The Nirmalaya Journey
Ringing bells, incredible fragrances wafting out of the windows, and generous offerings to gods are some of the most common scenes in our country. Most of us grew up breathing smoke of black incense that is the most overlooked cause of cancer in India.
In April 2019, Rajeev noticed flowers offered at the Shirdi temple in Maharashtra being recycled into incense. A few months into researching how flowers and other waste from temple offerings can be recycled, we all teamed up and founded Nirmalaya and replicated the same model in Delhi. Today, our factory spans around 3000 yards in Dham Complex, Delhi, we have developed our own recycling process and got our patents from the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research.
We are committed to creating a space full of fragrance where these incenses are kind to your senses and leave a feeling of purity in your home. We are on a mission of ridding our country of religious waste and chemical-laden products. Our women workforce handpick flowers and use time-tested methods to craft incense that’s good for you, and good for the earth.
