Banyen's Description: 

Shanthimalai Incense, also known as Red Nag Champa, is handmade by village women at the foot of the sacred mountain Arunachala in Tamil Nadu, India. Made with the finest natural ingredients it sets new standards for quality and purity. A highly favoured champa incense, it has a rich and deep nag champa note.

Through use of the incense, the tranquil atmosphere of sacred Arunachala is conveyed, uplifting the mind and transforming everyday experiences.

Production of this incense offers employment for widows, abandoned mothers, and physically handicapped or unmarried women who otherwise would have no means of earning an income. A large percentage of the profits from sales of the incense contributes to health care, education, and vocational training for local villagers through Shanthimalai Trust, founded in 1985. Though rich in tradition, the region is outwardly impoverished due to disrupted monsoon patterns and an economy dependent on rice farming. All of the Trust's programs are developed in collaboration with the villagers it serves. A beautiful reciprocal working relationship has now been established with 40 villages.
