Southwest Incense Burner & Piñon Wood IncenseRepublic of Texas Collection
- This Southwest Fireplace Incense Burner with Natural Piñon Wood Incense brings the charming aroma of New Mexico pine smoke to your home or desktop.
The first product in our Republic of Texas Collection, the Southwest Fireplace Incense Burner with Piñon incense is made by the Incienso de Santa Fe company in Albuquerque. This region, defined on the west by the Rio Grande River in modern day New Mexico, is within the boundaries of the original Republic of Texas.
Two products are offered. The first is the Incense Burner Set, which includes the Southwest Fireplace Burner together with one box of Natural Piñon Wood Incense.
In the alternative, you can purchase individual boxes of the Natural Piñon Wood Incense. All boxes include approximately 40 incense cones. If purchased without the Fireplace, cones can be burned on any fireproof surface.
With its corner-style orientation, the Southwest fireplace (3" wide x 4.25" tall) was designed to resemble the adobe fireplaces so common in traditional southwestern homes. Kokopelli designs on the facade are hand-etched and painted. The Fireplace can be removed from its base for setting the incense, and cleaning.
If you’re unfamiliar with piñon incense, imagine a bouquet altogether different than that produced by more typical incense used for meditation or spiritual purposes. Piñon incense produces an aroma more akin to a campfire, or the smoky air of a small mountain town in winter. The burning wood smell is nostalgic, even if you can’t quite place the origin of the nostalgia itself.
The piñon tree is an evergreen that grows in a region roughly tracking the boundaries the Republic of Texas: west from Texas into New Mexico, and north through Colorado and into southern Wyoming.
Your Southwest Fireplace Incense Burner Set or Natural Piñon Wood Incense ships to you packed in raw Texas cotton from our Texas Showroom in Austin, Texas.
