How To Burn Incense Sticks

Incense has been used by the masses across the world for centuries with some cultures burning incense at significant ceremonies and others using during prayer. These days, incense is still used for spiritual purposes, but it is also enjoyed simply for its aroma, aesthetic beauty and therapeutic qualities. Incense comes in many forms, the most commonly found being stick incense that is burned (usual in a burner).


Incense stick blends vary in terms of quality, aromas, burning time and ingredients. The more luxurious incense sticks are often based on premium ingredients such as oud or agarwood and blended to produce premium aromas such as oriental damask rose and musk, luxurious leather with fruity wild strawberry or citrus, sea salt, and a woody/mossy undercurrent.
