Incense logs made from a blend of palo santo and Breu resin
The slightly sweet scent of palo santo wood, from the tree of the same name, combined with rich resin from the breu tree, transforms the energy of a space with a unique aroma. We love how the shavings of palo santo wood are sprinkled over the still-wet incense sticks, creating the speckled look and enhancing the woody aroma.
Many cultures throughout history have burned fragrant materials as offerings to spirits and to purify homes and sacred places for religious ceremonies. The palo santo scent dates back to the Inca Empire and is linked to shamanic rituals. Breu resin is extracted from a tree in the Amazon and is said to be soothing for colds, asthma and arthritis. Once the tree has fallen, it’s between four and 10 years before the wood becomes aromatic and is consecrated as holy. 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.
