Also, incense was burned to kill germs and bacteria to prevent the spread of disease. Certain aromas also calm the mind and aid breathing. Which is why incense benefits meditation. The incense trade, especially the trade of Frankincense and Myrrh, began during the 1st millennium B.C. in Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Eastern Mediterranean, and Middle East.
