The Andean indigenous Bursera Graveolens tree naturally produces aromatic hypoallergenic resin that grows in concentration with age.
The value of this sacred gift was clear from the first discovery of its lasting torchlight and beautiful scent. Bursera Graveolens lives for 40 to 90 years; after death, the wood matures four to ten more years before it falls. Only then it's consecrated as “Sacred Wood” (Palo Santo).
By respecting this cycle, we ensure the highest quality hand-chosen offerings. Each year we reserve a select portion of high resin Peruvian Palo Santo wood.
9 artisanal incense sticks.
The box is: 6" long, 2" wide, 3/4" tall
Indigenous Social Entrepreneurship:
Ceremonial ritual practices are at the heart of Incausa. A social business experiment that uses the profits from its productions to enable purposeful commerce of indigenous artisanship and heritage. Beginning as a simple sidewalk-table venture, the organization has evolved into a multi-national grassroots organization committed to social innovation.
Ensuring fair trade practices from sourcing to fulfillment, Incausa coordinates the creation of hand harvested Breu resin, Palo Santo, Sage, Chacrona, and Jagube incense in Brazil and Peru, accompanied by meditation tools handcrafted in Nepal.
Incausa is based in Brooklyn, NY.
Incausa partners with Indigenous cause initiatives developing non-profit trade posts and market placement. Using social entrepreneurship to reignite indigenous heritage, Incausa uplifts cultural values and builds sustainable opportunities.
