LEARN MORE ABOUT INCENSE 

The word “incense” itself is from the Latin word “incendere” which means “to burn”.  The word “incense” is also closely tied to the Latin word “incensus” which means “to cause a passion or emotion to become aroused”. 

It is a slow burning combination of plant-based materials, including fragrant woods,  and essential oils which emits fragrant smoke upon lighting.  

Incense is first lit by flame and quickly put out once the flame “catches”.  In its wake, the flame leaves a smouldering ember which catalyses a slow burn of the incense, allowing it to release a fragrant smoke whose scent is created by the combination of its burning components.   Incense often evokes sentiment and states of mind which go far beyond the physical manifestation of its scent.  Incense is frequently used in meditation as an agent to bring alertness to the mind and help cleanse distracting thoughts.  

 The fragrant smoke from incense can have the remarkable property of creating a spiritual atmosphere which can have diverse uses from priming a calming space by simply filling  the everyday household with a sense of calm and transcendence. Incense sticks generally have holders which allow the sticks to be held in a hole in a supporting foundation with room for ash to fall safely.  

  •       Incense rids impurities and brings harmony
  •       Incense alerts the mind and senses
  •       Incense serves as a companion in solitude
  •       Incense brings peace and calms the mind when busy

This Is Incense is heavenly scented with a combination of local oils which when burnt can reduce stress, lift depression, and restore or enhance emotional health.

Essential Oils and Incense

Incense compliments other kinds of aromatherapy and when used in conjunction with essential oils, a synergistic harmony can be achieved. 

Aromatherapy is the age old practice of using natural essences of aromatic plants to stimulate the health and wellbeing of the mind, body and emotions.  These essences, known as essential oils, are the pure and vibrant quintessence of fragrant botanical plants.  This is Incense is treated with essential oils as part of the mixture with the bamboo fragrant wood.

Essential oils can have enormous therapeutic benefits when burned as part of incense. Essential oils are removed from numerous varieties of trees, bushes, herbs, grasses, fruits, berries, and flowers. Varying concentrations of essential oil are held in different parts of a plant.
