Tibetan healing incense usually refers to an incense found in Tibet, Northern Nepal, and Bhutan. The Tibetan healing incense is an important representation of the Tibetan culture. These incenses have a characteristic “earthy” or herbal scent to them. Tibetan healing incenses can contain 30 or more ingredients. Tibetan healing incense is different from other incense as it does not have a stick inside it, making the incense purer.
In Tibet, Tibetan healing incense is recognised as a way of treatment for sickness. This information can be found in Tibetan medical books which originated from the four Tantras (Root Tantra, Tantra of Enlightenment, Tantra of Instructions, Concluding Tantra). To this day, it is the central work upon which Tibetan medicine is based. Tibetan medical theory states that everything in the universe is made up of the five elements: (earth), (water), (fire), air), and (space). But only four play a role in the classification of our illnesses, except Nam-mkha (Space). Each element contains eight active forces and seventeen qualities. Further reading can be found in various Tibetan medical books.
WARNING: Never leave lighted sticks to burn unattended.
