Incense is the liberation of scent and perfume by use of fire. Historically, apart from being used as offerings in religious settings, it was also used by people to scent themselves and their environments. 

At this workshop, learn to make your own natural incense sticks or cones while you find out some of the ways that incense can be used to perfume our surroundings and reduce stress.
