I LOVE incense.
I especially love the woodsy smelling ones like Sandalwood, thats my favorite!
My husband dislikes it, doesn't mind a lingering Sandalwood scent (who would mind that its divine!?), but dislikes passing by a burning one- he says it bothers his contacts.
I believe that...so I lovingly tell him to steer clear of the ones that are burning.
Well fast forward a few years and now he says that incense is going to kill us all that its bad for us and to just knock it off.
Im less than pleased.
I did a search on google and basically my conclusion is that its impossible to argue that breathing in any sort of smoke is good for you, however its not really bad for you either. I mean sure if you have allergies or any sort of respiratory problems incense is "bad" for you in the sense that it can irritate these affliction.
In our case though, its not bad for any of us...not "good" either but you know, we are a group of healthy beasts and burning a couple sticks/cones of incense in the evening isn't going to harm us.
So I call his bluff and he wont let it go, has morphed into the incense nazi refuses to admit he plain ol just is not a fan of it.
I love it too much to give it up! Sandalwood, mmm soooo good.
Do any of you burn incense?
