Incense

We carry only the best natural incense from around the world – generally in raw, resin or powdered forms.

Traditionally incense is burned for a variety of reasons – meditation, health, cleansing…though many people burn it “to make the room smell nice”, not aware of it’s deeper affect! Incense has been used in virtually every belief system for thousands of years – and has recently seen a return in those that turned their backs on it for a time.

We regularly stock a selection of pure resin incense (marked below with *) and traditional herbal bundles. We carry one all natural blend (our exclusive Four Winds Smudge™) and one stick incense which uses natural binders (most stick incense uses industrial glue).

  • never leave anything burning unattended
  • extinguish with clean sand, water or both
