For some reason I attract mozzies no matter what country I'm in. These keep them at bay and I can sit or work in the garden with a few of these placed around me and I'm protected. Good value too. I stock up every spring ready for the summer.
Keeps the mosquitos away. Incense has a really lovely lemony scent. Light them and pop them around the pots plants where you would sit and it keep the mosquitos at bay.
Seemed to work well to keep the biters away... Although I did use them in combination with nets and repellent. They are now part of my insect fighting ammunition.
Love these. We've moved recently, and although is terrific being nestled in the woodland, we were surprised by how many midges there are. Light one of these, leave it burning on your window sill, and hey presto, the midges are no longer a problen. Lovely aroma too.
I haven't used incense for a few years and I thought I would try again. I wasn't disappointed. The scent wafted through the house and lingered for quite a while after it had finished burning. They lasted for about half an hour per stick.
The benefits of incense
The smell of incense can trigger a certain response in the human body and mind. Incense can be used to encourage relaxation, aid sleep, promote concentration, stimulate creativity, increase motivation, assist in emotional release and even heighten sexual desire.
Throughout time most religions have turned to incense in response to certain rituals and practices.
Specific fragrances or ingredients can be used for specific purposes. Complimentary fragrances can be burnt simultaneously or several sticks of the same fragrance at the same time.
The art of burning incense is to fit the fragrance to the purpose and to ensure that the incense you choose to use is natural, hand-crafted and ethically sourced.
