We all have been witnessing lighting of incense and camphor in our homes as an age old tradition. If you think it is merely a Hindu tradition then it’s time to rethink. It is a tradition which has religious significance but much greater scientific significance. There will be no exaggeration if we say that burning of incense and camphor is directly related to purity of mind body and soul.
Camphor brings your mind to center!
Camphor is one of the most significant ingredients used to bring mind to center. It has an ecstatic aroma that not only relieves the muscular and nervous stress but also helps the mind to go deeper in to meditative state. The best way to make the environment pure is to burn camphor as it cleans the surrounding by removing the odour from it. Oudh/Loban/frankincense can be used as a substitute for camphor.
Create a calm environment with incense!
You will be surprised to know that incense play a vital role in creating a calm environment. They not only repel various insects away but also kill the bacteria and other microorganism leading to pure environment. Smell of the incense also plays a vital role in absorbing all the negative energies from the place.
