Incense is used widely in many different cultures and fraternities, such as shamans, cleansing ceremonies and rituals. Incenses are used to create mood changes, with uplifting, pleasant and clearing aromas that are natural fragrances.
Incense can be used for clearing spaces, healing or for its seeing or psychic abilities for divination.
Incense is made from natural herbs, spices, flowers and essential oils.
They provide amazing aromas and vibrations that help create a clear space to both work & live in by utilising all natural joss style incense sticks, herbs and gum resins. They are generally handmade with essential oils and natural plants, such as rose, jasmine, lavender, sandalwood and so many other wonderful natural aromas
Some of the most popular fragrances are citronella, lemongrass, frankincense, patchouli, sandalwood, jasmine, vanilla, rose and nag champa, which are mixed to make other types of incense that are focused on clarity and relaxation. They are also popular in a tradition called Buddha or Reiki or Tantric as the aromas can be warm, calming, refreshing and uplifting or sensual and romantic.
Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal are widely used in churches, religious circles and practices, including Methodist and Catholic churches, Native Americans, Buddhists, Reiki, Shamanism and Pagan and Celtic traditions.
There are many different ways to burn incense. For example, you can diffuse it, by using charcoal and liberally adding incense to it to create the desired effect. Alternatively, you can use essential oils and diffuse a fragranced oil in an oil burner, adding a few drops to release the aroma once warmed up.
There are also backflow incense burners and dhoop cones. These have a small hole in one end to create a vacuum, which allows the incense smudge to draw downwards with a mesmerising effect in a shaped dish such as a lotus leaf, or a waterfall. Dhoop cones are a smaller, simpler ways to get a desired effect
Place a self-igniting charcoal disc on a fire-proof surface, well away from flammable objects. The charcoal disks can be ignited simply by holding a match or lighter to the rim. Be aware that these discs may occasionally spit and spark profusely upon ignition. Allow plenty of air to flow around the charcoal to ensure that it burns evenly. Some people prefer to open a window while the charcoal is igniting, as it gives off quite a bit of smoke. Once the charcoal disc has finished sparking, it will start to glow, usually first on one side, then slowly spreading over the whole disc. When the entire disc is glowing red hot, it is ready to use and you can place a little pinch of incense on top. As the disk glows through, the fire will concentrate in its centre. You may occasionally want to scrape off the ashes to expose the glowing centre and add fresh incense as desired.
Incense is a popular home fragrance used widely to dispel bad smells and clear away negativity, leaving a light air and aroma. When using incense, always use it in a well ventilated area and never inhale. Keep out of reach of children and exercise caution if pregnant. Seek professional advice on use.
Incense keeps well and often improves with age if kept in a cool and dark place. Charcoal, on the other hand, does not, as it has a tendency to absorb moisture from the air. Once the packet has been opened, keep it in an airtight container to preserve its self-igniting properties.
CAUTION: Keep incense and charcoal out of pet’s and children’s reach. Charcoal discs are highly flammable. PLEASE BE CAREFUL when igniting your charcoal disc. Once the disc has been lit do not touch it, as it will cause a burn. Make sure your incense dish is fireproof and does not conduct heat to the surface on which it stands. Glass (even glass ashtrays) will break. Do not dispose of the remaining ashes in a waste paper bin or plastic garbage bin as it may cause a fire. Do not hold the disc in your hand while lighting or burning.
It's important to note that the reasons people use incense can vary widely depending on personal beliefs, cultural background, and individual preferences. While incense can offer many benefits, some individuals may also be sensitive to smoke or fragrances, so it's a good idea to be considerate of others when using incense in shared spaces.
