In our culture, INCENSE is usually thought of as a fragrant smoke used in church ceremonies. The possible applications of the mixture of essential oils, proteins and pure resins have, nevertheless, been known to be far more comprehensive than that – and for over 2,000 years already. Thus, in traditional Chinese medicine, INCENSE has been an important remedy and works against e.g. infections and inflammatory skin infections. It has also been used successfully in aromatherapy.
