The story behind
Since the hallowed times of Tabernacle and Temple of Jerusalem, our ancestors have burned incense to perfume their offerings to greater powers and to align their minds during daily liturgy.
A vital commodity of the ancient world, incense’s varied uses included the flavouring of wine and ingredient for many medications. Of course, its base role was to be burned for a fine aroma, and people travelled thousands of kilometres, skirting vast trade routes across land and sea to acquire myrrh, frankincense and more.
The ancient incense route was a network of major trade lines connecting the European world with the Eastern and Southern corners of the world. And while this route was best-known for incense, it was also graced by other luxury goods like gold, copper, fine art and silks.
In the modern day, our home is our temple. And we desire to have our temple smelling fragrant at all times. A refined aroma portrays a refined taste. In this attention to detail, we burn incense to unlock its powerful aromatic beauty and channel it into the positivity of our personal and internal temple.
