To be burned with intention using an incense burner / heat proof dish over charcoal or with a wax warmer.

Burning loose incense is a unique experience. The endless combinations in every pinch you place onto the hot charcoal makes for a dynamic aromatic experience, as the proportion of herbs and resins in each pinch will be slightly different from the one that burned before. 

- BIRCH: The Birch tree is an elegant force of nature. The silvery white bark looks sophisticated and graceful but under this beauty lies a strong, willfulness to grow where nothing else can.

Birch is known as pioneer species because it is almost always one of the first species to regrow in places of tragedy, like habitats destroyed by fire.
As the birch is a pioneer species this gives it a symbol of rebirth, new beginnings and growth. It’s a sacred tree within the mythology of the Celts and is thought to have very protective influences.

- LEMONGRASS: Invigorating with a cleansing, fresh aroma, lemongrass has uplifting properties that promote a sense of joy and help release stressful thoughts. Its lemony aroma helps to freshen the air, clear the body and mind and support a sunny disposition. Its bright, happy scent helps energize and improve your outlook on the day and shed light on dark corners or hidden issues. It can also help to dissolve obstacles standing in your way, and transform negative energy into positive. Lemongrass is thought to foster openness, and is sometimes used to promote clear, open communication.

- JASMINE: Its aroma can lull us into states of heightened spiritual awareness. Jasmine gives wings to our prayers and helps us connect with our intentions and highest aspirations. Jasmine’s powerful and beautiful scent directly affects our emotional centers;  lifts our spirits, dispels depression, quiets nerves.  It flows through your anxieties, sedating and relaxing you while stifling worries about tomorrow.

- HONEYSUCKLE: Brilliant, floral, sexy, bold, mildly sweet & rich. Honeysuckle has been burned as incense since ancient times within homes and dwellings for prosperity.

- COPAL: Used in ceremonies throughout America for thousands of years, Copal has been essential not only in ceremonies but also for medicinal uses. It is a practice in native American culture from that is now known as Mexico, that when Copal burns it carries our messages to those not longer among us, and prayers to the Universe.

Three ways of burning loose incense:

  • With charcoal:

Charcoal allows to get started right away.
Fill a heat proof dish with soil or sand or use a censor.
Light the edge of a charcoal disc using tongs.
If you are using self-ignite discs you will see it emits sparks.
The disc will then light throughout by itself. It should be left in the incense burner until fully lit. It will soon glow red and is ready to burn your incense.

When ready, place a pinch or two of incense directly on top of the hot disc. A fragrant smoke will emerge immediately. Watch the herbs and resin transform with the heat. Remove burnt herbs from charcoal before adding more, add as much or as little as you need each time.

Burning loose incense is a unique experience. The endless combinations in every pinch you place onto the hot charcoal makes for a dynamic aromatic experience, as the proportion of herbs and resins in each pinch will be slightly different from the one that burned before. 

Use caution when working with fire and hot charcoal. Do not leave unattended.

  • With wax warmer:

Smolder on a ceramic wax warmer to diffuse incense more gently.

Do not leave unattended.

  • Direct fire

Pour about 1/3 into a heat proof bowl and light with a candle or hemp wick. The burn will be shorter but this is a quicker method.
Use caution when working with fire. Do not leave unattended.

Inhale and exhale deeply. Allow yourself to bask into the experience.
