Incense was originally used by the yogis of the East as a way of creating an atmosphere of serenity and harmony for their meditations. These yogis believed that each of our senses could be enlightened leading to higher realms of experience and consciousness. The fragrances used became an important part of their journey of self discovery and inner peace.
Importance of Tradition
Made by monks in the ancient temples of India each stick would be handcrafted with love and care believing that not only the purity of the ingredients mattered but also the state of mind in which it was made.
Just like these Monks we believe that making your incense should be an act of devotion. Using only the best natural essential oils and resins. Every part of the process from the production of the scents, the blending, the rolling of the final stick and even the packaging is done by hand.

Meet The Boss
At the root of Sacred Elephant’s ethos is its owner, Prema-rasa Das. Prema himself was a Gaudiya Vaisnava monk for over 18 years. During this time visiting and living in many temples and yoga ashrams around the world, he experienced first hand the positive effect pure scents have on enlightening our moods and enlivening our consciousness.
Now living in Wales and teaching the Bhakti Yoga process he learnt as a monk. He’s often found meditating and is generally a bit too chilled out to be a boss.
