When it comes to nice smells, there are a lot of ways to augment your home. Some use fire, others need to be plugged in and still others just sit. Incense is one of these options, but requires some foresight.


Like candles, incense requires fire. Burning incense creates a smell some find reminiscent of church, but there are many different options when it comes to the scent.


The first thing to make sure of is you are using a proper incense burner. If you are not careful, the heat can cause damage to furniture and carpeting, assuming, of course, there is no fire started outright. You can purchase incense burners in cool shapes as well to lessen this concern.


Make sure you have a space for the ash from the incense to land. As the incense burns, it will leave behind a trail of ash. The ash is easy to clean up if it is collected in a manageable way.


Air quality is deeply important to consider as well. Incense disperses larger particles into the air and can become dangerous for animals and humans who breathe it in in too high a concentration. Make sure you are burning incense in a well-ventilated room or space in order to keep the concentration in the air down.


When done safely, incense can provide a great, relaxing smell — just make sure to follow these steps.
