6 Benefits Of Incense For The Mind, Body And Soul


If there was one thing that bound all the different, competing religions of the world together, it would be burning incense. Whether it is an altar boy burning frankincense during mass or a priest lighting incense sticks during a puja, the smell of incense is something that we can all immediately identify with. Even outside the realm of prayer, lighting incense has a multitude of benefits that can bring calmness to our souls. If it’s good enough for the gods, it’s good enough for us.

1. Reduces Anxiety And Tension

Certain smells have long been believed to have a very real effect on our body. Perhaps the reason behind the calmness of Buddhist monks is that they inhale incense all day. If you’re ever feeling the pressures of life getting to you, try burning some sandalwood or jasmine incense sticks and feel yourself reach nirvana.

2. It Can Help You Sleep Better

Next time your partner wants to buy you a bouquet of roses, hint that he should buy you a box of rose incense sticks instead. Fragrances like rose and lavender soothe your senses and help you fall asleep much faster. Just be sure to burn the sticks in a safe place or you might just sleep through a raging fire.

3. It Can Make You Better To Sleep With

Fragrances can be a powerful aphrodisiac by heightening your senses and making you more aware. If you find you can’t concentrate on your partner’s new moves because of other worries, burn some cinnamon or vanilla fragrance. These two scents are believed to be extremely effective at heightening arousal. Or making you hungry.

  1. My mood and/or what I’m using the inscense for helps me decide which scent to pick. My husband kind of laughs if he’s in the room when I open my incense drawer because of all the different scents mixing and me standing there inhaling through my nose to bring in the different scents in and out through my mouth to taste them. (Hmmm… Maybe I should do a post on the benefits of doing this if you have a free different incense you use regularly.) For instance when I’m calling my mom to come for a chat from the other side of the veil I use our favorite scent Sandalwood. No matter if I was visiting her or her, me we would burn a Sandalwood intense stick while I did a Tarot or Ogham reading for her.
