I hate incense, I have a really strong sense of smell so anything too overpowering makes me feel a bit nauseous.


Some of them can be, Nao Champa is one in particular that is very strong. I have some friends that have the same issue so i can't burn it before they come over.

Nothing else is strong enough to overpower the smell of weed, cigarettes, hooker sweat, and shame. So yes, I burn incense.

Nah, not really. My mother used to when I was younger and I couldn't stand the smell. I do burn candles a lot, though.

I'll burn a little now and again, too much can make me sick.

My grandmother loves to burn a lot of it to cover up her smoking...as if no one knows she smokes or something.

I burn some when I talk to my old man. I'm not a believer, but it strangely does make me feel more connected.

I love incense and burn it regularly to keep my bedroom feeling relaxing and sumptuous. I prefer Nag Champa and then dragonsblood, stick or cone-it doesn't matter.However,a brazier w/ charcoal (you use resin incense) leaves a scent that lingers for hours.

I am curious to see how many here burn incense on a regular bases like i do.
I have a basic "alter" set up on my desk, a plate with a 4 stick circular holder set in the center of the plate.
I find myself once every couple of days burning Dragons Blood, Frankincense, Nao Champa, Sage, and a few others.
I find it makes the room relaxing, and smell pleasant. Some incense in my book works better then scented candles and has the added bonus of protection, luck, etc (if you believe in that sort of thing).
The only downside is if you burn it regularly you do have to dust off the surface you use it on.
I use stick incense, anyone here use cones or other alternatives?
I am pretty spiritual and heavily open-minded, so some of it is for that purpose.


I used to use it on a regular basis (stick & cones) just for the smell & aromatherapy. I don't use it as often anymore as it aggravates my lungs/allergies.
