Materials: Frankincense and Myrrh Natural Resin Incense, from India • Approx. 30 g/ bag, 12.5 cm width x 8 cm height.
Resin is one of the oldest forms of incense, used for ceremonies, aromatherapy, meditation and creating a spiritual atmosphere. It is made directly from aromatic plant resins, gums and woods. Try using this precious gift of the vegetal world in your home to purify and sweeten the atmosphere.
Frankincense has a balsamic, slightly lemony aroma. It's somewhat camphor-like and woody. It is a comforting scent that soothes, warms, relaxes the mind and aids in meditation. The original form of incense came in resin, and Frankincense has been used for cultivating inner peace, grounding and connectedness since ancient times. It's the perfect companion for getting into a meditative spiritual state.
Further, for millennia religious leaders have contended that burning incense has been good for the mind, body and soul. Now, biologists have learned that it is good for our brains too. Burning Frankincense activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain to alleviate anxiety or depression.
Myrrh is warm, spicy and bitter with smoky undertones. A gift for your body, mind and spirit, known as a powerful healing essence it was used in the ancient world during sacred ceremonies.
Myrrh aids with spiritual connection and is thought to unite heaven and Earth by awakening your awareness of the higher self. This sacred resin helps to maintain a state of enlightenment and clears negative energy and illusions that stand in the way of seeing the truth. In Kundalini, it strengthens the bond between the crown (heaven) and base (Earth) chakras. It also helps you stay present and not worry about the future.
A recent study found that burning Myrrh in incense form can kill up to 68 percent of airborne bacteria.
HOW TO USE: Use a safe heatproof dish that is thick enough to prevent heat transfer to the surface and wide enough to catch any stray sparks. A stone bowl filled with sand would be a good choice. If you use a metal incense burner, place a wood coaster or cloth underneath it to avoid scorching your table/altar.
Next, place a small lit charcoal tablet on top of the sand. Charcoal ignites with a lighter flick, but be careful as lit charcoal can reach 1200 degrees Fahrenheit! Hold one edge while applying the flame to the other (using incense tongs would make this process safer). Self-lighting charcoal will begin to crackle and pop as the surface ignites. You can blow on it gently as if you were lighting a campfire.
When the whole surface is glowing, it's ready for you to add your incense. Add about 1/4 tsp of resin chunks on the tablet, a pinch at a time. The resin will burn for 5 - 10 min.

To promote the longevity of your bracelets elasticity:
1) Roll the beads over your wrist, stretching the elastic as little as possible.
2) Take the bracelet off before applying lotions/sprays to protect it against chemical breakdown.
3) Try to keep the knot from being exposed. Keeping it securely inside a bead will lessen the stress that it is exposed to, making it less likely to fail.
4) Wear your bracelet on your non-dominant hand. You are less likely to get your wrist caught with the hand that you use to do less things.
To create positive energy within your crystals, you should cleanse them to increase the effects of their metaphysical energies frequently. This is important as their effectiveness for healing, or whatever purpose they have been programmed for may be effected by negative vibrations within the stones.
Each piece of jewelry is made with spiritual intention and will be purified, cleansed and blessed prior to delivering to its new owner.
Information for general gemstone cleansing will be sent with your electronic order receipt, and not hard copy printed unless specifically requested.
Information for general gemstone charging/energizing will be sent with your electronic order receipt, and not hard copy printed unless specifically requested.
All of our crystals are ethically sourced. Many of the countries we currently buy from, including Bali, Guatemala and India, support various artisan communities through their social responsibility initiatives. This is a form of fair trade, where income is being used to support a diverse group of small manufacturers and families. Most of our semi-precious stones and crystal come from family-owned mines passed down from generation to generation, much like a family farm in Canada.
Our minerals are purchased from suppliers with the (correct) appropriate mining certificates, which establish their operations as safe and environmentally sound. We work with partners in the industry who we can trust.
We are not responsible for lost or stolen parcels. Please keep this in mind when purchasing regular standard shipping vs upgrading to a tracked shipping option. Pictures are provided as "proof" of shipment. Once your package has been dropped off with Canada Post, we cannot track or provide updates on your order.
We are not doctors and cannot give out medical advice. Energy healing crystals should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
