Sandalwood Makko incense is a warm and woodsy scent handmade of Makko, a Japanese cedar, and Palo Santo and Sandalwood.
- Makko: Derived from a Japanese cedar, Makko is a traditional ingredient in Japanese incense making. Makko means 'incense powder' and comes form the Machillus thunbergi tree which is an evergreen native to South East Asia.
- Palo Santo: Known as “holy wood”, Bursera graveolens is a wild tree found in areas from Mexico to Peru & belonging to the same family as Frankincense and Myrrh. This tree produces incredibly aromatic and hypoallergenic resin that only grows stronger in concentration with age.
- Sandalwood: Sandalwood oil is obtained from the fragrant sandalwood tree, Santalum album. Approximately 10 species of Santalum are grown throughout southeastern Asia and the islands of the South Pacific. Both tree and roots contain a yellow aromatic oil and is used in soaps, incense, perfumes, candles, and some medicines.
Incausa is a Social Entrepreneurship located in Brooklyn, NY and is focused on collaboration with artisans living in the Amazon Basin. The incense is purchased directly from a small village in northern Peru and is certified by the Peruvian government.
A note about Palo Santo... Palo Santo is heavily endangered. It was important that we carry Incausa-brand incense as they work with tribes and farms approved by SERFOR protective services of Peru. Harvested only from fallen wood (opposed to clear-cutting) to ensure respect for the laws to prevent profiteering from illegal harvests.
