Rose rope incense is a symbol of love and purity. It has a soothing effect on the emotions, particularly depression, grief, and resentment. This is a traditional Tibetan rope incense, made by twisting the powder incense into Nepali rice paper by hand. This is a very ancient method of making incense. Each package contains about 45 sticks, each about 3.5 inches long. They burn for about 30 minutes each.
