Many people view burning incense as a basic form of air freshner totally unaware of many of the benefits it has on the mind and body.

Monks recognised these benefits long ago and have been using incense during their meditation to not only clear the air but their mind also. Enhancing concentration and focus while stimulating creativity, incense can take your mind on many paths. Whether you are looking to increase your motivation and positive energy or boost your confidence there is an incense out there for you.

Many types of incense have antibacterial properties and can be used as a disinfectant to help rid the air of germs in the environment and because our sense of smell is a direct path to the brain certain fragrances can trigger an immediate response and help alleviate discomfort associated with headaches and sinus pain.

For me personally burning incense has a huge calming effect in the home. It reduces anxiety and tension and helps me to relax.

What do you need? Can incense help?
