    Incense are made from natural solid and liquid aromatics which release scents when burned. The aromatics used varies in regions based on what local products are available. Solid aromatics can be composed of woods and barks, seeds and fruits (i.e. nutmeg, juniper), resins and gums, leaves, roots, flowers, and some animal derived materials. Liquid aromatics are composed of essential oils (rose oil, cedar oil, etc) and artificial scents. The base of the incense is made of a combination of materials to allow it to have a slow burning ember: charcoal or wood powder for fuel, gum or other plant-based mixtures for binding, and Sodium or Potassium nitrate to sustain burning.
