Tantalize your nose with our Piñon Incense that has a smooth Southwestern aroma and a distinctive fragrance, unlike other pines. 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.
We have been producing Potpourri in our workshop for over four decades. As this is a natural product appearance will vary from season to season. The dried plant materials are dried in the high desert sun to contribute to artistic designs. These may be further treated to increase the durability and preserve the composition of the product.
Our botanicals should only be used for decorative purposes, and are therefore deemed to be inedible. They are not to be added to food, beverage or supplement preparations.
“Mellow pine with a hint of mushroom and the feeling that it rained yesterday and dark mulch was spread around the flower beds this morning. It’s somehow both crisp and deep, and I would like very much if all of my chunky knit sweaters smelled like this. If you’re intrigued by the idea of smelling like the woods, this is a great entry point. It’s less sensual and more charming than the others, but just as beautiful.”
“Falling Trees is warm and resiny, with a touch of smoke and a lingering overtone of wind rustling through an old oak grove. If you’ve ever specifically dressed in enough layers to be comfortable outside on a cold day and still enjoy the winter sun — maybe sit on a tree swing with your favorite mug of Earl Grey and just breathe — that’s what Falling Trees feels like. It’s a perfect choice if you want earthy warmth paired with sophistication.”
“A friend of mine is a master craftsman and makes the most beautiful cabinets from mixed wood; this scent brings me right back into his shop. It’s an elevated sandalwood and cedar. Focus on the master craftsman’s workshop. It’s all saw-warmed wood and hand-planed shavings; it’s graceful strength and creative curiosity. It’s heavenly and I highly recommend you stop by.”
“Every year over Easter I do a women’s circle in the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. The air is warm and clear, there’s steam coming off the natural hot springs, and I’m surrounded by open, loving, funny, curious, beautiful women. We meditate and dance and soak and do qigong and sing ancient songs and cry and laugh and it heals my soul and cracks me open. Each morning we burn sage, palo santo and sweetgrass around our alter. Smudge evokes the energy of that weekend for me, with all the grounding warmth of sacred smoke, and the tinge of the match you just blew out after lighting your smudges.”
“This scent opens like kind eyes from a mysterious woman in a bookshop who you follow to see what she’s reading next. From there it evolves into a clearing in the forest and a stone-ringed fire pit. The scent of pine comes alive and mixes with the minerality of stone as you brush needles away and prepare to start a campfire, maybe with a glass of red wine. It feels like clean, earnest goodwill, and somehow optimistic.”
