What Is Incense?
Incense comes from the Latin word incendere, meaning to burn, and is obtained from resins, gums, essential oils, flowers, woods, powders and other botanicals which release fragrant smoke when burned. The term incense refers to the substance itself, not the odor that it produces.
Burning incense is a tradition that dates back thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians used incense in many of their temple rituals. Buddhists use incense to accompany their meditations, induce self-awareness and free them of negative states. Greek historian Herodotus testifies to its use among the Assyrians and Babylonians, while an incense called Ketoret was the incense offered in the Temple in Jerusalem.
Today incense is a widely used air freshener by people who want to eliminate orders or simply add more fragrance to their living or work space. Others choose specific scents that are intended to target areas of the body and mind as a type of aromatherapy. Incense is also used in meditation settings by those who believe that by breathing in incense while meditating will allow the person meditating to have a deeper connection and stronger focus.
