My latest addiction......
So some of the comments I have gotten have got me on the topic of Bakhhor....My latest addiction. There are two actually. Bakhoor and Oud.
Bakhoor and Oud are an Arabic Incence. You place it on hot charcoal and the smoke fills the room with an AMAZING smell! I light it all the time!! Love it and cant get enough of it. My husband "feeds" my addiction by bringing me fresh supplies offten. When he goes to the UAE for business he always brings back a ton....he found a place there that sells it cheap.
We use it when guests come to the house and I will light it when we are getting ready to go out. My husband will usually stand over it with his Thobe so the smoke will get into the fabric. I know of some women that will put the smoke in their hair after they shower. When we have big Sheiks or Shari'a Board memebers at work, we will like Oud to give the office that "Arabic" feel.
