Incense can be a very important part of a meditation. Burning of incense helps to create a positive state of mind and helps associate a particular fragrance with a calm, relaxed mental state. Frankincense is the original incense; in fact that’s where the word “incense” comes from. The effects of burning Frankincense are uplifting, centering and purifying with a warm sweet aroma. It’s one of the best scents for creating a meditative space.
Within today’s busy lifestyle, many of us are looking for relief from the stress and calamity of our hectic lives, and such relief can be found through meditation with incense. A favorite is the scent of sandalwood, as it promotes relaxation, openness, and grounding. Its special calming effect has been used to treat anxiety and depression, and it acts as a mild sedative. A quartz crystal may be held or worn during meditation in order to absorb its properties while it cleanses and purifies thoughts and emotions. Just like a candle brightens up the darkness, burning incense can bring tranquility to the senses. This process is called aromatherapy.
