Since ancient times, people have understood how subtle smells can affect a person: some confuse and irritate, some tone up, put them into work, tune their consciousness to spiritual growth, strengthening this state.
«Incense» or incense has always been used by man for healing and healing, ceremonies, and later in perfumery. Mentions are found in the description of ancient rites and rituals of Mesopotamia, Arabia, Egypt, India, Greece and Rome. For many years, incense was not available to ordinary people. Therefore, the use of incense is always covered with a certain mysticism, anticipation and a veil of secrecy… Muted light, a trickle of fragrant smoke, a state of peace and strength — these are images that live for millennia.
The most ancient incense is frankincense, sandalwood, camphor and myrrh. Over the years, the variety of aromas has grown and each of us can pick up something to our liking — today the market offers us many options for incense. The first thing you can stumble upon in stores is incense sticks. They are called Indian or Thai incense, but this is incorrect. They are made on the basis of bamboo sticks, using coal and aromatic oils. When burned, coal does not smell and we feel only a bright, sometimes intrusive, aroma of oil. Real incense, on the other hand, is made entirely on a natural basis by pressing or twisting, often retaining its natural appearance. To create using herbs, trees, resin, pollen and other natural ingredients.
An excellent option for exploring the world of incense or replenishing the collection will be products from SPIRIT RITUALS. We use only natural ingredients that are ethically sourced.
