Caribbean Harvest Incense - NEW 2023!
Caribbean Harvest Incense
The 2nd Island Octopus Incensarium edition
An "incense pearl" bend created at The Island Octopus Incensarium.
You will receive approximately 15 grams (0.52 ounces) of all natural resin-based incense housed in an aluminum tin with an illustrated label. The Island Octopus' "incense pearls" are hand-rolled for easy use with charcoal censers. We highly recommend trying them on electric incense warmers.
*** Blend description ***
Caribbean Harvest Incense was first introduced last year (2022) as an experimental blend created in a live setting at the Daas Co-Op Art Gallery. This new edition uses the original base blend, while incorporating more earthy and musky elements. The intent was to keep a culinary element, but play more heavily with wilderness, "manly" and oceanic notes.
The recipe is primarily based in protium from Guatemala blended with a variety of copal (Bursera and Protium spp.) and Sea-Kissed Myrrhs. The additions of the resins of tolu balsam, lignum vitae, dragon's blood and shaved tonka beans bring their deep and mysterious sweet appeal. The resins have been infused with an excessive mix of sweet spices, citrus, culinary herbs, and floral oils. The darker musky and leathery depths of the aromatic spectrum emerge with a touch of oakmoss, nagarmotha, West Indian bay, seaweed, amyris and others. Blended with excellent palo santo and Hawaiian sandalwood powder to help bind the blend together. Hand rolled in powdered allspice and birch.
Caribbean Harvest Incense is best experienced on an electric incense heater such as the legendary Golden Lotus heater. "Incense pearls" may be crushed before use to provide greater surface area. Also excellent as a smudging incense using the traditional charcoal method (we love using this one on charcoal!). Please ask if you have any questions!
