With a heavy shroud of sweet smoke, Terra incense conjures forth the tranquility of the grave. A conjunction of sun-kissed flora and chthonic roots, Terra incense is composed of Spikenard, Orris Root, Rose Petals, Vetiver, Benzoin, and Oakmoss.

Terra incense offers repose beneath the heavy soil of interment during death meditation, and may be offered to the deceased during burial rites.

Scent Notes: Musky, Sweet Earth, Heavy, Deep Floral, Balsamic Resin

"The grave recieves you with love. Surrender yourself to the Earth. Return what was loaned to you. Give up your pleasure, your pain, your friends, your lovers, your life, your past, what you desire. You will know nothingness, it is the only reality. Don't be afraid, it's so easy to give. You're not alone, you have a grave. It was your first mother. The grave is the door to your rebirth. Now you will surrender the faithful animal you once called your body. Don't try to keep it, remember, it was a loan. Surrender your legs, your sex, your hair, your brain, your all. You no longer want to possess, possession is the ultimate pain. The earth covers your body, she came to cover you with love, because she is your true flesh. Now you are an open heart, open to receive your true essence, your ultimate perfection. Your new body, which is the universe, the work of god. You will be born again, you will be real. you will be your own father, your own mother, your own child, your own perfection. Open your eyes, you are the earth, you are the green, you are the blue, you are the Aleph, you are the essence. Look at the flower, look at the flower, for the first time look at the flowers."

- The Alchemist, The Holy Mountain (Jodorowsky, 1973)
