The energies of scents
The use of incense and scented oils goes back to antiquity for the purposes of attraction, devotion, magic, and medical use. It creates aromatic, fragrant atmosphere both indoors and outside. Incense throughout history has been deeply intertwined with religious ceremonies and medicine. Scents create chemical reactions within the body; they stimulate the brain and the nervous system through the olfactory nerves. It can affect the mental state, invigorate us, reduce anxiety and help relaxation.
Scents have energies and properties of their own, and serve for other purposes than healing or balancing our mood. Rose, as an example, is a legendary symbol of love and is an ingredient used in love incenses. Incense can create a setting, a vibration, and a mood for magical things to happen.

You can create your own incenses, or purchase pre-made ones, but make sure they are composed of natural ingredients rather than synthetic ones. Besides being healthier and free of chemicals, natural incense has a decidedly more pronounced effect on the mind and spirit. You can purchase natural incense at your local health food store, occult or botanical shop, or through the internet. Indian incense is a better grade than most commercial pre-made incenses, with the best quality being puja dhoop, or prayer incense.
