Rituals: Incense....


Incense holder
Incense in a shell
Incense and the Dark Side of the Moon :)

Like a good cup of tea, I swear a stick of Nag Champra Incense can make everything okay. Even after a really stressful day 12 hour shift in A&E, the ritual of lighting an incense stick is enough to mark the end of work and the beginning of home life. Bliss!!

Hope everyone has had a magical valentines day xx

I couldn't agree more... incense keeps me sane and grounded.

I burn rosemary twigs as incense. I even stick them into the hole of the incense holder. Love the smell.

I couldn't, wouldn't won't live without my Nag Champa. It's burning as we speak Gabi. You should be able to pick up the fragrance from where you are...

Oh! This is why I love your blog the most!
Not only for the beautiful bohemian images, but also for posts like this!
I love incense - quality incense. And good old Nag Champa is my "go to'.
I hear so many people today who complain and say they "hate incense" - it makes me sad.
It's as you say, "a ritual", a disconnect from the outside world.
As the heady, comforting aroma and smoke waft through the air, I feel a warmth and gentle euphoria like nothing else.
I make ceramic incense holders at craft markets and some people pass comment about how they dislike incense. But, when I see someone's face light up, pun intended ;), when they see them and then buy one, I feel happy in the knowledge that there are still, and always will be, lovers of aromatic aphrodesia like me... and all's well :)

Wonderful pictures and I couldn't agree more: Sometimes just the act of lighting incense is enough to let my body and mind know that we can relax and be ourselves for a while.
