Have you ever heard of incense cones? Don’t worry if you haven’t. I’m here to tell you all about it. But first, let’s talk about our homes – our safe space – where we gather with family and friends.
There’s something genuinely sacred about our homes. Some may even call it our haven, that space we look forward to when returning to it after a long day. I don’t know about you, but how my home looks, feels, and smells is essential for me. There’s no question about it. And scent plays a huge role, allowing us to unwind, relax and become more rooted in our space. Sometimes, certain scents even take us back to those fond memories.
Memories and the Power of Scent
This is certainly true for me. The smell of jasmine, for example, will always take me back to our childhood garden and remind me of grandma’s home. Every countertop in her house had jasmine flowers; it was the first thing you would smell when you entered her home. Imagine that. It gave the home a different touch, making you feel like you were in the garden and freshening the air around you. But that smell has stayed with me since. I’m sure you can also think back to similar experiences. Today, I rely on my all-natural incense cones to take me back to grandma’s house.
What if you could recreate your desired space by choosing your favourite scent?
Keep it Natural and Toxin Free.
Well, you can. Many of us use candles and incense to lighten up our mood, help us relax and meditate, and give our spaces that homey touch. But have you ever thought about what goes into it? More often than not, these off-the-counter products are filled with toxins and chemicals that we come into contact with within our homes and even breathe in. Here’s the sad reality: unfortunately, we live in a world that exposes us to all sorts of harmful chemicals to our health. Just think about the plastic your food is wrapped in, the pollution we’re all exposed to daily, the personal products we use and even the food we eat that is filled with preservatives. The need to switch to all-natural products has never been this urgent.
The good news is that going natural doesn’t mean you have to give up the things that bring you joy. You can continue to enjoy a home filled with beautiful scents that aren’t harmful to you and your loved ones. Our incense cones allow you to choose natural alternatives instead of synthetic ones.
The “What” and the “How” to Incense Cones
Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of incense cones. They’re shaped like cones (duh) and like incense sticks; they also come in various scents using different raw ingredients. However, the smell of incense cones is slightly different because no-stick burns alongside the raw material, so some prefer it to sticks.
There has been an increase in the popularity of incense cones as more people have learned about their benefits. While many use it for religious practices, these cones have made their way into the daily lives of many. And using these cones is entirely hassle-free. All you have to do is light the coated tip of the cone, gently blow out the flame and enjoy the beautiful scent of your choice. Don’t forget to place your cone on a cone burner and ensure that the ashes fall on a fireproof surface.
Benefits of Incense
Time to recap. Incense has been used for centuries by different cultural and religious groups worldwide. The benefits are endless. Let’s talk about how you can benefit from the practice.
Many people rely on incense cones and sticks for religious rituals and to tap into their spiritual senses and connect more fully with themselves. But they don’t have only to be used as a religious practice – they can easily be a way for you to create the atmosphere you want in your home, bring positivity into your space, and purify the air.
Frankincense and Myrrh, for example, are known for their purifying qualities, and many use them to create a meditative atmosphere.
The Choices are Endless …
Many also use incense to relax and unwind – to help them sleep better at night. Incense cones can help you in many ways – from tapping into your positive energy to improving the quality of your home space and helping you sleep better. The best thing is that you have a choice of many scents to choose from, so experiment and see what you connect best with. Choose the fragrance that liberates you, or return to that place.
