Artisanal fragrant speckled resin incense sticks made from a blend of Breu resin and high resin Palo Santo wood. Palo Santo Tree, (Bursera graveolens), also known as Torchwood or Incense family, naturally produces an aromatic non-allergenic resin that increases in concentration with age. This Holy wood comes from trees that have already completed their life cycle and died naturally, from 40 to 90 years. Once the tree has fallen, an alchemical process of natural transformation that lasts between 4 and 10 years takes place. Only after that time has past does the wood receives its aromatic and healing properties and is consecrated as Holy Wood (Palo Santo).
Breu resin comes from the Almacega tree of the Amazon rainforest, also known as sacred Breu (Breuzinho or White Breu). It is used in healing rituals, to ward off dark spirits and invite good energy. Breu’s aromatic resin is rich in alpha and beta-amyrina triterpenes, which possess anti-inflammatory, analgesic and gastro-protective properties. The Department of Physiology and Pharmacology of the Federal University of Ceara, Brazil indicated breu for respiratory trouble, stomach ache, liver malfunction, and mental acuity.
Comes in a package of 9 five inch sticks. 9 Incense Sticks per box. Each stick burns up to 1 hour.
