While it may seem all-natural, burning incense in your home can equal the polluting effects of smoking cigarettes. Incense sticks contain the chemical benzene, which is also found in cigarettes, and this carcinogen is released into the air when you burn it. Instead, try oil burners for fragrant scents. Burners warm up scented oil using a candle and gently waft the scent without releasing any smoke into the air.
