Collection: Incense

Incense can help in several ways:


1. Relaxation and meditation: Burning incense can help set a calm and soothing atmosphere that aids relaxation and meditation. The scents and smells can help clear the mind and promote feelings of peace and tranquility.


2. Spiritual purposes: Some people use incense for spiritual purposes as part of religious rituals and ceremonies. Incense burning has a long history in various faiths as a way to honor deities and spirits.


3. Air purification: Some types of incense contain essential oils and plant extracts that release volatile organic compounds into the air when burned. These compounds can help purify the air by killing bacteria and absorbing odors. However, incense smoke also produces particulate matter that can be unhealthy if burned excessively.


4. Aromatherapy benefits: The aromatic smells from incense can provide some of the same benefits as aromatherapy, including feelings of refreshment, alertness and comfort. Certain scents from incense may help relieve headaches, nausea and other ailments.


5. Mask unwanted odors: Burning incense can help mask unwanted smells in the air from things like cooking, pets and other sources. The smoke and fragrance from incense can temporarily cover up or neutralize unpleasant odors.


However, keep in mind that burning incense excessively may produce unhealthy smoke and particulate matter, so use incense in moderation for the best benefits. Try incense with natural ingredients and no added chemicals whenever possible.
