    Aid To Meditation

    I calm myself after a serious days work using meditation and incense. I have a number of incense sticks that I burn, including lavender bergamot and patchouli. The smoke wafts through my home and creates a mindset. It is good to sit and empty my mind from all except the Om.

    Since I Moved Out..

    I have loved incense. At my parents home I wasn't allowed to have candles or incense burning in my room, so when I moved out I went a little crazy. I particularly enjoyed it in my first studio apartment. The scent filled the whole place better than a candle ever did and lasted a...

    Follow The Smoke

    I love the scents. I have different ones I use at different times. And for different things. But my biggest use for it is while I meditate. Sometimes, I just can't seem to let things go long enough. When that happens I just sort of follow the smoke... little wisp it is. Off to...

    Frankincense Or Myrrh

    Gimme the gifts that the 3 Wise Men gave to Jesus anyday.  I have always said, "If it's good enough for Jesus, then it's better for me."  Never meant that in the religious sense, only in the time period/frame that he was born in.   I love the calming...

    Argh, I recently ran out and I was lost without it.  Nothing takes the smell of stinky trash can away better than some incense.  And taking out the trash would make too much sense. Plus it clears the energy.

    My Favorite

    My favorite incense is probably sandalwood, but burning anything really is cool. My friends and I play with laser pointers and smoke from the incense, it looks really weird.

    i like burning incense sticks better than burning candles.  take up less room, and i can just toss the ashes when it's done burning...no waxy mess like candles.
