What is Natural Incense Good For?

Natural Incense is known to be highly effective at calming mind, body & spirit. When inhaled, the scent molecules from the smouldering incense stick, travel by way of the olfactory nerves directly to the tissues of the brain. This especially impacts the emotional centre of the brain, the amygdala, allowing your energy to transform. You can then better tune to a higher frequency, steering clear of anxiety-inducing thoughts. The plant essence guides you towards a realm of expansive joy and liberated emotions, by relaxing the body and uplifting the mind. Facilitating a transformation away from stagnant, stressful routines.
