The ony one I'm able to get is frankincense, but I was wondering, do specific insenses specialize in specific things? For instance, can frankincense be used for cleansing of space, but can another cleanse space better or specialize in cleansin of chakras? Can I cleanse my chakras with frankincense also? If yes in which ways, like I do aarti?
Yes, different incenses have different specific uses, you can find lists online with just a google search, some of the blends might not have uses but if you know the herbs in them you can work it out; single-scent incense like frankincense or sandalwood is easier to find :)
Just googled aarti there and yes it looks like the two practices would translate very well, I think I've even seen a ceremony like that being performed, for some reason I have a clear image of someone scooping incense smoke over their brow chakra :)
As someone who doesn't stick to any particular doctrine, if something seems like a good idea and you can see it working, it will work and be better for being your idea and your own personal practice :)

To add to what has been said here, if you're looking for books on the subject, Scott Cunningham's is fairly nice. It's very detailed and breaks things down in a step-by-step format to help explain the processes used. It also has lists of various incense blends and tables of incense correspondences.
The book is called: The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews.
I found a pdf version of it as well, if you would like to look over it. The web address is below.
