Choosing the Right Types of Incense
Depending on when and where you plan to use your incense, you might even want to think about purchasing more than one variety. In addition to herbal incense there are different aromas, consistencies and even colors to choose from that are available on the market. Some of the most popular options can be found right on the Internet and include but are not limited to:
Considered the most pure form, granular incense has not been processed so it is a very popular option for crafters. The texture you can expect from this kind of incense is that of very small stones or pebbles. Cauldrons are usually used when burning granular incense but it can also be burned on regular stands, although it’s recommended that you mix the incense with charcoal before burning it.
These types of incense are pretty popular on the market aside from herbal incense. They can be burned in a small bowl, in cool steal charms and in a number of other ways depending on how creative you want to get. They’re small enough to keep hidden in a drawer or a book shelf in your home, and they’re affordable. You should be able to find a nice choice of aromas such as Amber, Bayberry, and musk. You can even find travel cone incense packs!
Stick incense is definitely the most popular type of incense you will find on the market. It is the most widely known, and probably the kind of incense you tend to think about yourself when the word is mentioned. They can be sold as herbal incense or aromatherapy incense depending on what products were used in producing them, but stick incense can be found even with no scent at all so that you can add your own. This goes to show the multiple options you have with incense sticks.
Another popular option of the different types of incense available on the market is powder incense. This is because it is versatile like granule varieties but it’s also finer. They are commonly used to do rituals and spells in the Wiccan community but they are useful for anyone who wants to find a new way of adding their favorite scent to their homes or other personal spaces.
