The Incense Bible examines aspects of spirituality and religion, health and medicine, botanical medicines, ethnobotany, and history of real incense--not the low-quality, processed, synthetic fragrances most people think of as "incense." This enlightening and entertaining book, written in everyday language and filled with photgraphs, examines why incense appeals to our sense of smell, of adventure, and of spiritual and physical well-being--and has for centuries. The book looks at the use of incense for purifications and cleansings, creative inspiration, meditation, worship and prayer, for inducing dreams and sleep, to improve learning and problem solving, and as a perfume for clothes, hair, and body.

Topics examined in The Incense Bible include:

types of raw incense, including balsam, cedar, mugwort and moxa, and white sage


safety


how the sense of smell works


the link between taste and scent


scent and memory


allergies and sensitivities


oils and flower essences for healing


how to make incense


incense materials and symbols


the use of incense in Egyptian, Greek, and Roman times, in Buddhism and Shamanism, in Israel, in the Catholic Church, in Native American sweat lodges, and in the African rainforest


and much more!
The Incense Bible is an essential resource for anyone interested in health and natural medicine, botanical medicines, and ethnobotany, and for anyone seeking to express their spirituality by reconnecting to nature
