Incense sticks made from a blend of white sage leaves and Breu resin
Sage incense, made from the evergreen shrub of the same name, fills a space with a naturally fresh, herbal aromaóthe sweet smell of plants and earth. Not only do we love the scent, but the ceremony of lighting incense connects us to a ritual that’s timeless, or evergreen.
Many cultures throughout history have burned fragrant materials as offerings to spirits and to purify homes and sacred places for religious ceremonies. Salvia sapiana (white sage) is an evergreen perennial shrub. Long ago, a tea from the roots of the shrub was used for healing and strength after childbirth. The smoke from burning the sage leaves has also been part of many Native American purification rituals. 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.
