Incense is an increasingly popular tool for restoring calm, cleansing atmospheres and enhancing spiritual practices such as meditation. This book is a simple-to-follow introduction to the subject, packed with lots of ideas to try at home. It is written both for complete beginners and for those with some notion about using incense but who want to know much more. A senior aromatherapist and lifelong student of fragrances, Jennie Harding is ideally qualified to write this unique book.

Jennie introduces twenty-five key ingredients in the preparation of incense and describes how to use them. There are many ways of burning incense: from the great iron burners of eastern temples to smaller charcoal burners and joss sticks. Jennie describes how to make a simple burner of your own to use at home and explains which incense to burn to purify, for calm, while meditating, to celebrate, to create an atmosphere or simply to give pleasure.

This book includes archaeological evidence for how incense has been used in the past. It takes us on an exotic aromatic trip through the great civilizations.
