Incense

Incense is defined as fragrant gums and spices used to produce a sweet smell when burned. The word comes from the Latin incendere to set fire to. Incense sticks are also known as joss sticks, which is a Chinese derivation of the word god.

There is evidence going back thousands of years that people have been burning incense. Some people burn it to cover an unpleasant smell such as cigarette smoke, or to repel insects. Many religions use incense in their ceremonies and the rest of us like to burn it simply to produce a pleasant aroma in its own right.

Smudging is a practice whereby the smoke from incense is waved over an object such as a crystal or around a room to cleanse and remove impurities or negative energies.

Incense sticks are typically from India, where they are also known as agarbathi. They are made by rolling the fragrant material around a bamboo stick. Most are still made by hand and a skilled worker can produce 4,000 sticks a day. Incense cones, or dhoops, were originally from Japan.

To burn your incense, light it with a flame and then blow it out so that the stick or cone continues to smolder. The "burn time" for a stick is approximately 30 minutes or 20 minutes for a cone.
