For centuries, people have used incense for meditative and spiritual practices. The long history of incense speaks to its incredible power. We love burning incense and believe that there are many amazing benefits to unlock in this practice. Here are our five favorite benefits of burning incense:
Burning incense is a deliberate practice that sets aside time to really focus on the task at hand. Whether you are working or meditating, incense can help clear your mind and help you focus on the task you are doing.
Incense can trigger your sense memory, helping you connect with moments in your life that inspire you. It can also help you connect with your environment so you can foster the creative energy inside of you.
Incense can help boost your motivation by heightening your sense of awareness. Channeling the awareness of the world around you can help inspire you to fulfill your ambitions.
Creating space is really important when taking time out. Burning incense can help define through its smells as well as the time it takes for the sticks to burn. This helps you connect you to your environment so you can focus on your spiritual growth.
Incense can help to slow your heart rate, improve your breathing, and relaxed tired nerves. Also, taking the time to burn incense in and of itself is a caring practice which can help you feel better no matter what is going on in your life.
With so many amazing benefits, you definitely want to make sure that you are choosing the highest quality incense. Many mass produced incense are made with synthetic binding agents and artificial fragrances which are pretty unhealthy and can actually pollute your air, instead of cleansing it. Utama Spice incense contain all natural ingredients, and are hand-made using traditional Indonesian methods.
Moonflower: We recommend our Moonflower sticks for daily use. The fresh fragrance can help you keep you energized, focused, and ready to take on any task.
Temple Spice: It took us two years to perfect the formula of Temple Spice. These sticks were designed to help aid in meditative practices to connect the mind, body, and soul to the environment around us. We definitely recommend these for anyone looking to be more present.
Begone Bug: Containing the same ingredients as our Begone Bug spray, these sticks are perfect for burning during the summer to keep pests out of the home. They are also great for picnics, barbecues or when camping.
