The use of incense dates back to antiquity. Incense is an ancient ritual tool that draws on the aromatic powers of herbs, spices, oils, resins, and tree barks to create a sacred atmosphere and a state of mind conducive to communing with our higher self, our divine and the spirit world. Representing the element of Air (and in some traditions, the element of Fire), incense is considered to be a core component of ritual, and is also often used as an adjunct to workings. Additionally, studies have shown that burning certain botanicals can release negative ions (which are the good guys) into the atmosphere, improve focus and increase the sense of wellbeing in the same way as aromatherapy.
We are pleased to offer a wide array of incense created with mindfulness to both the environment and to the energies of woods, flowers, roots and plants. So take time to reflect and enjoy the ancient practice of burning incense.
TIP - Enjoy the aroma of the incense with a cup of one of our lovely herbal teas as you set some time aside each evening for reviewing your day, acknowledging your successes both big and small. It's a sure way towards a good night's rest.
