Do you burn incense in your home?
To be honest, when I was younger, I used to think that only hippies burned incense. As I got older, I became intrigued by incense. Whenever we’d go to the local street fair, there was usually one (or more) vendor selling incense. You could smell the scents both coming and going. Sometimes the scents were so intoxicating that it drew me into their tent. My husband on the other hand would briskly walk past them because he suffers from migraines and certain scents trigger a migraine to happen. Sadly, I can only burn certain candles in my home so as not to cause him to have a migraine, or I burn them when he’s at work.
I think incense are an affordable way to add some lovely scents into your home. The incense sticks are very inexpensive and are available in a vast array of fragrances.
Recently I received to review some incense from the brand Wildberry Incense.
Wildberry Incense has been hand-dipping their incense since 1971 in their Ohio based home. That is a long time!
The brand prides themselves on using higher quality and more lavish fragrances, compared to their competitors. Their priority formulas keep their incense fresher longer, providing you with their long history of business and relationships with local retailers around the country.
The brand was kind enough to send me several seasonal and holiday themed scents to try out for myself. They even sent along a beautiful incense burner to burn them on.
The scents I received to review include;
- Rum Raisin
- Pumpkin Spice
- Simmering Cider
The scents are perfect for this time of year. When I think of autumn, pumpkin spice and cider come to mind. When I think of Christmas, evergreen and gingerbread are classic scents.
Wizard has scents of citrus scent with notes of Sicilian bergamot, sheer yuzu, coriander spice, silver birch, atlas cedar and white musk. This is another great scent for the season.
Rum Raisin is a great year-round scent consisting of buttery Caribbean Rum, creamy cinnamon, sweet raisin and warm vanilla cake. Yummy!
The incense burns nicely. I had no issues with getting them to light or to have a good, slow, long lasting burn.
The holder I was sent to review is perfect for these incense. It held the sticks perfectly and there was plenty of room for the ashes to fall on it safely. I also love the simple, yet pretty design with the scrolling design on the sides and little heart on the end.
As for the scents – WOW! They not only smell amazing, but some of them smell like the real deal.
I LOVE anything scented like autumn, and pumpkin spice is my go-to fragrance for candles, sprays and plugins this time of year. I thought for sure that one would be my favorite out of all of them, but oddly enough, the Rum Raisin is my favorite. NEVER in a million years would I think I’d like a scent better than pumpkin spice, aside from a real Christmas tree or lilac (those are my two all time favorite scents).
The Evergreen scent from Wildberry Incense doesn’t necessarily smell like a real Christmas tree (that is such a difficult scent to find). Wildberry Incense’s Evergreen reminds me more of a walk in the woods, which I used to do growing up as a kid when I lived in upstate New York. Their Evergreen is scented with pine needle, balsam fir, rosemary and cedarwood, which is why it has a woods/forest scent to it. It’s sort of a Christmassy scent, but for me, I see it more of a winter scent, which is great since winter is fast upon us.
Wildberry Incense sell their incense sticks in multiple quantities ranging from 15 sticks ($3.75) up to 1,000 sticks ($195). You’d REALLY have to love a scent to purchase 1,000 of the same scent. Ha Ha.
Their scents are also available with a display jar ($65 for a jar with 300 sticks). You can also purchase the jar separately ($5.50).
If you are unsure about a scent you can also purchase a three stick sampler for $1.15. I’m going to purchase a few more scents to try them out. I love that they offer samplers so you can “tray before you buy.” I think I’d mostly purchase 15 sticks of any given scent seeing as how I can’t burn them all the time due to my husband’s migraines.
Wildberry Incense sells more than just sticks. They also sell incense cones, burners, oils, powders, wax melts and more!
These would make great, budget friendly gift ideas for neighbors, friends, “Secret Santa” and other holiday gifts. They even have an Incense of the Month Club. The club sends you 100 sticks (20 each of 5 different scents). That is a fun and unique gift idea.
