There is something magical and evocative in the fragrant fumes of burning incense. Perhaps it’s the fragrance, evoking long forgotten memories, forgotten sensations. Perhaps it’s the power of the smoke itself, rising and connecting you with something higher, like an offering to yourself and to your highest potential.
We’ve chosen to offer the unique Incausa incense, handcrafted in Brazil using all natural resins and plants, and featuring breu resin extracted from the almacega tree in the Amazonian rainforest. They smell divine, and last for at least 50 minutes (you can stub them out if you want a shorter burning time, and relight them the next time).
Breu is an aromatic resin extracted from the almacega tree in the heart of the Amazonian rainforest. Breu is used by shamans and indigenous people in rituals to ward off dark spirits and invite positive energy. It is also used in their healing rituals as it is rich in alpha and beta-amyrina triterpene which have anti-inflamatory, analgesic and gastro-protective properties.
We love the Brazillian founders of Incausa Social Entrepreneurship and their mission to support ancient indigenous traditions and handcrafted productions in South America, to find meaningfulness in profit, and mindful growth at all levels of the transaction: personal, community and society.
I found this beautiful incense in a store in Manhattan and was so happy to find it online @HUM with so many other meditation essentials. LOVE THIS STORE.
