ls Incense harmful . . . ? Facts and more . . .

While lncense is a hugely popular tool in multiple cultures, religions, and households, it doesn’t come without risks. While most retailers will assure you that their lncense is NOT TOXlC, there have been some research done on the dangers, risks, and side effects of burning of lncense. . .

Unfortunately, some Incense is made using Compounds that produce Toxic Air Pollutants with various gases like Carbon Monoxide, Sulphur Dioxide, and Nitrogen Dioxide.  They also contain Volatile Organic Compounds, such as Formaldehyde Benzene, Salt Peter, and Styrene, which have long been known for their Side Effects. Some Incense produces Toxic Gas Pollutants, such as Ethylene Ammonia and Methanol which Are Harmful to both People and Pets.    

Cancer - You can make Incense sticks from either Natural OR Unnatural ingredients. Both of these can form small particles that are easy to inhale, EXCEPT when you inhale Natural Made Incense, this is just like smelling nature itself, BUT a 2009 study confirmed that some of these Unnatural ingredient small particles are Carcinogenic, meaning they can potentially cause Cancer.

The Cancers that are most likely to be caused are in the lungs and upper respiratory system. In addition to being found in the particles on the Incense stick, irritating and toxic compounds were found in the smoke as well, including: Polyaromatic, Hydrocarbons, Benzene, Carbonyls.

Asthma - The Chemicals and Gases like Carbon Monoxide, Sulphur Dioxide and many forms of Formaldehyde and Nitrogen are harmful for those who are suffering from asthma, as the TOXIC smoke can cause inflammation in the bronchial tubes and the same smoke can irritate your skin and eyes too, BUT - It Depends What Goes into the Incense.

For anyone who already has Asthma, it could trigger a reaction or make it worse. A study was done which revealed a link between the Incense burning and the appearance of Asthma-like symptoms such as Wheezing.

Something you may not know . . .

Unfortunately, people are not aware what Ingredients are used to replace the "Natural & Pure " Woods, Resins, Flowers, and other components traditionally found in Incense in all types.  It has been known by the Incense and Perfume Industries for many years that some Notoriously Un-Ethical Incense Manufacturers ADD TOXIC products which should NEVER be USED as an aid to Meditation, as part of a Prayer Ritual (Pooja) or just as a scent to make a home smell nice.

ln spite of the rise of machinery today . . .

 Many Indian manufacturers still use the manual process of making Incense by mixing Essential Oils, Resins and Herbs with CHARCOAL and OTHER SUCH BINDERS to produces a dough-like mixture or gum known as Masala. Makers manually coat a bamboo stick an adhesive then with the Masala mixture and roll it to shape. And after seeing some of the Incense Production procedures in India ourselves, we agree NATURAL HAND MADE Incense that DO NOT contain harmful ingredients which is why we DO NOT STOCK THE MORE FAMILIAR BRANDS.

Certain harmful ingredients and oils used to manufacture the Incense sticks, do produce harmful compounds when they are burnt. These are used because they are Cheap and Easy to Disguise.         They are used as "Fillers" which are used to "Bulk Up" and "Substitute" for Natural, Pure & Traditional components such as Flowers, Herbs, Essential Oils, Woods, and Resins.   

Halmaddi is a resin from a medium to tall evergreen rainforest tree in Asia and Australia whose wood is used for matchwood and plywood, it has become Rare and Expensive, so sometimes people opt to use alternative tree resins such as those from Pine and Cedar.   

There are Cheap, Nasty & Harmful lines that use Chemical based Products which cause BLACK SMOKE, but there are alternatives avaliable . . .
