In the beginning, artisans hand-blend the secret assortment to form a dough.
The dough is gently hand-rolled onto bamboo sticks. We use bamboo instead of wood, as the bamboo stalk can regrow faster.
The sticks are sun-dried to keep the fragrance intact.
Finally, only the most immaculate incense sticks are selected and packaged skillfully to preserve the freshness and aroma.
