Incense is good for you...

Apparently frankincense, a major component in many liturgical incenses, helps you relax and feel calm. I personally enjoy the "pine" incense we use at St. Elias and also like encountering what other churches use when I travel. If I go to a church where incense is not used it smells, for lack of a better word "bare" and something seems missing. I also feel at peace with the sight of it coming from the censer and ascending.

What do you like about incense? What scent? What aesthetic?
