The Tree of Life symbolizes many things including wisdom, protection, strength, and beauty. Each part of the tree has its own special meaning: roots, trunk, branches, and leaves.
- This gift set includes 4 styles of incense handmade in Nepal using a combination of Himalayan herbs and ingredients such as red Sandalwood, Frankincense, holy Basil, and Nag Champa.
- All of the scents are great for yoga, meditation, relaxation and spiritual offering at any time of day or night.
Roots represent good fortune. They remind us of where we originate from, and also that our actions have deep meaning even if we cannot see them. Nag Champa is known as a sacred scent that purifies your environment and the energy within it. You may burn this incense to cleanse negative energy and transform it into positivity.
Trunk represents body and soul. It is a symbol of strength and a place that we can always return to and remember what we are made of. Sandalwood is a sacred fragrance with a lovely aromatic scent that is excellent for staying present and alert during meditation, which makes it wonderful for ritual and spiritual practice.
Branches symbolize knowledge and learning. Branches reaching out represent our human needs and explorations in arts, science, spirituality, and other outlets. The smoke of Frankincense is thought to deepen the breath and calm the mind and keep the user free from disease. It is also known to reduce stress, tension, and anxiety.
Leaves symbolize peace and prosperity. Just like the leaves of a tree, we are all different. Although we are all individual, together we are living beings on this earth that are connected and can coexist peacefully. Holy Basil is believed to help the body deal with stress as it is known to have an uplifting effect. The herbal scent can purify the atmosphere and encourage concentration of mind.
