Product Description

Musk seeds (whole) - Abelmoschus moschatus from India. These seeds have a wonderful sweet, flowery, heavy fragrance quite similar to that of musk. They are also known as Ambrette seeds or Rose mallow seeds.

Since musk deer are an endangered species we encourage you to avoid procuring true musk or musk oil and try using these seeds instead. They add a wonderful musk-like aroma to any incense mixture.
