Natural Wood Incense
This Cedar incense is made with the all-natural wood of the Cedar tree. Burning of these natural woods provides a healthier environment as opposed to incense made with synthetic chemicals.
What does the Incense Smell Like?
Think of our incense as miniature pieces of firewood. Each fragrance is perfect for the urban dweller whose heart longs for the outdoors, and the outdoors man who would like to bring the campfire indoors. So what does natural wood incense smell like? Mostly people tell us that our incense reminds them of the past… family camping trips and s’mores by the fire, bonfires on the beach, Christmas Eve listening to your Abuela’s stories. For others the fragrance is the scent of calm and peace.
How do I Light an Incense Brick?
Our bricks are larger than most incense cones, making them a bit harder to light. The upside to this is that they burn longer and produce more incense. Hold the brick over a flame until the brick burns by itself. This will cause the brick to expand at the burning end. After the brick has stopped flaming, gently blow on the burning ember. Place the brick in the center of the censer (or incense burner), unlit end down. If the brick should fall over or is laid on its side, the flame may go out.
What is the Incense used for?
Many use our incense for meditation, yoga and relaxation. Some have a more practical purpose and use it to cleanse their house from unpleasant pet odors and skunk spray. We hope that you find what you are looking for and we invite you to try one or all of our seven fragrances.
