The exotic and aromatic fragrance of passion fruit is always a firm favorite. If you are thinking about using this incense in your personal practice, here’s what you should know.
What is Passion Fruit Incense?
Commonly known as the ‘passion flower’ — a term which dates back to the 15th century — passion fruit is a gorgeous plant. Back then, Spanish missionaries were visiting Peru and dubbed the flower a symbol of the crucifixion. For that reason, this plant is often associated with Christianity and the well-documented ‘passion of Christ’.
Each part of the odd-looking flower plays a role in this metaphor. The five petals and five sepals are said to be the 10 apostles, not including Peter or Judas. On the other hand, the three stigma symbolize the nails that fixed Jesus to the cross. The five anthers represent his wounds and the stunning-looking flagellation represent the crown of thorns.
While there’s no denying the ties with religion, the plant dates back further than experts can document. The exotic and fragrant aroma of the plant has been used in rituals all over the globe since the dawn of civilization. We now use it as part of our yogic experiences.
In the 19th Century, the plant started to be used for its medicinal properties. This was most common in the United States. Researchers have always been keenly interested in the benefits that people can reap when they use passion fruit as a holistic, natural treatment.
Passion fruit incense combines a range of ingredients including passion fruit essential oil, vegetable compost, charcoal, frankincense, and bulk salt. When you start to use the majestic aroma, you will find that it allows you to completely relax and unwind at home,
