  • My first thought is to open windows and use fans to get fresh air in the room. Be sure to clean the area where the spices were used well.

    opening the window did not help and the house has been cleaned. I tried to put baking soda everywhere hoping it will work.

    Air out the area. Wipe down everything that can't be washed with OdoBan. Wash all items possible and add 1 cup Borax to the wash.

  • Wash the walls and ceiling, you will be surprised.

    I think if you do wet cleaning, it will work.

    I like the smell of incense and spices, but my mom is allergic, so I wash the ceiling and walls with detergent before she comes in. She usually comes to me from the countryside for a couple of days, and when she returns home, I burn the incense again and enjoy its fragrance. Actually, there are many reasons why people burn incense and I use it for different purposes. For example, I have incense that I use for medical purposes to get rid of headaches and relieve stress. When I do yoga, I also burn incense to create a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere. Besides, another benefit of incense is that it keeps insects away from your surrounding atmosphere, that's why the smoke is often used to repel mosquitoes.
