Resins (Traditional Incense) are the purest form of incense that we know. Five hundred thousand years ago, our ancestors began to conquer fire and as they did so, they would toss various woods, shrubs, grasses, spices, oils, dried flowers, fruits, barks and tree saps into the fire. This was the beginning of using what we now call resins.
The uses of resins can be traced back to the earliest written records of almost every culture in the world.
The words ‘incense’ which means ‘to burn’ and ‘perfume’ which means ‘through the smoke’ are interchangeable. The reasons for burning resins and incense are as varied as the different cultures which use them.
Traditionally, the burning of resins is quite ceremonial and time consuming.
At the least, a proper burner, charcoal tablets, an ample supply of heat, proper insulation and time are needed to provide the most pleasurable aromas.
Most of us don’t have the time, but still long for the unforgettable aromas.
