Caribbean Harvest Incense (Limited Edition 2022)
Caribbean Harvest Incense: Incense Pearls
This is an "Incense Pearl" style incense blend created at The Island Octopus Incensarium. This incense blend was created during the 4th Annual Makers Market event at Daas Co-op Art Gallery & Gifts in Fort Myers.
You will receive approximately 15 grams (0.52 ounces) of all natural resin-based incense housed in an aluminum tin with an illustrated label by Melissa. The Island Octopus' "Incense Pearl" blends are a hand-rolled form of incense designed for use with electric and charcoal censers. This is in the same style as previous incense blends from Ethereal Aromas Incense Company.
*** Blend description ***
This blend is based in Protium copal and various Bursera species, sweetened with Tolu and Lignum Vitae. Melded with other mysterious and sensual ingredients such as Palo Santo, Sandalwood, Tonka, Vanilla and others. A multitude of culinary herbs and spices such as Allspice, Galangal, Nutmeg, Ancho, Fennel, Star Anise, and Cumin bring an enticingly complex mix of aromas. Working on another level, the breaths of flowers such as Frangipani, Ylang Ylang and White Champaca and the zest of citruses including Tangerine and Lime bring a fresh and ethereal brightness to the blend. Finally the earth element, with its mossy and musky depths ground and complete this first edition of Caribbean Harvest Incense.
I knew I wanted to work with Protium copal and focus on using spices traditionally used in culinary settings, some of which are uncommon. The intent was to create another autumn and spiced style incense in line with past creations including Pumpkin Harvest Incense, Orange Clove Delights, and Mayan Chocolate Incense.
All recipes are original creations by Matthew Gindling exclusively for The Island Octopus! Label illustration by Melissa Rohr Gindling.
