I've previously purchased my Mother's incense from the Vedanta Society, but they no longer carry it. I found this retailer online and took a chance. The turnaround time was excellent -- I received my package within two or three days of my order. That's really saying something, with the postal service as they've been lately (I'm used to waiting days and days for mail). They also included some samples of other incense products, which was a nice touch. I miss the tubes, though, since they fit in my Cornbelly Cup (from Utah's Corn Maze South of Salt Lake City) better, but I'll figure it out eventually. The weight of the package was exactly the same as the old tubes, and the price was the same. I actually started buying Amber Kastur when it was wrapped in accounting paper. So, yup, packaging changes over time, eh?
