Church incense is a kind of incense that is mainly used in churches. Most of the time, it has an intense, strong scent and releases a big amount of smoke. Therefore, it is suitable for use in spaces such as the priest choir; this is the place where the main altar can be found.
When we think of ‘church incense’, we often think of bishops in long robes, walking around in church with a censer to bring an offer to the altar. This ritual dates back to 4500 years before Christ. Back then, olibanum was used to please the Gods. The Egyptians also used it. In ancient times, this type of incense belonged to the most valuable of spices.
Incense grains or resins are natural products that are often used in churches. The most well-known kinds are myrrh, frankincense, olibanum, amber, benzoin and storax. Brands such as Gloria and Pontifical are also much loved. Finally, there are types of incense that are linked to certain saints; for example, to the archangels, Mary or Jesus.
