The most effective incenses for anxiety

If you have ever visited a Buddhist temple, most likely, you have breathed in sandalwood. It is a perfect fragrance both to instill calm in moments of meditation in temples and as a perfume for the home.
Sandalwood gives a feeling of well-being and serenity. There are many varieties of this fragrance that can be used to achieve calmness. If the scent of sandalwood causes you to feel nostalgic, try to investigate your past to understand where you may have smelled it previously.
The use of sandalwood dates back almost 4,000 years to the ancient civilizations of India, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. The fragrant oil is obtained from the heartwood of the evergreen Santalum tree native to southern Asia.
Jasmine makes anyone who sniffs it happy! Jasmine also has calming properties and is believed to help treat depression. Thanks to its scent, which contributes to relaxation, it also produces a decrease in attention and a state of alertness, which lets you feel at ease.
This is why jasmine is used to improve mood.
The aroma of orange blossom, as well as that of the orange tree, has very effective sedative properties for all those cases of insomnia caused by anxiety. It also reduces stress and is a great cell regenerator. Orange blossom can help calm your nerves in the most stressful moments of your life.
When to use them?
You can use incense for anxiety when you feel the anxiety start to overwhelm you and you need to relax and find inner peace and balance. Imagine you have to be somewhere that brings stress to you like a work meeting, an exam, or any other situation that might generate anxiety.
Burning incense right before these scenarios will help ease anxiety symptoms and allow you better focus. if you want to rely on a specific day of the week and its energy, you can use incense for anxiety on a Saturday as its energy is all about helping you banish any negativity from your life while restoring balance and peace.
How to use them?
Using incense is very easy. You only have to light it up and let it burn. If you can, use the incense for anxiety together with some meditation for anxiety relief so you can tune in to the present moment and leave any worry and anxious thoughts aside.
Sticks or grains?
It doesn’t matter! Choose what you prefer! That’s the best thing to do! An incense stick is useful if you want to use it practically all around yourself or around your house. Grains are amazing if you want to let the energy of the incense spread and flow naturally at its own natural pace.
Do I need a burner?
If you are going to use grains yes, an incense burner is definitely a must. But if you are going to use an incense stick instead, you don’t need a burner. If you want to let the incense stick burn at its own pace, consider using an incense holder.
