Tibetan tradition uses incense as offering to the gods as well as a healing tool. There are many special incense formulas made from plants of the high altitude Himalayas that are said to be healing. Their scents balance the emotions, lift fear and depression, invigorate, calm restlessness, and bring peace of mind and clarity. Traditional healing ceremonies include prayers, and mantras. Different scents are used for meditation, relaxation and space clearing or air freshening.
