Pressed brick incense made with pure wood chip shavings for a rich smoke, and delightful aroma. These will transport your senses straight to the Southwestern U.S.
Mesquite: Grows in the desert southwest and Mexico at elevations of 2000 to 6000 feet. This slow growing tree is very hard and has an equally distinctive odor. Root wood is used for fuel, especially cooking, and is good for barbecuing and smoking meats. Native Americans use pods (seeds) for food and later as feed for livestock. We think that our incense is a unique blend of this complex fragrance.
Piñon: 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.
To use: Hold tip of brick over a continuous flame like a candle or lighter. Blow lightly on the brick until you achieve a glowing ember. Place the smoking brick upright (ember side up) on a heatproof incense burner, and enjoy the fragrant smoke.
