The use of incense and incense culture

In fact, as early as the Han Dynasty, the ancients had realized the limitations of the fragrance of the single product and produced the concept of spice compatibility. It can be seen from the “Four Point Snaping Fragrance Furnace” in the early Western Han Dynasty that Hexiang was already in a desire at that time. After the Han Dynasty, the level of spices continued to improve, and the types of fragrant recipes became increasingly richer. Until Ming and Qing, Hexiang has always been the mainstream of traditional fragrance. Only in modern times, incense culture has been declining, and this backward situation has appeared today.


Traditional incense is not only very sophisticated in terms of spices, but also has very strict requirements for the processing of spices. “It is difficult to find the effect if it is not too much, but it is too much to fight against loss.” There are similarities between the formula of spices and Chinese medicine, but there are many differences. The same spice is often used in different incense methods. Generally speaking, the purpose of making incense materials is to go to its impurities, which is convenient to use, and the other is to guide Shunzhi and reason. Proper formulation can enhance the medicinal properties of incense materials, make full play to the effect, and eliminate the possible toxic and side effects; in addition, you can use a specific method to use a specific method to change the drug properties of the incense material according to the requirements of the compatibility.


There are many specific methods of processing, such as: repair, steaming, cooking, speculation, burning, artillery, roasting, flying, etc.
