Our Benzoin tree resin comes to us from the island of Sumatra and the vanilla notes smell amazing. Sometimes referred to as Styrax, Benzoin has been said to aid in bringing about peace of mind, good luck and to purify the home. Generally considered a protective incense against malignant forces, it can be especially useful before and during astral travel to prevent entities from attaching. There is even mention of it in a few of Nostradamus' works.
Our resins burn best when used on a charcoal disc available here
Before incense sticks were available, ancient man used resins. It was a direct way to connect with Gaia/Mother Nature and her beautiful offerings (those of plants, herbs, roots, flowers and resins).
