Kemenyan is a type of benzoin resin or styrax resin, which is a balsamic resin obtained from the bark of several species of trees in the genus Styrax. These kemenyan incense cups are suitable as offerings to appease local spirits, mountain spirits and land lords of buildings. Therefore, they are best being burnt in the exterior such as the garden, the back, the side and the front of your house to bring protection and remove blockages. The aromatic smell from kemenyan will instantly turn your garden into a cheerful and happy sanctuary. This is a must especially if your house or your neighbours’ are doing renovation with a lot of banging, which usually bring health and financial problems. Or when the occupants of the house suddenly suffer from emotional havoc, illnesses, mishap and accidents, you can burn them in the evening hours (after 5pm) around the exterior of your house, 1-2 pieces at each sector. When one feels that your sales and business is slow, you can burn these kemenyan cups at the exterior of your shoplot.
Note: The kemenyan incense is not suitable as “yang” offerings to Buddhas and Deities of higher realm. The kemenyan is more suitable to share your kindness and appease the beings from the “yin world”, which is a common practice among the Buddhists, Taoists and Hindus. These incense cups can burn in empty flower pots or in any pottery.
