Predominantly it has been used in religious or spiritual practices, however in today's world it is just as likely to be utilised as an air freshener, mood enhancer or calming influence. They mainly consist of aromatic plant material and a mixture of essential oils. Each scent has its own properties based upon the oils used. To find out what kind of effect a particular incense may evoke simply look up the properties for the essential oils or plant materials used.
Some of the benefits to burning incense & essential oils
Concentration & Focus
Whether required for study or simply focus, some incense and oils have a favorable effect upon your concentration and awareness levels. Amber, lotus, basil, lime and vanilla are all good for focus and concentration.
Beautiful, potent and floral incense types can help to release the mind and transport you away from yourself. They offer a peek beyond the mundane. For this some useful incense types may be patchouli and opium.
Incense has been used in the past to prepare an army for battle. In medieval times cedarwood would be burned throughout the castle before a battle to strengthen the courage and resolve of the troops. Other woody scents like sandalwood and vetiver can have a similar effect.
Increasing sexual desire
Scent is a powerful way to engage the senses and attract the opposite sex. When combined with the added effect of confidence and focus from the right incense can become a very potent ingredient in arousing sexual desire. Cinnamon, patchouli, lavender, rose and slang slang can all be used to increase desire, ease communication and stimulate virility.
Reducing anxiety & tension
Religious practitioners have been using incense for centuries to instil calm and create a better environment for meditation and heightened spiritual awareness. These same scents also help to relax your nerves and create a sense of peace. Frankincense, musk, myrrh, sandalwood and nag champa are all ideal for this use.
