Lose yourself in the timeless exotic scent of Indian incense with our Nag Champa fragrance oil! The scent belongs to a family of Indian incenses known as champas, which includes fragrances similar to champa—or plumeria—flowers. Nag champa, which is perhaps the most popular, ties in the scent of cannonball tree (Couroupita guianensis) flowers—commonly called naga, which means “serpent” in Sanskrit—with notes of sandalwood and frankincense. If you love bold, earthy scents such as patchouli, dragon’s blood, sandalwood, and amber, you’re going to fall in love with our Nag Champa!

History of Nag Champa
In the United States, Nag Champa is closely related to hippie counterculture and was a significant scent beloved in the 1960’s and 70’s. However, nag champa has been treasured by the people of India for generations before it made its way to the Americas. It is traditionally used to create incense, which is burned during meditations and can usually be found in temples. Nag champa is so significant in Indian culture that the cannonball tree from which it’s earned its name is considered sacred to Hindu people.
