Stemming from the Latin word incendere (‘to burn’), incense refers to an aromatic arrangement of natural fibers—think resin, wood, and herbs—shaped into sticks, spirals, and cones. The practice of burning incense is an ancient art, with many historians tracing the activity back to classical Egypt and parts of Asia. At the time, ritual incense was used by priests as an offering to the gods and sacred incense was used by the religious as a part of their worship.
