Uunsi (Incense chunks ) 1.8 OZ

Top:  Indian Oud , Bergamot
Heart: Amber, Cashmeran
Base: Saffron, Musk


Hoyo in Somali means mother, and Uunsi means fragrant incense that is traditionally used to perfume homes during special occasions.

The highly sought after ancient East African recipe was handed down to me from my beautiful Somali mother, and it was handed down to her from her grandmother, in a tradition that goes back to thousands of years.

The main ingredients in this rich and ancient aroma are Pure Indian Oud, Amber, sugar, and Musk mixed with essential oils and left to dry then broken into chunks, soaked in our signature perfume blend, and then rolled in oud and musk powder.

We use natural ingredients in the making of our incense. We don't use any ingredients that contain saltpeter.


Place a piece of your Uunsi on ash-covered charcoal in your Burner, not on direct coal. In an unventilated room, the aroma of the Uunsi can spread to up to 400 square feet. And last up to three days in your space.

 Safety tips:

  • Always store our premium Incense in a cool, dry place.
  • Don't place burning incense near anything flammable.
  • Place your incense on a sturdy, stable, heat-resistant surface.
  • Never leave burning incense unattended.
  • Make sure to extinguish the incense before leaving the room.

Heavenly fragrance

I can’t believe that I never heard of the Somali Uunsi before. I knew bakhoor from my trips to the middle East but Uunsi is a different entity in itself. Very fragrant and long lasting. Hands down my favourite incense of all time.


I buy this uunsi every month, The fragrance is calming and relaxing, a little bit goes a long way.

Long lasting and smells great

These are the most wonderful smelling things I’ve ever bought! They last for a long time and give off a pleasant scent that is not overpowering. The perfect addition to my meditation room. I highly recommend it. I will be buying more!

Woody and pleasant

Very pleasant fragrance and not overwhelming like many types of incense. I put a few chunks on a burning tea light and the smell is wonderful. Love that a little bit goes a long way.

Great incense

I love trying different kinds of incense and use it in traditional community gatherings. This incense by far is the best I've ever tried. It made my home smell really good. My friends were so impressed that they ordered the same day.
