amber resin
Amber Resin

This natural fossilized tree resin has been burned as an incense all throughout history. It's often collected by those who also collect Gold. It's considered valuable in many ways. Not only has Amber been used in perfume, but it's been carefully used as a folk medicine for centuries. Something a lot of folks don't realize is, that certain herbal medicines used throghout history had to be used VERY CAREFULLY, and in a SPECIFIC DOSAGE in order to work and not have a reverse effect on the patient. That's important to realize because certain things like Eucalyptus can be toxic in a high enough dose. Aside from this, Amber resin is also used in jewelry! There's actually a ROOM made using Amber in Catherine Palace! I feel like this stuff needs to be produced more than it's harvested and sold. It seems very valuable as a preservative and industrial asset.


black spruce resin
Black Spruce Resin (Picea Mariana)


This tree resin ( harvested ethically with respect to future generations ) is quite a unique fragrance. It's typically burned on special occasions by various cultures. Unlike other resins, it has an aroma that reminds one of a lager beer and hanging out in nature in Florida. That's probably because it's in the PINE TREE FAMILY! Did you know that Pine Trees were used by the Native Americans as medicine too? That might explain some of the phytochemical interest by those in their respected scientific field. Let it be known, researchers study phramcological gems like the ones produced by this awesome black spruce creature!


camphor
Camphor Crystals (Cinnamomum Camphora)


Camphor has an aroma almost identical to that of Menthol. You should know that these are PURE phenominon being discussed, and some of them have limits to the amount that can be consumed. They are saught after by people who know what they are doing rather than those who are careless. The quality here is industrial grade, so please understand its organic and pure nature. Camphor is harvested ethically from the Camphor tree. It differs from other sap scents, resins, oils, because it's more of a collection of compacted crystals.


copal
Copal (Bursera odorata)


Copal is one of my personal favorites. I think it's because it looks the most like Frankincense. To me it's like a cross of camphor and frankincense. It smells sweet, earthy, and seems to be something like Coffee in its essence, stimulating alertness. Unlike other resins or dried sap like gems, it's believed to be more nootropic in nature. Generally, these are burnt in well ventilated areas outside, perhaps on a hill-side or outdoor porch. It would be cool to have a little hut somewhere far out in nature, within the woods, with food, medicine, and other staples of life, as well as tools for survival. This reminds me of an episode of Strain Hunters. lol :)


dragons blood
Dragon's Blood (Daemomorops Draco )


It's just a name, although I'm not sure why it was chosen. This is a popular natural incense used by many cultures. It smells better than it looks. Looks can be deceiving. It's another tree sap which is gathered with full respect to mother earth. It has medicinal properties and has been used for centuries all around the world for its pharmacological value. I don't know a whole lot about it but chose to promote it because a company I was promoting was selling it.


eucalyptus
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus sp.)


Eucalyptus has many applications in aroma therapy BUT IT CAN BE POISONOUS!. It's a highly valuable and potentially dangerous scent. The use of this one should be done so by highly trained professionals only. Oils can be isolated from the leaf itself. This is easily done with a steam distillation system. It contains Eucaylptol which is an active ingredient in Listerine. It's also great for use in home made presticides and fungicides because it can kill certain fungi, bacteria, and keep nasty pest from eating your plants. The plant is a very important staple for modern industry.


frankincense from the bible
Frankincense (Boswellia Carteri)


Frankincense is one of the most historic incense on the planet. It's basically dried up tree sap or dried resin. It's prized by just about every spiritual walk of life there is. It was one of the gifts from the Three Wise Men given to Baby Jesus in the Bible story! The smoke is said to be "intoxicating", yes intoxicating... That's just what it's said to be.. It's great for burning during festive cultural events. It also has use in aromatherapy and other medicinal applications VERY CAREFULLY. Although I have seen documentaries where in Saudi arabia, people are greeted with it, and eat it like it's candy, or some type of sacred treat.


