People tell us our incense makes them remember all kinds of wonderful things...the perfume of the Painted Desert, a crackling campfire on a high mountain trail, the morning mist settling in a Northern New Mexican village. If you have not tried these fragrances before, we know you will find them very special.
The Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest built these community meeting places for traditional ceremonial gatherings. Traditionally, they are adorned with elaborate wood carvings and beautiful totems.
The Chiminea is a round outdoor fireplace once found in many Native American villages and haciendas in the Southwest. We decorate ours with the traditional designs of high desert wildflowers. Our Chiminea incense burner is packaged with one box Fir Balsam Incense.
These mud brick ovens have been used for centuries in the pueblos (Native American villages) of the Southwest. Aromatic wood fires still perfume Zuni, Ute, Navajo and Hopi communities today.
Alder mostly grows on the Pacific coast and is used for cooking, smoking seafood, furniture, and cabinet making. This deciduous moisture loving tree, produces flowers which develop into small woody cones that decorate the tree in winter. Flower arrangers use these blossoms often. We like the mild smell of this incense that compliments and reflects the Northwest United States.
Cedar grows in the mountains in the USA and most other countries. The wood is versatile in its uses. From aromatic chests to wooden furniture, cedar is a well known and loved essence.
Evergreen trees in nature, firs are tall, symmetrical trees with uniformly spaced branch whorls. Large cones are held erect. Most native firs are high mountain plants which grow best in or near their natural environment. The Fir Balsam incense is a strong refreshing smell of the high country.
Junipers grow throughout the United States. The wood is quite fragrant and is used for fence posts and long straight poles. Our Rocky Mountain Juniper is the source of many beautiful sub-species, varying in height from 6 inches to 40 feet. Some people use the berries for medicinal purposes.
Pinon is an evergreen tree that grows along the foot hills of Californian's desert mountains, east to Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, and north to Wyoming. This tree produces a cone that bears edible seeds harvested in the late fall. When burned, the smoke is a soft smell of the Pinon that fill the air in towns and villages throughout New Mexico.
If it's too difficult to choose between our seven different fragrances, try our sampler box. You get seven of each fragrance along with a holder. Fragrances include: Pinon, Juniper, Mesquite, Cedar, Alder, Fir Balsam, and Hickory. These also make a nice little gift for folks who like the aromas of the west.
