The name Buqhoor is derived from Arabic and it represents all the wood chips, resins and incense. This is red-colored attar with a pleasant aroma. Its botanical name is Mimusops Elengi. This pure, alcohol-free attar is the preferred choice for meditation and worship. Its unique fragrance helps to awaken one’s senses and in uplifting the soul. It is widely used in spiritual quests by amils because the rich and sweet Buqhoor aroma can attract Moakkils and repel evil spirits.
It is not surprising that Buqhoor finds its mention in Sufi literature and is the preferred choice of the Sufi Saints.
Even in the present times Buqhoor is used during meditation sessions and hadras or standing zikr where incense is an essential part of the ceremonies.
The traditional Buqhoor is usually a blend of main ingredients along with the base of the distilled sap of the rare Agarwood tree. The Agarwood or Oud base imparts a nice balance to the sweet floral aromas that are used to produce the traditional Buqhoor.
