Erzgebirge is not just world-famous for its handmade wooden crafts: it’s also known for producing other handcrafted products like incense cones and candles.
German incense cones are made with flammable materials that include potato flour as a binder, resin from the frankincense tree, sandalwood, and charcoal, which are mashed together to create a dough and then shaped into a cone. Our Original Crottendorfer incense cones are made with all-natural ingredients and keep with the traditions of the original artisans in the Ore Mountains.
Original Crottendorfer tests their incense cones in various smokers to ensure that each is safe for your family and home.
The History of Crottendorfer Incense Cones
These compact incense smokers, known as “Räucherkerze” in German, originate from the Ore Mountains in the small village of Crottendorf. Incense cones are another handmade speciality craft that started in the Erzgebirge region of Germany in the 18th century.
Not only do incense cones bring delicious Christmas fragrances into the home, traditionally, but these were also used to ward off insects. The original scents were frankincense, cinnamon, and pine, but now you can find incense candles in various lovely fragrances that are appealing all year round.
Find a traditional German handcrafted wooden smoker to go along with your incense cones. Your purchase also helps support the continued craftsmanship of handmade crafts in the Ore Mountains.
