Incense has been used for thousand of years in almost every culture to invoke Gods, support meditation, and for healing and medicinal purposes.
Burning herbs and resins has been an especially big part of both Indian history, as well as Native American history.
I love it. Incense is definitely a part of my every day life. I like to burn them before I go to bed which has a calming effect on me like hot milk and honey. I love to use it while I meditate or listen to chill out music.
