The word Ketoret comes from the Aramaic root Kesher, meaning a tie or a knot. Kabbalah explains that Ketoret incense rises straight up, connecting our physical world to the Divine realm. It's essence is said to be a pristine yearning of the soul of man to come close to G-d.

The burning of Ketoret twice a day on the "golden altar" in the Holy Temple was the most prestigious and sacred of all the Temple duties, associated with joy, prayer, and protection, and symbolizing unity.

There is a deep connection between the Kabbalistic Sefirot of the Tree of life and the 11 Spices of the Temple Incense, according to the great 16th century Kabbalist Rabbi Isaac Luria, known as the Ari. 

The number 11 is of tremendous importance Kabbalistically, for it alludes to Da'at Elohim, Godly Knowledge.

It is said that of the five senses, the sense of smell is the most closely connected to the spiritual world and is the only one of the five senses that was not corrupted in the fall of Adam. A particular aroma can take you places.
