Q: Can you make a anti viral incense
A: In terms of offering it to the public, that could involve issues with regulatory agencies beyond the scope of this forum - health and safety, what would it contain, what would it aim to achieve, what are its risks, etc.
In terms of protecting your idea from an intellectual property standpoint from other inventors or formulators, you've posted under Copyright, but you may want to additionally repost under "Patents - Intellectual Property" for the possibility of attorneys who practice in those areas helping to identify issues you would need to think about. Good luck
Marcos Garciaacosta agrees with this answer
A: If you announce it as a product that can help against viruses you will run into a lot of scrutiny and potential problems.
You can make and sell any incense with any legal ingredients.
A: As others have mentioned, you would want to look into Patents for intellectual property protections rather than copyright. A trademark would also be useful for the product name and/or brand name. Some attorney do both patents and trademarks, but many do not. You may need two separate lawyers for these matters.
As far as consumer law goes, you would definitely want to be careful about making claims on your product that have not been proven. There are likely labeling and advertising restrictions that you would need to abide by. I would repost this in the Consumer Law section and see if anyone there can provide more insight.
