Incense is something I burn in the late Fall and Winter.
Reminds me of the times I had a wood stove
and  fireplace....

Whenever I post about incense
several notes are sent to me
inquiring about what I use.

I use Tibetan incense made from natural herbs.
More herbal and less perfume.
Do not like a sickly sweet smell.

Might add that I find very few scented candles
appealing to me.

I like the idea of using Tibetan incense
that the monks make.  This is what appeals to me.
When in exile this incense was made.

Burning incense is something I did not do in the past.
Whenever visiting  a shop where it was being used
 usually the sweet aroma did not appeal to me.

About 5 years ago when visiting my son's home
I loved the scent of what he was burning.
Inquired about it, went online and found some

I like the natural Pine and Cedar and also some
scents are said to be healing.   Made from all
natural herbs and hand rolled.   

Also have purchased at Whole Foods when I lived
in the big city but never found it in any other shops.
No longer living in that area and visiting seldom
 it is more convenient for
me to order online.

Could you post or email me the online store where you buy your herbal incense? The healing ones sound especially good to me.

Have a lovely weekend ~ FlowerLady

I use Nag Champa which is made in India and I order it on line but I must try yours.
Though I must say my woodstove gives me so much joy!

My smeller is not as good as it used to be so most candles with fragrance are mild. I would like to try herbal scents and will research that.

Could you e-mail the web address? I so love the smell of cedar--pine too. And I used to burn incense a lot--couldn't when Fred was here as nothing aromatic (candles, etc.) were allowed because of his COPD. thanks.

As a rule I light unscented candles and incense every evening year round. Natural scents are my favorite too. Enjoy!

FL, WWW, Judy and Tabor, I sent you the email. Hesitated putting it on my journal. I like what I have ordered from them
Lynn, I burn unscented candles every evening also :)

I burn incense too, the Indian kind, which a friend brings me back from her annual pilgrimages.

It’s rather char-coally and a little dry. I love the smell it leaves behind for a long time afterwards.
