Not only does the incense help your mind and body, there are several other uses for the incense that you might not have thought of.
Rather than use smelly mothballs to keep your clothes fresher, take a couple of incense sticks and wrap them in some tissue paper. Put them in your drawer or chest to keep your clothes fresh smelling even when they have been in storage.
If your car does not have that “new car” smell anymore, you can take a few of the incense sticks and place them in your car. Put the under the seats or the floor mats and your car will have a nice fresh smell every time you get in it.
You can use the same method throughout your home. Put a few sticks of incense under your bed, or in cabinets in your bathroom. Or if you have some dried flowers in a vase someplace, put a few in there to give off a good aroma in the rooms in your home. The bathroom is an excellent place to put away a few of the incense sticks since that can be a room that, even when clean, does not always smell as clean as we would like it to.
Whether you use herbal incense to calm your mind and body or use it around your home the benefits are great and your entire world will be better for it.
