Prinknash Blend Incense

The Benedictine Monks of Prinknash Abbey have been blending incense since 1906, when the community was on Caldey Island and are now the oldest major incense blenders in Europe.  The monks developed unique processes for blending the purest Arabian frankincense with precious aromatic oils and spices and created superior recipes for a range of incenses.

The blends now produced at the abbey are made to long established recipes. Consistent excellence ensures that each blend has its regular devoted customers in every continent.

CATHEDRAL, ABBEY AND SANCTUARY
Based on recipes developed by the monks these three blends of pure frankincense and natural oils each have their own distinctive fragrance and aromas. Decades of care in the blending of these incenses have ensured their excellence and constant demand.
 
BASILICA AND PRIORY
Basilica is one of the oldest secret recipes and includes the finest quality frankincense as well as two other incenses and the purest natural oils.  Priory has been produced to enable customers to experience the scent of pure frankincense without the addition of natural oils.

ST MICHAEL, VATICAN AND GUMS OF ARABIA
These old established recipes have been passed on to us by an associate company and consist of blends of different types of incense.
