Perfume comes from the Latin word “per fumus” meaning through smoke. Indeed history of perfumery begins with scents which came from burned materials such as resins or plants. Fumigation is well known from ancient civilisations as a perfume process and in the islamic tradition, it is reported that when Ibn Umar wanted fumigation he got it from aloeswood without mixing anything with it, or he put camphor along with aloeswood and then said: This is how Allah’s Messenger ( صلی الله علیه وسلم ) fumigated.
You need an incense burner where you will put an hot coal, for me I love the somali dabqaad, and you will just have to put your favorite incense on it, it can be agarwood, luban or frankincense, myrrh, or any traditional bakhoor. Then perfume yourself or clothes with the smoke. You can use an electric burner or even a stick incense, but result will be the best in the most traditional way in my opinion.
A great fumigation combo can be made by using some fine agarwood with a beautiful franckincense from Oman. The resin will produce heavy smoke perfumed by a subtle woody scent. And of course you will find everything in our shop.
