Finding times of calm and quiet is extremely important, especially in the busy world we live in today. Meditation can provide a safe space for personal reflection, which leads to personal development, which we all are continuously seeking.

In this post, we'll go over how to include incense into your meditation routine and introduce you to our range of incense that are made to help you on your journey.

Why Use Incense in Meditation?

The use of incense in meditation dates back centuries, rooted in ancient traditions and across cultures. Burning incense serves various purposes, from purifying the air to enhancing focus and promoting relaxation. The aromas and smoke from incense can act as tools to help connect your mind with your physical senses. Being able to set your intentions consistently during meditation will ultimately create a deeper connection within yourself and increase your ability to be present.

  • Prepare Your Space: Find a quiet, comfortable space for meditation. Clear any clutter and create a peaceful atmosphere by dimming the lights and playing soft music or healing frequency sounds if desired.
  • Light the Incense: Using a safe incense holder, light the tip of your chosen incense stick and allow it to flame for a few seconds before gently blowing it out. Let the smoke fill the room, enveloping you in its fragrance.
  • Set Your Intention: Before you begin your meditation session, take a moment to set your intention. Allow your desire to guide your practice, whether it's to find inner peace, clarity, or simply to be present.
  • Focus on the Senses: As you begin your meditation, focus on the experience your senses are having from the incense. Notice the aroma as you inhale deeply, letting it ground you in the present moment.
  • Stay Present: Throughout your meditation, use the scent of the incense as a focal point to anchor your awareness. Whenever your mind starts to wander, gently bring your attention back to the aroma and the sensations it evokes.
  • Express Gratitude: As your meditation ends, take a moment to express gratitude for the experience. Reflect on any insights gained and carry the sense of peace and clarity with you into the rest your day.
