Incense is one of the most popular tools in spiritual rituals. From clearing negative energy to amplifying a spell’s effectiveness to increasing your luck, there's nothing incense can't do. For centuries, people have looked to the pungent heady smoke for assistance in their rituals and ceremonies. There are countless types of incense available today, each with its own specific aroma and properties. Below you will find a list of some of the most common incenses, as well as their intended use.

Where does the Name “Incense” come from?

The English word “incense” derives from the Latin word for “to burn”, incendēre.

So in its most basic sense (no pun intended), incense is just different plant materials that are burnt for their fragrant smells. You might have heard of the common incense ingredient sandalwood. Burning a piece of sandalwood for its smell is considered burning incense.

What is Incense made of?

There are two basic elements to incense: aromatic substances, and a heat source.

The aromatic substance in its “original” or raw form includes a variety of woods, resins, seeds, roots, and sometimes leaves and flowers. In ancient and medieval times, incense tended to be burnt in its raw form, like the sandalwood chips shown below.

In the medieval Chinese palace, for example, incense burners would have a top section with a small plate that held wood chips or resins, with a heat source like burning charcoal underneath.  

Even today, wood chips called bakhoor, burnt over charcoal, are the preferred form for incense in most Arab countries. Although for variety and affordability reasons, these chips have been dipped in essential oils and mixed with other fragrant ingredients. (High quality, raw fragrant wood chips are extremely expensive today.)

In most of the rest of the world, incense today tends to be in the form of pastes or powders, made into shapes like sticks. The pastes or powders are made from a mixture of aromatic substances ground up from their raw form, with a binding agent added. The incense stick (or whatever other shape it's in) can then be directly lit. We will go into more detail on the various shapes of incense below.

I love the Black Dragon Face Mask. It's viscous and there was a lot of it in the container. Definitely feel like it helps clean my skin.

The hardest decision is choosing what scent to buy, so I had to buy four. All four are fantastic! Now I struggle to decide which one to use! The package came with a keychain and an amazing essential oil roll on that smells great. I definitely recommend. A little bit of this butter goes a long way, yet somehow it does not feel greasy either. I'm over the moon that I found this store! Buy from this store!!!
