A flame in the heart, sparked by a need to create beautiful products of quality, manufactured with care, has grown into an interesting and challenging commercial venture. At Maroma, business is not done 'as usual', but with an increasing awareness and sensitivity towards the local and global environment, and towards the needs of Auroville.

- Only adults, mostly women, are employed from the local villages.

- Priorities include: a clean and pleasant work atmosphere, health care facilities and nutritional snacks among other things.

- 45% of Maroma's net profits are turned over to the development of Auroville and the surrounding villages.

- The fragrances of Maroma comply with the guidelines of IFRA.

But what matters most is how things are done; the conscious intention behind each and every detail - for, at Maroma, work is our love and a personal way to focus and grow with the visionary aims of Auroville.

Encens d'Auroville

Breath is life. To breathe the live air of a room scented with incense made by Maroma is a more conscious experience. At Maroma, we think that is important. That's why we created Encens d'Auroville using natural botanical essences blended into our fragrances. Maroma has 34 years experience in the fine art of creating perfectly balanced natural fragrances - the intuitive heart of the incense business.

From the fine hand-rolling of paste onto bamboo sticks by local village artisans to the quality ingredients blended into each of our 60 fragrances, the Encens d'Auroville incense line is packaged in silk-screened handmade paper made from cotton yarn, - handmade paper saves on the world's trees. The fragrances of Encens d'Auroville comply with the guidelines of IFRA.






Indulge and immerse yourself in a century old tradition that uses the aromatic properties of medicinal plants to promote relaxation and well being. The pure botanical oils that comprise these compositions are extracted from petals, seeds, resins, leaves, fruits, roots and bark. These extremely refined essences are the most essential and subtle parts of selected plants and each of these natural botanical oils enhances one's life energy with its specific properties. When these precious oils are skillfully blended together by our master craftsmen, a new medium is created that helps restore balance to the body, mind and spirit. Our aromatherapy stimulates natural defense mechanisms and promotes healing at both physical and emotional levels.



A wide range of products

There are 9 different compositions of Maroma SPA Aromatherapy. Available as Pure Essential Oil Blends, Incense, Sachets, Aromatherapy Glass Votives, Pulse Points and gift sets. As well as a superior range of body care products: Shampoo, Massage oil, Soap, Shower gels and Body lotions.
