10 outdoor scented incense sticks

These incense sticks are made in South India, where producers make a thick paste like mixture which includes wood powder, adhesive, herbs, Camphor. Then they put this mixture in a mould along with the bamboo stick. The mould process takes a day to set the mixture, then the next day, they dip the stick in perfume to get the desired scent.
