  • Incense use can have positive and negative effects on health, depending on factors such as the frequency of use, the amount of exposure, and the individual’s sensitivity to certain chemicals.
  • On the one hand, incense can be calming, promote relaxation, and reduce stress. Certain scents, such as lavender and sandalwood, have been shown to have therapeutic effects on mood and can even enhance cognitive function.
  • However, some studies suggest prolonged exposure to incense smoke may harm respiratory health. The smoke generated by incense contains particulate matter, carbon monoxide, and other volatile organic compounds, which can irritate the lungs and contribute to respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, and lung cancer.
  • It’s important to note that the risks associated with incense use are generally low for occasional or intermittent use in well-ventilated areas. However, those with pre-existing respiratory conditions or sensitivities may want to exercise caution and limit their exposure to incense smoke.
