History of Incense

The word Incense is derived from the Latin word "incendere" which means "to burn". Man has been known to use incense since the inception of civilization. It was used by almost every ancient civilization or culture in religious rituals to please their gods and ancestors. After the discovery of fire our forefathers began to notice that every single thing on the surface of earth give off a characteristically unique odor when burnt. The difference between the aroma of a branch of sandal wood and that of a teakwood can very obviously be made out. So gradually man began to actually identify and enjoy the aromatic side of fire.

Ancient Days
In its earliest days, incense were used more in the form of raw wood, herbs, leaves, seeds and spices which was added to fire to summon an individual's chosen deity or spirit guides. It was an essential constituent in every primeval ritual as ancient people believed that these extraordinary fragrant products would be the perfect offering to appease their Gods and make their prayers heard.
