About this title:

Synopsis: Discover the healing properties of incense. Unlock the secrets of this ancient form of "aromatherapy" and experience its many benefits. Discover which is the right incense to achieve your goal, whether it's cleansing the atmosphere, fostering relaxation, energizing your system, relieving insomnia, or improving your sex life. Comes with specific herbal formulas, and instructions for preparing the incense-burning vessel, ceremonies, and games. 224 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 11.

Review: Incense burning has been part of rituals and ceremonies for thousands of years. Though its use in the Far East has never waned, the practice was largely overlooked in the West until recently. Now that its healing properties have been rediscovered, many people utilize these aromatic substances to cleanse the atmosphere, to reduce stress, to renew energy, even to help insomnia or to stimulate creativity. The Complete Incense Book draws upon traditions throughout world history, blending historical survey with a rundown of incense plants, recipes, and instructions for preparing vessels. Though there's a fair amount of text to wade through, the rewards are many as narratives evoke the spirits of the Druids, the gardens of Babylon, the Oracles of ancient Greece, the mysticism of Arabia, and many other incense-loving cultures. And the recipes have alluring names like "Morning of Happiness," "Breath of the Soul," "Game of the Elves," and "Kingdom of Angels." --Amy Handy
