“Visiting an Indian Temple is truly a one-of-a-kind experience where all senses are awakened. But more than anywhere else, the sense of smell has a strong association with spirituality and religion in India. The sharp and invigorating fragrance of burning camphor mixes with the scent of marigold and rose garlands adorning the Gods (and Goddesses!) while fragrant swirls rising from a bunch of smouldering incense sticks leaves a warm, rich and woody scent of Sandalwood that lingers for hours. This incense paints a picture of Indian temples replete with an exotic scent”.
Some of the benefits of burning incense include;
- Increase calm and focus.
- Reduce stress and anxiety.
- Aid sleep.
- Complement a yoga or meditation practice.
- Stimulate creativity.
- Purify your space.
- The simple pleasure of enjoying a lovely scent.
