Incense sticks, also called agarbattis, are fragrant sticks used by people all over the world since ancient times. The evolution of incense sticks could be from the burning of aromatic woods in the primitive period. As mankind gained civilization and became more religious, this fragranced agarbattis played an important role in daily rituals.
Purifying the air with agarbatti is one of the purposes of burning it. The holy smoke prevents unwanted bad energy and bad spirit from entering the home. This is used for fragrance which symbolically suggests the presence of the deity and the love of the deity. The use of incense sticks is recorded in the Old Testament, the Vedas, and other ancient books. Agarbattis were used in many places of worship, including churches, monasteries, mosques, and temples. Incense was widespread in countries like Egypt, Greece, China, Japan, and India. People belonging to different religions used agarbattis in their ritual worship. During the purification of the atmosphere, this agarbattis served as an offering to God. Incense sticks release a soothing scent into the air, creating a peaceful atmosphere that aids devotees in gaining peace of mind. The purified and relaxing atmosphere aids meditation.

A good incense stick is made of natural ingredients such as camphor, clove, sandalwood, Kasturi-manjal, saffron, and sweet-smelling flowers such as rose, jasmine, green jasmine, oils of fragranced flowers, and aromatic woods. Another important material used in incense is medicinal herbs, which help to create a soothing atmosphere. The binding materials like Gum Arabic and Charcoal have oxidizers that help in burning the agarbatti.
The incense sticks burn evenly when the ingredients are blended in the right proportion. Each material plays an important role. Excess water in the incense mixtures will result in uneven burning of the incense stick. The right proportion of oxidizer should be used in gum bonded incense. Excess oxidizer will burn the incense stick too quickly giving less fragrance.
