Burning incense and smudge sticks is a great way to improve your environment, ground yourself and bring beautiful fragrances to your space. But always remember to stay safe:

  • use an incense burner or stand. This will help contain the burning incense and its ash.

  • place incense holders on a fire and heat resistant surface.

  • never leave burning incense unattended.

  • always burn incense in a well-ventilated area.

  • keep lit incense out of reach from children and pets.
