Incense comes in many forms, but the simplest definition is any plant matter which emits a pleasant fragrance when burned. Most people are familiar with “Indian agarbatti” sticks or small cones made from sandalwood and other fragrant materials—but even raw palo santo wood chips and sweetgrass can be considered incense.
An incense burner is generally a container made from bronze or pottery in which the incense is burnt. This vessel produces a majestic cloud effect once the incense is burnt. The beautiful aroma rising from it makes anyone fall in love with it within an instant.
Benefits of using an incense burner
Incense burners have multiple attributes that make them so popular. Here are the top benefits that make them worth your purchase:
Incense sticks are used across religions and cultures to deepen attention, uplift spirits, and highlight senses when performing rituals. Lotus incense is often used in the context of meditation, while Sandalwood forms an integral part of many medication practices.
Helps in relaxation
Incense sticks used to make sandalwood incense can help you feel relaxed and unwind. The ingredients in these types of incenses will automatically react with the environment and control your body’s reaction. For example, breathing lavender oil has proven to be effective at reducing anxiety in several studies.
Essential oils of plants such as rosemary, peppermint, and citrus have improved mental cognition clarity and focus—aromatherapy with essential oils like caraway, clove flower, etc.
To unwind the hectic day, light some incense, curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a book. Relax to chilled-out music or run a bath for this time away from work hassles. Soft fragrances enhance relaxation activities like reading or bathing during quiet moments in our busy lives.
The ancient practice of burning incense is found in temples all around the world and has been for hundreds of years. The idea behind its use as a purifier to promote positive energy makes sense when you consider that science says it’s filled with antibacterial, insecticidal, and fungicidal powers – All perfect ways to cleanse the air.
So, whether you are reading a book in silence or taking a bath in solace, incense burners can be an amazing way to boost your ambiance by adding positive energy to it. Your me-time can get a hundred times better with the breathtaking aroma.
Aids in better sleep
Incense is an increasingly popular way to get that sleep you’ve been wanting. It’s especially associated with helping people fall asleep faster and more peacefully, thanks in part to lavender, vetiver, and chamomile essential oils.
Also, having a stick burning when falling asleep isn’t dangerous as using candles can be (with their naked flames). Want some help sleeping after work? Light up incense 30 minutes before bedtime, so the aroma has time to spread through your room!
Not only does a good fragrance have the ability to enhance your own abilities, but it can also stimulate ideas and improve mental performance.
An example of this is aloe-wood based incense which has been known for its uplifting effect on people as well as other fragrances such as lemongrass citrus scents, geranium, or ylang-y
