MANTIS INCENSE PYRES

SCENT NOTES: Myrtle Leaf, Rosalina, Green Tea, African Bluegrass, Cypress, Angelica Root

DETAILS: The word mantis translates literally to “diviner,” and this title was given to these long bodied insects with enlarged fore legs because they were believed by the ancient Greeks to possess supernatural powers. Even the more generalized term, “mantid,” translates to “soothsayer.” In addition to its incredibly unique bodily shape and coloration, the creature often adopts a stationary or swaying back-and-forth position, apparently reverent or meditative, hence why we colloquially call them “praying mantis.”

Mantis is a scent that that is equally piquant and tranquil, while remaining entirely green through and through. Mantis captures the verdant leaves, foliage, needles, and grass throughout which the praying mantis makes it home, and which we refer to as nature. Myrtle leaf, rosalina, and african bluegrass forge a braided leafy accord. Cypress and angelica root provide a very subtle woody component, adding depth, and green tea softens and adds balance to the fragrance while maintaining its entirely green structure.

    HOW TO BURN CONE INCENSE

    1. Select a heat resistant burner such as a traditional cone incense burner, stone, seashell, tile or dish. 
    2. Place burner on a stable surface away from flamable objects, children and pets.

    3. Carefully light the tip of the cone and let burn for 10 to 15 seconds until an ember has formed and then blow out.

    4. Allow to smoke until the cone has burned all the way through.

    5. Dispose of ash in water to prevent risk of fire. 

    6. Keep your burner clean by scooping ash or washing away residue. Salt and sand make great bases for your burner.
