Nag Champa incense is made from a combination of sandalwood and frangipani.
Incense is a mixture of fragrant materials, burnt to release fragrant smoke. The word “incense” comes from Latin, which means “to burn.” Its use dates back to ancient times when different materials were burnt to dispel negative energies or to attract blessings. The Egyptians were one of the earliest civilizations known to use incense in their religious offerings. The use spread to other cultures, such as the Greeks, Romans, and Chinese.
Incense is believed to have several functions, depending on its use. In religious and spiritual settings, incense is burnt to purify the air and to create a serene atmosphere for meditation and reflection. It also symbolizes connecting to the spiritual realm and honoring the divine. Incense is also used in traditional ceremonies such as weddings, funerals, and births. The smoke is thought to dispel negative energies that may affect the ceremony.
