The “Yellow” Nado incense is based on a formula revealed by Terton Minling Trichen from the famous Mindroling Monastery. It is appreciated by yogis for its help in enhancing Dharma practice and for its fine aromatic quality.

About the producer:
Nado Poizokhang is the oldest and the largest hand-made incense sticks manufacturer in Bhutan. It was a government-owned unit until the early 1990s. When the Royal Government started privatising organisations, the unit started to commercialise its products. This family business is now providing employment for 15 poor, uneducated, and underprivileged people. They work closely with the Community Based Sustainable Management of Medicinal Plants Project that educates collectors on the sustainable collection and cultivation of the natural products that they use.
