Zuni Sunrise Incense
Spirit of the SouthWest, Ceremonial and Healing
ABOUT ZUNI SUNRISE
Earthy, Grounded and Deeply Spiritually Healing, especially for those with a love for the traditions of the Desert Southwest. Contains Juniper, Piñon Pine, Sage, Ceremonial Tobacco, resins and herbs
Complex layers of Juniper (Navajo Cedar), Piñon Pine, Colorado Sage, and just a hint of ceremonial Native Tobacco. This is made with the variety of Juniper that is called 'Cedar' by the Navajo people, it is used during ceremony and spiritual healing work. This Cedar used in this blend is harvested locally in Colorado and on the Navajo reservation in New Mexico. This is a very rich and complex aroma calling out a depth yet lightness of spirit. I've been told by a Navajo shaman this reminds him of ceremonies they do on the reservation.
OUR INCENSE IS
- Handmade in Colorado.
- 100% natural handmade artisan incense.
- Made entirely from natural woods, resins, and plant materials.
- 100% Sustainably harvested, non-gmo or certified organic materials.
- No artificial ingredients, DPG or potassium nitrate.
- 100% post-consumer recycled packaging.
Handmade in the traditional 'joss' style commonly seen in Japanese and Tibetan style incense where there is no inner stick to support the aromatic components. Joss sticks are the most difficult to produce and embody the minimalist Zen aesthetic eliminating all unnecessary components for the purest stick incense available.
TIPS AND SAFETY
- Light one end of stick and allow it to burn for a few seconds and gently blow it out so the tip remains a glowing ember, then place in sand, earth or white ash filled incense bowl suitable to catch the ashes. Submerge incense stick deeply enough so it stands firmly upright.
- We recommend using an incense bowl filled with sand, earth or japanese white ash. When using white ash, even the submerged part of the stick will burn completely.
- After lighting there will be a tendency to immediately smell the smoke. This is OK, but it can also be fun to allow the incense to burn a few moments to allow the full aromatic signature to form and let the aroma naturally come to you.
- Relax, and meditate with the smoke, or allow the aromatics to fill the room. You will notice many layers of subtleties as the various qualities naturally co-mingle.
- Always burn incense in an incense bowl or comparable fire-proof container away from flammable materials. Never burn unattended. See our disclaimer here.
