THE HISTORY & BENEFITS OF BURNING INCENSE The act of burning incense has been an important ritual since ancient times. Believed to have originated in Egypt in the time of the Old Kingdom, it was once used by priests for fumigating tombs. Incense has a long history of being used in conjunction with ceremonies, rituals, and spiritual and religious occasions. Incense burning was discovered in India and Southern Asia as early as 3300 BC. Used alongside worship and prayer, it was believed
that burning incense could ward off evil spirits while purifying the surroundings. Over 2,000 years ago, the trade of spices and incense played a significant economic role between the east and west. In those days, the Middle Eastern Incense Route wound its way through the Middle East to the Mediteranean region, where it was popularized by the Roman Empire. It’s been estimated that 3,000 tons of incense traveled this route each year.
