Dao of Incense is the ancient art of appreciating incense and a way to enjoy scents to relax and sooth anxiety, and to calm down mind and body deeply and thoroughly. Incense has been highly regarded and used and for medicinal and purification purposes for thousands of years and across many cultures and religions.
