Incense Bricks

By Sarah on March 5th, 2014

Last week we featured the beautiful hand made incense burners so today we thought we should go into a bit more detail about the uniqueness of the incense bricks. Unlike a perfume or chemical that makes your space smell nice these bricks are made from natural wood. No trees are cut down or damaged for this production. Dead and fallen trees are used to produce the tiny burning incense bricks in an array of fragrances (Pinon, Hickory, Mesquite, Fir Balsam, and Juniper). The bricks scent your house or office best when they are smoldering like a log on a fire and not flaming.

How to Light the Incense Brick

Hold the brick (or cone) over the flame until it begins to burn by itself. Remove the brick from the flame and gently blow on the ember, like you would do if you were starting a bonfire. Place the brick, burning side up, in the middle of the clay baseplate. Cover the plate and brick with the Log Cabin or Teepee. The brick will burn for approximately 20 minutes and the smoldering brick will infuse your room.

Incense From the West

By Sarah on February 24th, 2014

It is said that a smell can bring back a memory or trigger a feeling. That is probably the reason we fell in love with these hand crafted incense burners and wood burning bricks. The burning bricks bring us back to those memorable summer bonfires or the weekend at the cottage cozied up by the fire. The incense burners, the teepee or log cabin, are hand crafted with rich red New Mexico clay and are painted by hand. The incense bricks that smolder inside the little houses are made from actual trees giving your room a wonderful fragrance.

FYI. the trees used are already fallen and dead. No trees were harmed in the making of these little bricks.
