Extracted from the Almacega tree of the Amazon rainforest, sacred Breu (“Breuzinho” or “White Breu”) is used in healing rituals to ward off dark spirits and invite good energy.
Breu’s aromatic resin is rich in alpha and beta-amyrina triterpenes, which possess anti-inflammatory, analgesic and gastro-protective properties (Dep. of Physiology and Pharmacology of the Federal University of Ceará, Brazil).
Salvia Apiana (white sage, bee sage, or sacred sage) is an evergreen perennial shrub native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, found mainly on the coast of the Mojave and Sonoran deserts. Salvia Apiana is widely used by Pacific Coast Native American groups.
The Cahuilla women drink a tea from the roots for healing after childbirth. The leaves are also burned by many for smoke-based purification rituals.
The Andean indigenous Bursera Graveolens tree naturally produces aromatic hypoallergenic resin that grows in concentration with age.
The value of this sacred gift was clear from the first discovery of its lasting torchlight and beautiful scent. Bursera Graveolens lives for 40 to 90 years; after death, the wood matures four to ten more years before it falls. Only then it's consecrated as “Sacred Wood” (Palo Santo).
By respecting this cycle, we ensure the highest quality hand-chosen offerings. Each year we reserve a select portion of high resin Peruvian Palo Santo wood.
Chacrona & Jagube
Psychotria viridis, Chacrona leaf and Banosteriopsis caapi, Jagube vine, together are the fundamental ingredients preparing the sacramental entheogenic drink Ayahuasca.
It has a rich legacy of associated traditions, myths, therapies, rituals and aesthetics, spanning from the primordial roots of the indigenous syncretic spiritual movements emerging across the planet.
