Distinguish between natural incense and chemical incense

In addition to spiritual purposes, using clean incense or not also greatly affects physical and mental health. Incense smoke with scents and compounds can follow the breath, go directly into the body. Therefore, understanding and choosing a natural incense is extremely important.


Although natural incense and chemical flavor have the same appearance, but due to the different composition, there are significant differences in effectiveness, price, etc. So how do we distinguish between natural incense and chemical incense?



Distinguishing natural incense and chemical incense through materials

The ingredients inside an incense stick usually include a bamboo sticks, wood powder and joss powder. Any chemical component that appears in these three ingredients makes the incense unclean and adversely affects the health of the user.


You can easily recognize with the eye whether a bamboo sticks is dyed chemically or not. When you smell it, you can catch a glimpse of a strange smell if the bamboo sticks is impregnated with anti-mold agent. Usually, clean incense brands choose not to dye the base of the incense sticks and dry natural bamboo sticks in the sun for better preservation. At the same time, this way also increases the aroma and natural aroma of incense.



The most important is wood powder. The scent of incense comes from the powdered ingredients that are mixed inside (ground from tree resin, pure bark). When burned, the essential oil in the powder gives off a very gentle natural fragrance. This brings a feeling of comfort and relaxation when using clean incense. On the contrary, if not observant, many customers will be deceived by the strong aroma, sneeze, and smoke of chemical incense. Because if wood powder is a natural material, pure essential oil is available, there is no need to add scent and color.



Natural powders such as agarwood, cinnamon, eucalyptus or clean herbal incense ... all need a binder to be compressed into tree incense. Joss powder is most used in the production process of clean incense.

As for the types of freckles, withered beans, Joss powder is replaced by an industrial binder and is also added with phosphoric acid (H3P04), sulfur, and potassium nitrate (KNO3) with a concentration of 85%. These chemicals satisfy your desires and at the same time give you headaches, not used to vomiting.



Look at the appearance

As the raw materials are crushed and stirred during the production process, the characteristics of the material are not visible in the finished incense. Therefore, it is difficult to judge the quality of incense from its appearance. Generally speaking, most of the natural incense color is gray (matte color, not brilliant), the relative weight is heavy, and the surface is slight.


Chemical incense is often dyed to produce a beautiful color, with chemical additives to make its surface smooth and clean. In addition, observe the smoke produced when burning incense. Natural incense burning out of the smoke is basically green and white, and chemical incense smoke is mostly blue-cyan.



Smell the aroma

Tasting the smoke produced when burning incense is the most direct and more reliable method of identification. However, it requires a high level of experience for the connoisseur. Some people use chemical incense for a long time and unknowingly form the wrong olfactory habits, mistakenly believing that chemical incense smells good. Therefore, there must be a process of learning and experiencing natural incense, accumulating experience, and re-cultivating the correct incense identification ability.
