What is Bakhoor or Bukhoor?
or Bakhoor (Arabic ????) is the
Arabic name given to scented bricks or a blend of natural traditional ingredients, mainly woodchips (Oudh the
Arabic name for Agarwood/Aloeswood) soaked in fragrant oils and mixed with
other natural ingredients (resin, ambergris, musk, sandalwood, essential oils
and others). These scented chips/bricks are burned in charcoal or incense
burners to perfume the house and clothing with the fragrance rich thick smoke. This is used specifically on special occasions
like weddings or on relaxing times or generally just to perfume the house or
store. It is traditional in many Arab countries to pass Bukhoor amongst the
guests in the Majlis (Arabic ????, meaning sitting
room) this is done as a gesture of hospitality.
Bukhoor is usually burned in a traditional incense burner called Mabkhara (it
has other names in other courtiers like Majmor), using charcoal of wood or manufactured
charcoal discs/briquettes. But many people nowadays use electrical incense
burners because they are faster and safer to use. However most still prefer to use the charcoal
because it is s traditional, natural and burns Bakhoor better. With Bakhoor the fragrance is carried to the air by smoke
and adhere to things (last longer) by the properties of Oudh (Agarwood). The longer the Bakhoor kept on a closed glass
jar, the better the scent become.
