Flat Cedar (LIBOCEDRUS DECURRENS) Bundles, 6" to 8" long x 1 1/2" to 2" dia.
Cleansing on emotional level. In Native American tradition the smoke of cedar is used to carry prayers to the creator. It is used to bridge the gap between heaven and earth. It also seems that the cedar tree has connections with power and the sun through many varying traditions such as Sumerian legend, Cabalistic lore and Eqyptian mythology. It is often associated with breaking the misuse of power or powerful forces that may be having a negative influence. This does connect further with Native American tradition where the burning of Cedar is used to help banish nightmares and also to release heavy emotional energies such as depression.

Many people find sticks the most convenient way to burn incense. The lighter colored sticks are wood base formed over bamboo stick and burn from 35 to 45 minutes depending on the fragrance. The darker sticks are pre-burnt wood base, (charcoal); they burn a little faster, but burn cleaner and produce a truer-to-fragrance. We also have a wood base stick that is formed without the bamboo stick (Japanese style).
Other people find cones to be their preference as a way to burn incense. The cones are wood base (natural). 1" cones burn approx 12 to 18 minutes while the 2" cones will burn 25 to 35 minutes. However most people prefer the 1" cone over the 2" cone in that it will create the desired effect.
