A holistic approach to detox touches upon a variety of aspects. Alongside conscious nutrition, body care, quality sleep and sufficient exercise, mental detoxing also plays a decisive role.
Incense is a tradition going back thousands of years and can wonderfully support a mental cleansing. It helps us find a sense of balance in our otherwise hectic everyday lives and makes us stronger when facing stress. It can also lead to a sense of equanimity and help us switch off and let go.
Whether lighting incense while cleaning, or to help get rid of germs, or to promote creativity, concentration, or relaxation, doing so will leave behind a clear and cleansed atmosphere in which we feel we can breathe again and recharge. Incense gives us back a sense of connection to nature, strengthening us anew for whatever life brings our way.
The most important plants grow right near us. Some have protective and cleansing effects, others help engender good mood, harmony, well-being, and relaxation, while others promote concentration, creativity, and self-confidence.

- Myrrh (Commiphora Marrha)
How to use
For glowing charcoals, it’s best to use resins, barks, and roots; flowers and leaves would burn too quickly here and are therefore unsuitable. To do this, sand is placed into a fireproof bowl. With its intense smokes, this technique is used for purifying rituals. Afterwards, the room should be well aired until the strongest aromas have subsided.
On an incense sieve
Burning on an incense sieve is a gentle variation to standard incense. With a candle serving as heat source, thei ngredients slowly glow and give off a wonderfully lingering fragrance. This allows the more delicate aromas from blossoms and leaves to develop to their fullest.
