Incense logs made from Breu resin
Rich with ceremonial and spiritual association, the resin used to make this scent is extracted from a tree in the Amazonian rainforest considered sacred to the indigenous people. We like to light this incense to promote good energy or simply to infuse the atmosphere with a unique aroma derived from nature.
Many cultures throughout history have burned fragrant materials as offerings to spirits and to purify homes and sacred places for religious ceremonies. Breu resin, extracted from the Almacega tree of the Amazon rainforest, was thought to be sacred, with the power to ward off evil spirits and create positive energy. It’s also been used in healing rituals, as the therapeutic resin has anti-inflammatory properties. Incausa incense is made from raw materials and does not contain toxic carcinogens. These sticks burn slowly and can be used many times over. Beautifully packaged in paper handmade in Nepal, the set includes nine logs.
Handcraft traditions, ceremonial rituals and social consciousness are at the heart of Brooklyn-based Incausa. As founder Vinicius Vieira de Vieira puts it, the company is dedicated to the practice of “sacred trade” óusing profits from the sales of incense and meditation tools to support craftsmanship and heritage in Nepal and Brazil, Vieira de Vieira’s home country. What started as a sidewalk-table venture has grown into a multinational grassroots organization committed to fair-trade practices that support indigenous artistry.
