Vigil oils are back sooner than expected, many new products on our Icon Corner page, and many other things to share with you. Please scroll down for all our latest news or click here: News.
Last year, in 2012, Desert Fathers Incense gave away, for free, (yes, FREE) over 1500 packets of Orthodox Christian incense to those who could not afford them, from the USA to Europe, to Africa, to Asia. Won't you browse our site to see how you can help us? Our goal is to give away 1,000,000 packets all over the world, bringing light, peace and hope to people who need it.
Please read these announcements! They are very important for our customers to know and understand.
February 7, 2013We have many wonderful things in store for our customers this year!Very soon, we will be offering some unique gift items on our "Icon Corner Stuff" page, including Christian/Celtic themed tapestries that can be used in icon corners, bedspreads, even curtains. Other new items include a few new types of burners, because some that we have carried in the past are no longer obtainable. Columbina's Spiritual First Aid Kits are coming back with three new choices! No more, "one size fits all". We are offering kits for the Converts, the Eastern Orthodox and the Coptic/Ethiopian Orthodox, all tailor-made for the individual's needs.
We regret price increases, but the time has come and after "doing the math", I have had to raise sticks and cones up to $5.00 per pack. Raw resins, Liturgical blends and Athonite Incense have been raised to $7.00 per ounce.The price increase is necessary in order that I can continue this work. International import tariffs, and customs charges, not to mention the price of resins and fragrance essences, have forced me to do this.
But the good news is: Colossal Cones are coming! :) I will be offering 2 and a half inch cones in all our regular fragrances. These will burn longer and offer more punch for your money. When they are ready, you will see them offered on the website for $5.50 per pack.
Wholesale Orders:We now require a minimum of $75.00 for wholesale orders. Discounts remain the same. Please contact me, Columbina, for all details.
Other Announcements:December 2012:Effective in October, we began limiting our work hours each week. I (Columbina) can no longer handle working 7 days a week, at all hours of the night. I am no longer processing orders on Sundays or Mondays. Please understand. I need some rest. If you place an order from Saturday night into Monday, they will not be processed until Tuesday and/or shipped until Wednesday. My health is on the line and I just can't handle the 24/7 schedule like I used to. I'm getting older, and I now have to admit it and allow for it.
