Six Reasons to Join the Incense Craze
Incense, incense, incense. We all know the scent, the historical importance, and the vibe it gives out. But not all really understands what a smoke can do inside a home, office, or garden. So let us look at six of the reasons why you should consider buying your incense burner!
Scents, aromas, fragrances (however you describe them) can be used to trigger specific responses. For instance; to encourage relaxation, aid sleep, promote concentration, stimulate creativity, increase motivation and heighten sexual desire. In addition, there’s also a whole raft of religious, aesthetic and practical reasons.
AND look out for a special offer from us so that you can start your Infinite Incense journey today without breaking the bank!
Relax and unwind
Light some Incense, curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea, a book and some chilled-out music. Alternatively, run a bath and replace candles with an Incense Stick or two. Soft fragrances will further enhance this time, allowing you to give yourself time and space away from the hassles of everyday living.
Frankincense, Sandalwood and Cedarwood are all ‘calming fragrances’, so work well for general relaxation.
Generosity and Mindfulness
Whether formal or informal, religious or aesthetic, you create good Karma by taking an incense stick and lighting it as an offering. A simple way to do something, without expectation of return. An act of generosity and letting go.
Make this a mindful activity and select an Incense Stick of high-quality. Take time and pride in preparation, selecting your stick, incense bowl and lighting materials. Light, ‘listen’ to the fragrance and relax.
A well-selected fragrance can be used to enhance your own abilities, stimulate ideas and improve mental performance. Aloeswood based Incense is known for this as well as ‘uplifting’ fragrances such as Lemongrass, Citrus scents, Geranium and Ylang-Ylang.
Certain floral based ingredients have antibacterial properties – such as the Nag Champas. Plus, Incense is an easy, quick and accessible way to cover unwanted household smells like cooking, pets, damp clothes etc. Cedar, Myrrh and Citrus scents will ‘cleanse’ the air, leaving behind a freshness and new beginning.
Increase sexual desire
Yes! Use fragrances such as Jasmine, Vanilla and Rose to create a ‘get it on’ mood. We stock a very popular Romance Selection box of Luxury Indian Incense by Sacred Elephant for this very purpose. The mind is a powerful thing, readily activated by these aphrodisiac scents. Also, try Cinnamon to drive passion and loving moments.
Incense is used widely in many religious practices to deepen attention, heighten senses and uplift one’s own spirit when practicing meditation. Traditionally, the passing of time was also measured by the burning of set length incense sticks.
Sandalwoods and Lotus are used most frequently for meditation – but you chose what suits you best. One that transports you to the place you need to be, without taking over your thoughts.
