Scent profile– Piñon:
An evergreen tree that grows along the foot hills of Californian’s desert mountains, east to Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, and north to Wyoming. This tree produces a cone that bears edible seeds harvested in the late fall. When burned, the smoke is a soft smell of the Pinon that fill the air in towns and villages throughout New Mexico. Piñon smells like winter in Northern New Mexico. Fires burning in each home, smoke drifting lazily out the chimneys while the snow glistens crisply in the shadows. Piñon is our original fragrance and remains our most popular. It is best described as the smell of a campfire or hearth fire. It has a smooth Southwestern aroma and has a distinctive fragrance that is unlike other pines. Piñon trees also produce a nut that is a local treat.
Materials: The Piñon incense is all natural and does not have any added fragrance. Incienso de Santa Fe do not cut down trees to make their products. They use trees that are already dead.
How to light an incense brick/cone: These bricks/cones have a larger surface area than most incense bricks, making them harder to light. The upside to this is that they burn longer and produce more incense. Hold the brick over a flame until it burns by itself. This will cause the brick to expand at the burning end. After the brick has stopped flaming, gently blow on the burning ember. Place the brick in the center of the censer (or incense burner), unlit end down. If the brick should fall over or is laid on its side, the flame may go out.
