India is the mythical land of fragrance, the origin of scented sticks (agarbatti) and also their largest exporter. The burning of incense, incense sticks and fragrance oils has an ancient and rich tradition in India. The production of Indian incense and smoking sticks is based on sacred Hindu Vedic texts.
In Indian tradition, the fragrant smoke is considered to be the food of the gods. For the three basic Hindu gods (Brahma - the creator, Vishnu - the sustainer and Shiva - the terminator), offerings of scented smoke are made several times a day. In addition to worship, the incense is used in various religious ceremonies, rituals and also in the cremation of the dead, where it is believed that the fragrance guides the soul of the person to Nirvana and also soothes the grief of the bereaved.
Nowadays, however, scented sticks are also used in India, as in many other countries not only in the East, to scent the air and make the atmosphere more pleasant. India is a mythical land of many scents, from the Himalayas to the lowest places, the conditions are most optimal for the growth of a wide variety of scented trees and herbs.
