WHAT IS INCENSE:
Incense is aromatic biotic material that releases fragrant smoke when burnt.
The term is used for either the material or the aroma.
Incense is used for aesthetic reasons, religious worship, aromatherapy, meditation, and ceremony.
It may also be used as a simple deodorant or insect repellent.
Incense can generally be separated into two main types: "indirect-burning" and "direct-burning". Indirect-burning incense (or "non-combustible incense") is not capable of burning on its own, and requires a separate heat source.
Direct-burning incense (or "combustible incense") is lit directly by a flame and then fanned or blown out, leaving a glowing ember that smoulders and releases a smoky fragrance. Direct-burning incense is either a paste formed around a bamboo stick, or a paste that is extruded into a stick or cone shape.
The word incense comes from Latin incendere meaning 'to burn'.
Combustible bouquets were used by the ancient Egyptians, who employed incense in both pragmatic and mystical capacities.
The Babylonians used incense while offering prayers to divining oracles.
The oldest source on incense is the Vedas, specifically the Atharva-veda and the Rigveda.
Incense-burning was used both to create pleasing aromas and a medicinal tool. Its use in medicine is considered the first phase of Ayurveda, which uses incense as an approach to healing.
