White Sage and Palo Santo -9 Incense sticks
Sage - Salvia Apiana (white sage, bee sage, or sacred sage) is an evergreen perennial shrub native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, found mainly on the coast of the Mojave and Sonoran deserts. S. Apiana is widely used by Pacific Coast Native American groups. The Cahuilla women drink tea from the roots for healing after childbirth. The leaves are also burned by many for smoke-based purification rituals. A study at the University of Arizona in 1991 demonstrated that S. Apiana possesses antibacterial properties.
Palo Santo - Andean indigenous Bursera Graveolens tree naturally produces an 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. B. graveolens lives for 40-90 years; after death, the wood matures four to 10 more years before it "falls." Only then is it 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.
Incausa is a study in progress about consciousness and sacred trade to find meaningfulness in profit, for mindful grown, personal, community and society.
