Incense can open up a whole new space for relaxation in your life. It seems that stress and anxiety are widespread these days, so there's no shame at all in taking time for peace and quiet. Burning some incense as you unwind creates an atmosphere like no other.


The use of incense dates back thousands of years in regions across the globe. It is often featured in the rituals and scripture of the world's major religions. Ever been to a church or temple which had that smoky, yet pleasant aroma in the air? Incense appears to bring the mind’s focus toward the inner spirit, relaxing the body. Scientifically speaking, powerful smells both inhibit and excite certain cells in the olfactory area of the brain. They can trigger happy memories or sensations of calm which can help to boost your immune system. They have also been known to have aphrodisiac qualities. A different kind of fulfillment can be found when using incense for private relaxation.

It is popular among world religions. This great pleasure for the senses appears in ceremonies associated with numerous faiths, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sufism, Zoroastrianism and faiths of the Chinese and Japanese people. Maybe they were all on to something. Sandalwood comes highly recommended for any time you need to clear the mind.
