Incense alleviate negativity


The history

Incense alleviates negativity and alter your mood and they are something that have been used for many years.  They have a long history in the ancient Near East.  Some would say they were particularly popular in the Levant and Arabia from the late fifth century BC to the first century AD.  They were specifically used to burn natural aromatics within the home and temple.


Firstly, the practice of Aromatherapy has been present for thousands of years with many reported benefits.

What is incense used for?

I know, you may be wondering what incense is used for?  Well let me share with you.  Firstly, Incense burners are lit in rooms to alleviate your mood and calm down the mind.  Incense sticks alleviate negativity and alter your mood.

This results in ridding a room of negative energies as well as cleansing the room.  How amazing is it that they can change the mood of a room?

Secondly, they activate your senses and relax the nerves; making you less anxious.  They can relax your mind, they also help you think more clearly.

Many people, over the years, have found they are the perfect additions to meditation classes or yoga classes.  As a result, they help create the perfect ambiance.

It is hard to believe that something so simple can hold the power to cleanse the air, isn’t it?.  Would you believe they also stimulate the nerve connections.  Not only this it can make you more productive!!  Pretty powerful aren’t they?

How can I use incense?

Incense comes in cones, back flow cones and also incense sticks.  The sticks are probably the most popular.  However, I personally love the backflow cones.

You place the incense, of choice, into a burner and light the incense and allow to burn down and let the scent fill the room.

We have a range of different burners
