From the practical concerns about fire hazards to health or allergy issues, there are many reasons why individuals cannot use incense or candles during spiritual practices. Since scent is such a powerful sense and one that can conjure up memories faster than any other, it’s important that this sense is involved in spiritual practice. There are plenty of ways to do this, which don’t involve the traditional incense and candles. I’m looking for essays ranging from first person accounts of working with alternatives to “how to” articles about creating your own variations on incense and candles in ritual.

It is my hope that the articles and essays contained within this volume will help those who cannot use incense or candles for a variety of reasons with a focus on allergies and health concerns, for themselves or their family members, including pets. (For example: Parrots have very sensitive respiratory systems and it’s best not to burn scented candles or incense around them, so in order to respect and help our feathered family members, we need to choose alternatives for incense and candles.)
