"My unique selling point is that all of my scents are Arabian or eastern type scents. 

"Our products are also halal and vegetarian.As a company we have had an amazing response.  All our products are handmade in our own workshop and our ingredients are sourced from within the UK. 

"People love to use our products in their homes as an alternative to bakhoor and incense sticks but also as gifts for Eid, mehndi ceremonies, weddings, Umrah / Hajj and Christmas.

"We also have a sister brand called Nuhr Home (www.nuhrhome.com) which is a more premium brand aimed at John Lewis and Selfridges.  

"This brand has been received extremely well and we have just exported our first order to Dubai where it is available at the award winning store Sauce based in the Dubai Mall, the Four Seasons Hotel on the Jumeirah Beach Resort and four other locations in Dubai."
