Floracopeia offers a growing collection of aromatic incense treasures. For thousands of years, fragrant resins, woods, grasses and other incense plants have been used for spiritual upliftment, ritual and ceremonial offerings, meditative tranquility, atmospheric purification, treatment of psychological and emotional disturbances, and sensual pleasure. Today, these uses are as relevant as ever.
Like the world of perfumery, incense making now relies heavily on synthetic aroma chemicals. Cheaper, easier to work with, and abundantly available, these toxic chemicals are a threat to health. High-quality pure incense ingredients, on the other hand, offer a multitude of health benefits, including antibacterial, immune enhancing, anti-depressant, and anti-anxiety powers.
Using natural incenses in their raw form such as resin tears, compounded incenses such as Kyphi, or wood chips such as agarwood and sandalwood, requires mindfulness and a little more time than simply lighting an incense stick. Lighting the charcoal, placing the incense on the coal, and using the aromatic smoke is an ancient form of devotional meditation that takes us out of our daily routines and reminds us of the sacredness of the moment. Use these special and unique incenses and resins sparingly and with reverence, remembering that they are precious treasures from a vanishing botanical world, and increasingly rare and difficult to procure.