lavender buds fresh
Lavender Flowers Buds


The aroma of Lavender is supposedly great for depression and lifts ones mood. It has some sort of effect on the mind that causes sadness or depression to melt away into a warm feeling of contentness, people claim. It's a must have in aromatherapy and does contain medicinal alkaloids as well. The thing is, there HAVE been studies, where the effects of scents on the mood and vitals of human beings were monitored and that data collected, and the results analyzed, and they did find an impact! The citation for that statement is here: [ Knasko, S. C. (1992). Ambient odor's effect on creativity, mood, and perceived health. Chemical senses, 17(1), 27-35. ] It just makes sense to me. If you want to see for yourself you can just find something that smells awesome and EMBRACE ITS ESSENCE. I predict you'll encounter a surge of neurochemical satisfaction.


menthol
Menthol Crystals


Pure menthol is just awesome. It's extracted from Mint plants in its full form. It can be dropped into a cup of boiling water to permiate the air. The steam is wonderful for clearing sinus congestions. Keep it out of contact your eyes. This is literally, menthol CRYSTALS! You know, the active ingredient that's listed as the inactive ingredient on all your favorites like mouthwash, certain candy, even cigarettes! It's in over the counter topical rubs, and all sorts of things. I feel annoyed that not enough people realize where all these common industrial products are getting there active kick from. I also feel like someone might not like me saying this. The thing is though, all of this truth is just a quick Google search away. Wikipedia and scholar.google.com are just loaded with a wealth of information on this subject and many others.


myrrh
Myrrh (Comminphora myrhha)


Myrrh is a personal favorite of mine for its supposed "pain relieving qualities". Really? Phytochemical journals indicate an opioid-like ability of its chemical constituents. It literally interacts with opioid receptors located in various regions of the human body. It's great in tinctures or infusions with other opiate-like plants such as Kratom and Opium lettuce, in my opinion. You really need to know what you're doing or talk to a doctor first before messing with anything like this though. Myrrh is mentioned in the bible story of the three wise men, who brough Frankincense & Myrrh as gifts. I've referenced a good read on that in the citation section at the bottom. On a final note I'd just like to add that I try to promote only ethical vendors and want to see that products are ethically harvested because of the importance of earths eco-systems and environments.


palsanto
Palo Santo (Bulnesia Sarmienti)


This one has been traditionally used in Ayahuasca ceremonies. It's loaded with valuable phytochemicals such as terpens, limonene and α-terpineol. It's believed to boost the immune system and it also contains valuable antioxidants. Palo Santo has been scientifically investigated for potential Anticancer activity induced by its phytochemical constituents. There's just so much information that we know about botanicals used in herbalism. It's mind-blowing to think of the number of times I've heard people claim such herbal practices as un-scientific. The truth before us is hidden in plain sight. These days thanks to the internet, academic information is in reach of every single citizen. We would rather go through the middle man these days, than the actual source. :)


charcoal for incense
Swift Lite Charcoal Tablets


These charcoal tablets are Used for burning oils, resin or resins, sap, and any other form of natural aromatherapy. They are not for indoor use. They're more ideal for an outdoor area such as a patio or porch. Many of these items are very useful in keeping mosquitos and other pest away during seasons in which bugs tend to invade human territory.


White Sage (Salvia Apiana)
sage smudge


Almost every spiritual path uses white sage for some purposes. In aromatherapy, it's used to treat depression. There is some scientific inquiry behind this belief seeing as how it does contain pharmacological constituents. Some consider the oils to be oneirogenic ( dream inducing ), mostly because of their Thujone content. Thujone is often found in plants which are used for their oneirogenic properties.


wisteria flowers thumbnail
NEW! ~ Wisteria Flowers


Wisteria is one of the greatest scents you'll ever encounter. It literally fills the entire atmostphere around it with consciousness expanding awe. The scent travels far in the wind and attracts bees, butterflies, and other beneficial creatures.
