Indian incense

Indian incense

India is also referred to as the “mother of scents”, as no other country in the world has such an abundance of fragrant flora. For this reason, India also has a highly developed fragrance culture. For millennia, fragrances in the form of incense have intertwined religious life and the art of healing. When you travel through India you are constantly accompanied by scents, on every street corner you can find a wide variety of incense products. Fragrances in India are used not only as sacrifices for the gods, but also to increase sensual pleasure. The most widely used are incense sticks, which are made by hand from exceptional, finely pulverized plant parts such as sandal, benzoin, vetiver or patchouli, a binder (e.g. arabic gum) and fuels (saltpeter, coal dust).
