Esprit de la Nature – encens ecologique

 Very special herb and resin incense blends featuring the fresh scent of wildcrafted herbs and flowers and natural Fir Balsam Resin.

 We are honored to able to offer this wonderful line of incense wildcrafted in the fragrant forests of Quebec. These blends are consciously crafted by our friend and renaissance woman of the wilds, Bonnie Kerr, “Be-en-Foret” . The botanicals used are carefully harvested on her land where she stewards Terre a Terre a permaculture farm and eco-learning retreat, completely off the grid.  

 It is a rare treat to be able to experience an incense so lovingly made and close to earth.

 These are aromatic treasures, with a scent beyond words. Transporting one to a remote and pristine forest.  In the tradition of Earth Church … aromatic excellence and green alchemy.

 We know you will be deeply moved by the magick of this fine incense and fall in love with them as we have…

Be-en-Foret (Bonnie Kerr)

Be comes to the fragrant arts through her intimate connection with plants.  She has lived and worked as a plant healer in forests around the world, off grid without what many would consider "proper housing".  It is her direct experience with living plants that informs and directs her work in the aromatic arts.  She often receives the inspiration for an incense blend whispered in her ear while harvesting fragrant plants.  She likes to create blends that reproduce the scentsong and effects of a particular environment.  A lifelong student of ethnobotany, Be was initiated into the cultural and spiritual use of plants of the sacred hula by a Hawaiian elder.  She brings this awareness of plants to her incense that aims to recreate ancient sacred spaces.  She works in Quebec, Canada connecting with plants and her forest environment through the techniques she was taught and by knowledge she possesses through blood and bone ancestors.

The invention of the adjustable, electric, incense heater has an enormous influence on Be's incense path.  Not only does this heater make fine incense more accessible to people living in the West but it allows for a far more subtle range of aromatic possibilities than ever before.
