Incense

Incense from India, Japan and Tibet; Incense is available in many different styles. Most people are familiar with incense sticks, but many people prefer to burn incense cones, because they believe it is easier to clean up the incense ash after burning.

Stick incense is generally available in Indian style (with a bamboo stick in the middle of the incense), Japanese style (no bamboo, and less smoke) and Tibetan Incense (thicker stick but no bamboo). The most popular incense is Nag Champa, followed by Morning Star and the Original Tara Incense and Green Tara incense. You can also find some incense burners as well.

You may have heard the term Joss Sticks, which is usually used to refer to Chinese incense burned in temples as offerings to either deities, the Buddha, or ancestors.

Different Types of Incense

As mentioned above, there are generally three types of incense; Stick, Cone, and Powder incense. Of these three kinds, incense sticks are more popular than powder or cone incense. But when it comes to incense, more popular doesn't necessarily better, as Cho Cho San incense is available as a cone and is one of the best types of incense around.

How to Burn Incense

It may sound obvious, but there are different way to use incense, as listed below:
  • Burn the incense for your enjoyment, either relaxing, meditating, enjoying a bath, or having a party outdoors
  • Make an offering with it to a particular deity, as in a pooja. When doing this, the incense is usually called joss sticks or dhoop
  • Just keep some UNBURNED incense in your closet or bathroom to keep things smelling nice and fresh
