Uses of Incense
Here are some uses of incense listed below in human's life.
The first use of incense is said to have been strictly religious. In Ancient Egypt, Ancient China and Ancient Greece, incense was revered for its spiritual and religious properties. Incense has been used as a method of repelling evil or un savoury spirits such as demons. In the same vein it was also used to welcome more benevolent spirits like angels.
Due to this part of history we've been able to access, we have sufficient evidence of the inherent spiritual nature of incense. It is important that we mention spirituality is not exclusive to religion. There are other ways to practice spirituality and most of these methods uphold the use of incense. Some of them are yoga and meditation.
These practices emphasize the importance of stillness and becoming one with the world around you. For people who get distracted easily, burning incense can be quite helpful when meditating or practicing yoga because incense is not a very demanding form of distraction.
The aesthetic use of incense is completely dependent on its smell. This is when incense is used simply because the aroma is satisfactory. It is quite different from the practical use of incense which is completely based on what that aroma can do.
At all levels, incense is fundamentally practical. It is being used because it serves a certain purpose however practical uses stand apart because it is solely because of what it can do, there are no religious connotations whatsoever. In this case, incense can be used because it helps to combat the presence of bugs and it can be used to mask or get rid of unpleasant odours.
