Chacrona & Jagube
Psychotria viridis, Chacrona leaf and Banosteriopsis caapi, Jagube vine, together are the fundamental ingredients preparing the sacramental entheogenic drink, Ayahuasca. We are humbled, in coordination with the rituals of Feitio (Making), to add the offscourings, customarily offered back to the soil, into this special blend of incense. (black paper)
Extracted from the Almacega tree of the Amazon rainforest, sacred Breu (“Breuzinho” or “White Breu”) is used in healing rituals, to ward off dark spirits, and invite good energy. Also known for possessing properties that could bring regression experiences and conscious dreams after ritualistic use. Breu’s aromatic resin is rich in alpha and beta-amyrina triterpenes, which possess anti-inflammatory, analgesic and gastro-protective properties. (Dep. of Physiology and Pharmacology of the Federal University of Ceará, Brazil.) indicated for respiratory trouble, stomach ache, liver malfunction, and mental acuity. (white paper)
A superb oil for spiritual upliftment, Palo Santo has a distinctive uplifting fragrance not unlike Frankincense which is wonderful as a natural purifier. Often used to enhance creativity Palo Santo has a balancing effect therefore perfect for use during meditation. 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). By respecting this cycle, we ensure the highest quality hand-chosen offerings. Each year we reserve a select portion of high resin Peruvian Palo Santo wood. (brown paper)
