Smelly Sticks

Following up on my last night post with one of the smelly sticks photos. They burn very slow, with some smoke coming off them and have one of those mysterious smells. There are also burning candles around (not pictured), so maybe the smell from candles mixes up with this smell and produce this interesting flavor.

    The title made me laugh, these joss sticks definitely tickle your nose if one is not used to it. They’re meant to symbolise offerings wafting up to heaven : )
