The ancient Egyptians used combustible bouquets for both their pragmatic and mystical capacities. Ancient Babylonians, Greeks and Romans used incense while offering prayers to divining oracles, and evidence of the use of incense burners have been found from the Indus Civilization (3300–1300 BCE) were sarsaparilla seeds, frankincense and cypress were used.
