Natural incenses are 100% natural products for use at home and in the sauna. Resins obtained from exotic trees when heated release an unusual aroma. They are used during meditation and relaxation sessions at home and in the sauna. The smoke from smoldering herbs, spices, wood and resins charms not only with its scent, but also creates a unique atmosphere.
In ancient Egypt, incense was considered a divine fragrance, more valuable than gold. Indian shamans and Arab medics believed that the spirits of plants that heal resided in the smoke of incense. By burning the right species, aromatherapy, which is popular today, was used in antiquity. In the Middle East, fragrant fumes are used to flavour and purify indoor air.
Essential oils volatilizing with smoke affect our well-being in a variety of ways. Depending on what resins or plants we put on the coals, a sweet, balsamically heavy or refreshing fragrance spreads. For example, essential oils from frankincense resin have a disinfecting effect, soothe skin diseases, rheumatism, and improve blood circulation. Smoke can soothe, stimulate or dull the senses, and deepen meditative abilities. It is worth recalling the traditions of our ancestors and preparing your own incense for both the apartment and the sauna.
