Joss sticks

Do you use them, hate them, what flavour ?

Get mine from the local Indian shop, Nag Champa is the current favourite and quite spicy.
Can't stand the ones that smell of cheap soap.

We use them. I am not overly particular to a flavour, but Mrs B is partial to Rose.

We also burn oils to scent the room.

I can't stand perfumes (as is my understanding from sandlewood), especially strong ones, since I get headaches from them.

See what I'm listening too.

Good choice.

All joss sticks (incence sticks) are based on sandlewood, it forms the main body that does the burning. The pure sandlewood ones are usually good because you can't disguise poor quality with some other incence.

isn't the word "incense"? it's weird to see a word being consistently mis-spelt by everyone in a thread...
