Breu Resin Incense Half-Dozen – Palo Santo
Finely hand-wrapped breu resin incense blend with Palo Santo. Extracted from the Almacega tree of the Amazon Rainforest, sacred Breu’s aromatic resin is rich in alpha and beta-amyrina triterpenes, which possess anti-inflammatory, analgesic and gastro-protective properties. These Incense Sticks are perfection – handcrafted with ancient wisdom and tradition from small traditional communities in Brazil & Peru. Breu Resin is the base of all Incausa incense blends and a true treasure.
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).
