Much like burning sage, incense has almost the same effect. It can change the energy of the room in minutes and as such also aids in clarity and concentration. Of all our senses, the sense of smell is the strongest and a good smell can bring back happy memories or an event, place or person. So use happy smells repeatedly. 🙂
Incense is also commonly used in religious places such as the Buddist temples in China, Japan, Tibet, the Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches, Indian temples around the world as a sign of purification and calling upon the deities to aid protection and offering prayers to them. Most of the holy places burn some kind of incense or dried leaves to have that smell which almost immediately can transport you into another frame of mind… hopefully a relaxed one!
You can even use incense to keep a pleasant environment at home and remove any un-wanted smells such as cigarette smoke or unpleasant cooking odours.
