Tibetan incense is a kind of incense with Tibetan characteristics. It is made from more than 30 kinds of precious natural medicinal materials, such as sandalwood, agarwood, saffron, and musk. Because of its pleasant aroma and its ability to prevent diseases, refresh the brain, and enhance immunity, the incense is favored by more and more modern urbanites.

Nyemo County in Lhasa is a famous Tibetan incense production site. Almost every household makes Tibetan incense, and the Tibetan incense industry has become a wealth-making industry alongside local agriculture and animal husbandry.

Now, the county’s Tibetan Incense Research and Development Center has developed environmentally friendly Tibetan incense as well as medicinal Tibetan incense. In 2008, Nyemo Tibetan Incense was included in China’s National Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
