This frangipani leaf incense holder is handmade in Thailand; made from ceramic it has a lovely blue crackled glass effect.
Ideal for use with Japanese size incense sticks, but can also be used with longer size incense such as Indian or American Made. The picture displays this used with Indian Nag Champa incense - it is slightly longer than the holder itself, but will catch the incense if properly aligned.
To use, simply place an incense stick into the small hole at one end, align the length above the main part of the incense holder. Then as the stick burns and ash is formed, it will simply drop onto the holder and the ash can then be tipped away after use.
Size of Incense Holder: Total length is approximately 14cm, height 1.5cm and width (at the widest point) is 4cm.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Truth, peace, wisdom
Colours can affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states, both consciously and unconsciously. We can use colours to help us feel better, to inject an element of vitality into our life, or to calm strong feelings and promote a sense of peace and relaxation.
The colour blue is typically associated with a range of emotions and states of being including: calmness, purity, truth, wisdom, depression and peace. Different people perceive colours in different ways, so you may have other associations, which are equally valid.
In Buddhism blue is linked to wisdom, and in Hebrew traditions it's associated with mercy. Both Christ, and the Virgin Mary, have both been depicted wearing shades of blue, representing their detachment from worldly goods, materialism and possessions. Blue is the colour of the sky and as such is associated with a sense of peace, freedom and calmness.
The ancient Egyptians regarded blue as being the colour of truth, and the images painted on the walls of their tombs were on a sky-blue background. It's also a colour that's been linked to scores of gods, particularly sky gods, such as the Egyptian Amun, the Greek Zeus, Roman Jupiter, the Hindu Indra, Vishnu and his incarnation, Krishna (who was said to have blue skin).
When people are feeling low in spirits or depressed they're often said to be, "feeling blue." It's thought this phrase may stem from the twilight blues songs sung by African slaves whilst being held captive in North America.
In the case of the chakras, blue represents the throat chakra.

Reviews - rated 5/5 based on customer reviews5 out of 5 By Annie, WarwickshireThe Frangipani Leaf incense holder is the best I have ever come across and over the years I have bought many. No more collecting of fine grey ash that seemed to get everywhere, it stays put in the holder and it doesn't matter which size of incense stick I use. Great product!
