The ancient practice of crafting and using incense therapeutically has been known for thousands of years.
These days, incense is commonly used as a way to make a room smell better or to cover odors. However, the roots of incense use reach far back to its original intended use where the ingredients were carefully thought out and prepared with the conscious awareness of the herbal botanical's effects. Incense of this grade is prepared in a meticulous way as to obtain a therapeutic value for the mind, body, and spirit.
When we inhale deeply through the nose, the brain absorbs and utilizes 60% of the oxygen available before the lungs even get a chance to absorb and circulate it to the rest of the body.
Having an incense that is crafted out of medicinal mushrooms, tree wood, resins, flowers, and other therapeutic botanicals delivers nutrients directly to the brain and upper glands which leads to a cascade of positive effects that:
- Protect the lungs and the brain with anti-microbial/anti-fungal compounds bolstering immunity
- Strengthen ones biofield/vital energy
- Amplify the bodies energies and induce meditative brainwave states
Incense starts as a dense material substance (yin) that when burned, transforms into a more etheric and expansive expression (yang).
As we sit in mediation and form a solid triangular shape with our body, the Qi in our body begins to sink at the base of the triangle which starts the yin process of grounding into ourselves allowing us to feel more solid in ourselves and self-aware.
As the kidney pulls oxygen down into the lower dantian and kidneys, the lungs begin to exhale harmonizing metal and water, aether and matter.
As the body becomes more yin, the mind is able to release and become more yang, free, and expansive. The mind and body then harmonize as the essence of the plant materials enter the brain and the lungs, offering emotional and physical support to the mind and body.
The incense helps to encourage us to burn up, transform, and release inside ourselves that which is not serving us. To take a moment for self care and reflection. To sit in the eye of the storm peacefully when everything is moving so quickly around us.
The transformative quality of releasing the stored, unwanted energy from the denseness of the body creates space that we can choose to fill with new refreshing energy, peace, or whatever we choose to create for ourselves.
Medicinal mushrooms found in our incense help support the lung energy during meditation. The lungs are very important as they circulate vital energy throughout the body and regulate internal metabolism. Mushrooms are known in nature as composters of the forest floor which act like the lungs of the earth, helping the forest to breath.
The lungs and kidneys work together and generate each other which is the foundational process of regulating internal and external energy and developing vitality.
This incredibly special incense is mindfully created with the healing properties of all the botanicals in mind. They are transformed in a way as to protect the delicate naturally occurring oils and the ingredients are combined as you would see in our herbal extract formulas.
Pure essential oils and perfumes that are commonly used in incense production have toxic byproducts when they are burned as the chemistry of the oils is not well understood by mainstream producers. The ingredients must have time to mature and amalgamate. The consciousness of how those herbs should combine must be present in order to create an incense that soothes and nourishes the mind/body/spirit vs activating fight or flight by polluting the lungs.
We are proud to offer you some of the highest grade, pure, medicinal incense available anywhere. There are highly guarded family recipes passed down and refined over the generations.

I purchased this Special Sandalwood for the Holiday Season of 2020. As mentioned in the write up on this special grade sandalwood the incense DOES have an intoxicating aroma. My Mind/Body/Spirit felt like it merged into an indescribable lightness when meditating with it. It is very clean, no harshness on lungs when burned. A special incense for special occasions!
