Aromatherapy provides relief to our bodies and minds, while using plant oils, including essential oils or incense. The term comes from a French chemist named René-Maurice Gattefossé in 1937. During an experiment, he burned his hand and poured lavender oil over it. Surprisingly, it healed in no time and didn't leave any blistering or scarring behind. Since then, ‘Aromatherapie’ has become a lifelong interest in the healing resources of plants. But also, the Egyptians and Greeks already knew about the benefits of aromatherapy, proving that the science of aromatherapy is modern, but the knowledge of the benefits of plants has been around for centuries.
Aromatherapy helps our psychological and physical well-being. It has a lot of positive benefits on our body and psyche. The oils of the essential oils extracted from plants and 100% natural incense can effectively treat a number of aliments. In contrast to the doctor’s office, your local pharmacy or an acupuncturist, aromatherapy combines both physical and mental aspects of healing without any side effects. Modern medicine mostly weakens one part of the body while trying to strengthen another part of it. The essential oils and incense, on the other hand, strengthen simultaneously many parts of the body.
There are many ways of applying aromatherapy, such as inhaling fragrance, applying it directly onto the skin or using incense for the same effect. While using incense, be aware to use the proper precautions and proper tools, as well as never leaving it unattended to ensure your safety. Also, be conscious about which incense is used. Most types of incense are synthetic and release toxic substances when burned. For this reason, use our 100% handmade, organic and entirely made out of natural materials incense. There are several different types of incense that can be used in aromatherapy. The following will give you a short overview of specific types of incense that have a function in aromatherapy.
Sandalwood is one of the finest all-natural ingredients taken from the sacred forests of India. Its aroma calms the mind and makes one think of sacred things.
Frankincense is obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia and is used in incense and perfumes. It is an aromatic resin that is available in various grades depending on when it gets harvested. Modern science has shown that, when burned, frankincense releases molecules of trahydrocannabinole, a psychoactive compound that may be responsible for uplifting the spirit. Therefore, Aromatherapists and massage practitioners say that burning frankincense deepens breathing, aids relaxation, and causes the lungs to expand.
Cinnamon, one of the most widely available incenses and oldest spices, is used all around the world. It has a lot of health benefits. Cinnamon has antifungal, antibacterial, and even antiviral properties.
Aromatherapy, and using incense for it, has many benefits. Inhaling the right fragrance can reduce stress, lift a depression, hasten a good night's sleep, soothe your soul, or give you more energy.
