Jaju Poi incense is crafted by the famous Bhutanese factory “Nado Poizokhang” – the leading incense maker in Bhutan. “Nado” products are famous for the purity of the ingredients used as well as the careful preparation process. It is one of the oldest and the largest hand-made incense manufacturers in Bhutan.
Many of the 108 ingredients used to make this incense grow at more than 4000meters altitude in the Himalayas. Collecting is undertaken by yak herders as they move their herds up and down the mountains searching for summer and winter pastures as well as families who live permanently high in the remote Himalayas.
