What is incense and what does it do?
Simply put, incense is a substance that is burned to create an aromatic scent. Generally, it is made out of plant materials and can have healing or calming benefits. Whether you’re stressed or needing a moment to reset yourself, incense is a great way to cleanse the soul and make the area you’re in smell great.

Incense and spiritual connections
