Mixture of incense composed of plants and resin, according to a recipe from Antiquity.

- Is burnt on burning coal.
- Proposed in a package of 10 hand-shaped pellets.
- Presented in a sachet, each wafer individually wrapped.
- This product is not food.

Each of the perfumes of Cleopatra's Labo is a historical perfume from Antiquity. It is not an imaginary creation: it is always born first of my research, then carried out by hand to the nearest of the original recipe, that is to say with plants, resins or bark without any addition Of essential oils.

Preparing a Kyphi is a very long process, requiring several days of preparation and several days of ripening during which the product still gains in density and aromas.

The Kyphi was the sacred incense of the ancient Egyptians. But unlike the other incense, its functions were manifold: burnt, it cleansed the air, constituted an offering to the gods, but it could also be consumed as medicine or even flavored wine. The Kyphi was thus a panacea, a product that had sufficiently marked the whole of Antiquity to find the recipe in many places of the ancient world and at different times. However, it is never quite the same recipe that one finds, although one can recognize it to some common ingredients that form the basis of this incense historical and unique.
The kyphi was burnt at nightfall, so it is an incense in the evening.

The Syriac recipe is the last one transmitted under the name of "Kupar" but in which one recognizes the Kyphi. This version dates from the 2nd century AD and was written in Aramaic. "Kupar" is described as a pleasant incense, but also as a drug treating various diseases. It is rather aromatic for a Kyphi with a medicinal vocation, but it is not so much as the first Egyptian recipes.

Of all the perfumes of antiquity, kyphi really has a status apart. Use it to soothe yourself, to harmonize with the evening energies, especially if you feel in tune with the Egyptian culture. If you show devotion to an ancient deity of the Egyptian pantheon, kyphi is just right for you!

- Les senteurs du Labo de Cléopâtre sont toutes naturelles, elles sont donc plus rapidement périssables que d'autres. Elles craignent l'eau, l'humidité et la lumière directe du soleil.
-Conservez-les dans un endroit sec et non explosé à la lumière.
-Les encens se font brûler sur charbon ardent ou système avec bougie, toujours sous votre surveillance, loin de toute substance inflammable et des enfants.
- Les senteurs sont uniquement destinées à l'atmosphère et ne sont pas conçues pour la peau. Le labo de Cléopâtre décline toute responsabilité en cas d'utilisation sur la peau.
