Our Benzoin of Sumatra resin incense burns fresh and fragrant and is said to be sweet and soothing. Some say it smells a vanilla-like. Derived from trees, benzoin is believed to have antiseptic, stimulant, expectorant and diuretic properties and is included in some medicaments. Gum benzoin is a major component of the type of church incense used Catholic ceremonies and some other Orthodox Christian societies.

Size: 1 oz tube

Additional Product Info

To use our Shamans Market resin incense, ignite a charcoal tablet, such as Swift Lite Charcoal Tablets, and place the tablet in a fire-safe burning bowl. You may either set a piece of the resin incense directly on top of the hot charcoal table or grind the pie to a fine powder and sprinkle on the glowing tablet. Since Benzoin of Sumatra burns quickly, we recommend it be burned on a piece of aluminum foil placed on top of charcoal.

Our Story

Shamans Market is a labor of love and service. We began our spiritual journey in 1994, learning from wisdom keepers of many earth honoring wisdom traditions, mostly in the Americas. We have traveled extensively in Peru and made many meaningful heart connections with the people of this amazing country.In 1999, after running out of many of the products we use in our Shamanic practice (and not having a trip to Peru in sight) we decided to import products for our friends and community. We are as excited today as we were then to support the growing shamanic community in the US and globally. Additionally, providing a fair trade outlet for the exquisite artisans and the indigenous people of the Andes, Amazon, Tibet and other countries around the world!Over the years our offerings have grown. We are pleased to now offer lifestyle products to promote living in harmony with each other and our Earth.
