Sage, Yerba Santa and herbal smudge bundles are all grown and sourced in from the San Bernardino Mountains in California. They’re handpicked, wrapped, and produced in a sacred way from the same group of women and men for over 20 years.
Copal Cones & Sticks
Our Copal Incense Sticks and Cones are ethically sourced, sustainably harvested, and fair trade. They are handcrafted and rolled by a small family-owned and operated business in Oaxaca, Mexico.
They were the first to make Copal in the form of an incense from their ancient roots and ancestors who traditionally burned the Copal Resin on coal. Watching their aunts and grandmother spend hours keeping the coal and resin burning, they thought there must be an easier way to do this. With this thought, they spent countless hours figuring out how to make it into an Incense stick.
The family is committed to sourcing the highest grade of Copal Resin from the Protium Copal Tree, a member of the Bursera Family. They are very proud of keeping the tradition of Copal alive and used for generations to come.
Palo Santo Cones
Our Palo Santo Cones are handcrafted by a group of artisans and healers in a small village in the Sacred Valley of Peru. The Palo Santo comes from a forest managed, authorized, and certified by the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (SERFOR) of Peru which is ethically sourced and sustainably harvested. It is then combined with sacred herbs and resins indigenous to the area to form it into a cone.
Our source wanted us to let people know that the cones are created with an intention of love in a sacred environment, with peaceful music playing in the background and infused with reiki healing energy in the Sacred Valley of Peru.
Palo Santo Sticks
The Palo Santo we source has a natural tree range growing from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico all the way down to Ecuador in South America.
They are sustainably harvested from the fallen wild trees, which are then replanted and managed by small agricultural co-ops.
We are fortunate to work with a family in Ecuador that is heavily involved and committed in reforesting the Bursera graveolens species to ensure it never goes into the endangered species category. In fact for every fallen tree that is harvested as many as 50 are planted in its place.
Additionally, and more importantly, gathering fallen Palo Santo has brought livelihood to many families in the Ecuadorian coastal forests.
We only support the sustainable production of this powerful beneficial wood for rituals.
