4 Unexpected Activities to Pair with Incense

You can enjoy the healing fragrance of incense whenever you want! If you have the urge, it’s time to light up. Still, it’s easy to get caught up in the same old routine.

If you’re looking for a few ideas on
when to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy, I’ve compiled a list for you.  Don’t get stuck in a rut. Variety is the spice of life, right?

There is evidence that novelty can boost your mood when you’re feeling blue! Incense is not exclusively for yoga and meditation. Let’s pair this sweet aroma with a few new activities.

1. Studying

I don’t know about you, but when I sit down to hit the textbooks or review my work material, I am stressed out! This is a great opportunity to light your incense burner or cone.

Let this pleasing aroma waft into your nostrils as you study. Stressing out won’t help you learn what you need to learn. It’s time to get your anxiety under wraps. Aromatherapy can be the solution.

Once you feel calmed down, you’ll be able to pay attention to the material at hand. 

2. Journaling 

For many, aromatherapy fosters a sense of inward reflection. When you’re feeling introspective, what are some activities that may bring you joy and provide release?

Journaling is a great activity that can offer real insight into your character. Expressing yourself during your introspective moments is important for self-growth.

Don’t push away these feelings. Instead, grab a journal and jot down your private thoughts and feelings. 

3. Talking with Friends 

If you’re getting a lot out of your incense, why not share your experience with friends? Don’t keep it all to yourself! Burning incense when your friends are over can facilitate deeper connection.

Everyone will feel more at ease, willing them to open up. Vulnerability will strengthen any friendship. When you have the courage to share your story with friends, you’re building trust.

Next time you have a little get-together at your place, burn your favorite incense.

4. Engaging in Creative Pursuits 

If you’re an artist, incense may serve you well. Certain aromas may have a powerful effect on your level of creativity. Jasmine, bergamot, and frankincense have been shown to elicit an artistic mood.

Next time you want to practice your craft, light some incense to induce those creative sparks. Whether you’re an entrepreneur who needs to produce original ideas or a basket weaver, use your incense burner to help unleash your creative potential.


When you think of incense you may think of yogis and spiritual gurus, but those are not the only people benefiting from aromatherapy! Thousands of every-day people across the world use incense for a handful of purposes- from self-reflection to creative intentions. 

If you love your incense, but need a few new activities to integrate into your weekly routine, I hope the content from my blog helped. If you resonate with one or more of the above activities, try them out and see what happens.

You can develop new interests and add some zest to your regular routine. Thank you for reading. I am wishing you joy and tranquility!
