Close your eyes and imagine a
wonderful scent wafting through your home the moment you enter. Doesn’t it
immediately make you feel better after a long and hard day at work? Before you
order incense sticks online, you should find out more on how to burn
incense and the different kinds that are available. The best incense sticks
in India are those that last long, emanate a soothing aroma and not have
any side-effects. Read on to know some tips on how to burn incense:
• You can burn the incense directly. The
direct burning method means lighting up the incense stick via a flame/match
stick and then blown out so that the ember remains for a while, and slowly
releases aroma. This can sustain for a while. The incense is stuck to a
flammable substance like oil and then it is rolled on to a stick. The sticks
are placed in holders.
• Then, there is the indirect method of
burning incense. Typically, the indirect method involves incense cones or
granulated powder/paste. The Indian version is ‘dhoop’ and it usually is made
of a paste of frankincense which is then mixed with an essential oil. For the
aroma to get diffused there needs to be a constant heat source. Usually,
incense is placed on coals so that it will burn at a slow pace and give out a
fragrance. Make sure you have a good burner because cones or cylinder-type of
incense burn completely and the surface you place it on should be resistant to
heat. A brass burner is often used.
• Don’t place incense censers/holders on
wooden surfaces as the embers or sparks can start a fire. Instead use ceramic
or stone surfaces.
• Keep the room in which you are burning
incense well-ventilated; move around the holder from one place to another so
that the smoke and aroma gets diffused across the space.
• Needless to mention, avoid burning
incense around pets or children.
• Now that you know the different
methods involved in burning incense, you can look up different fragrances and
order incense sticks online. Choose only the best incense sticks in
India that have a good reputation. Don’t fall for the fake ones as they
could have sub-standard quality of fragrance and cause itching or irritation in
the eye when they are burnt. When you look for different fragrances, remember
that different aromas are used for different reasons. Sandalwood, for instance
is used to sanctify your home and has a divine vibe to its smell. Jasmine helps
you calm down and relax; it’s used as an antidepressant fragrance. The same
applies to the rose fragrance. Opt for brands or companies that largely use
