Yes, when it comes to eliminating odors and making your home smell wonderful, incense can be a great alternative to scented sprays, candles and plug-ins.
Keeping your house smelling fresh is easy with incense. Incense neutralizes odors in your kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom
in a wholesome and natural way.
However, please remember that while incense can hide unpleasant smells in a variety of ways, it cannot entirely eliminate them. This means it won’t take long for the smell to return after the incense burns out.
The scent of incense varies, but is usually
spicy and strong.
Some cheap incense smells are too overpowering, making them only compete with bad smells, rather than neutralizing them. Japanese incense usually does not have these issues though.
Even though I like the smell of traditional Indian incense – a combination of flower, plant, and herb scents – sometimes I felt that it was too smokey.
As for Japanese incense, it’s less smoky than Indian, and the scents are nature-based, which makes it more refreshing.
The smoke produced by Japanese incense is just enough to get rid of odors and they leave a somewhat
subtle scent behind. I have tested them on several friends who have fragrance sensitivities and found it to be effective and reliable.

Does Incense Get Rid of Weed Smells?
Yes, incense does help in getting rid of weed smell to some extent. However, it does not remove the smell completely. It just adds a different smell to the room and masks the smell of weed.
It is important to distinguish two different types of smells when it comes to weed. Fresh weed should have a skunky, pungent, flowery, sweet, or piney smell. If it isn’t good weed, it can smell somewhat like hay.
Another kind of smell is that of burning, musty ashtrays, normally associated with spent bowls or old roaches.
By burning incense, you can temporarily hide both types of weed smells.
However, despite its ability to mask smells, incense does have its limitations. As long as your roach, bong, or bowl is still around, the weed smell will come right back just as strong once your incense has been fully consumed.
Also, be aware that the potency of the incense is different from one type to another. The more potent the incense is, the more effective it is in absorbing weed scents.
While burning incense can be a hassle, it is always better than not using any at all. Although the room may still smell like weed, it will be much more pleasant with the incense burning.
