The history of incense begins more than 6000 years ago in Mesopotamia and Egypt and is considered one of the first fragrant materials to have been used by humans. Burning incense clears the energy of the space and makes the environment sacred, and the Nepalese use incense during prayer, meditation, and ceremonies. Each scent supports different ceremony goals while bringing relaxation and mindfulness.
