Pleasant Aroma

The incense sticks have a very good and pleasant aroma which refreshes our minds. Just by inhaling it, mixed with surrounding air, it totally energises our mood and helps us to concentrate on our work. The essence of fragrances which comes out from the incense sticks are because of many botanical herbs and shrubs like sandalwood, clove, lavender, flowers having fragrances like of roses or jasmines etc.. Sometimes, artificial fragrances are also added in place of the natural fragrance. The fragrance reduces stress and brings positivity for others in humankind.

Sensory Neurons

The effect of fragrance over brain which brings us towards positivity and relaxing condition is also very irritating for some people because of brain senses. Inhalation of fragrances reaches to our nose where several sensory neurones called olfactory epithelium are present which allow the detection and identification of the odour of the sticks. The nose sensory neurones reach to the olfactory bulb which is present in the forebrain that relays the signal to other brain areas for additional processing. One of these areas is the Piriform cortex, a collection of neurones located just behind the olfactory bulb that works to identify the smell.

Why are Incense sticks inserted near the ‘Tulsi'(Basil’s leaves) plant?

The essential mineral elements for the Tulsi plant (holy basil) growth are nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur, manganese, zinc etc.. These essential elements can easily be achieved from the incense sticks which are fixed or inserted near the land of the Tulsi plant (holy basil). Thus, the chemical composition provides fertile soil which improves its growth. Therefore the basic reason behind the use of incense sticks is the presence of essential elements.
