  • Incense

    Incense is known to have a calming effect on the mind. It is customary to offer incense before a period of meditation. Offering incense expresses our intention to let go of our individual, conceptual self and open to our awakened nature.

    Incense is one of the eight traditional offerings — water for drinking, water for bathing, flowers, incense, light, perfume, food and music. When incense is lit, its beautiful fragrance expands and increases throughout space symbolizing the way morality, ethics, and discipline become the basic causes and conditions from which the qualities of wisdom and compassion grow.

a bit much

It truly does produce very little smoke, which is important and why I tried it. I found the scent a bit much, very sweet. Even the closet where the box is kept is quite fragrant with it now.

Calm and smooth

I tried this incense for daily use while meditating and the fragrance was earthy but not too strong. It was calming and left a soft fragrance in the room. The sandlewood fragrance is excellent, not overpowering.
