Incense has been a part of daily life since the days our ancestors gained the ability to control fire. With the first toss of an aromatic branch in the fire we quickly began learning about the vast world of aromatic plants and their incredible properties.

Incense is the very root of medicine, perfumery, and ceremonial practices. Incense is still used today in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine and remains deeply rooted in the spiritual practices of many cultures and individuals.

Incense is the origin of our love for nature's exotic and mystical scents. A power and connection so strong it has evolved into today's multi-billion dollar perfume and aromatherapy industries. The very word perfume comes from the Latin word per fumum, which means "through smoke." 

Earth's aromatics enrich our daily lives and reconnect us to that which is beyond all words... to experiencing the infinite richness of the present moment.  In our universe of human sensory experience, smell plays a most vital role.
