A revered Latin American holiday - Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead – takes place on the first of November, dedicated to celebrating the memories of those loved ones who have departed from the earthly realm, as families build altars to their deceased relatives and visit their graves to leave gifts of flowers, food, sugar skulls and other forms of calavera.  Banquets, festivals and parades are also held on this day, reminding us all that life is short and sweet, so don’t miss a moment of its pleasures, especially those we find in the ones we love.


Our olfactory interpretation of this pious observance features traditional ingredients which when combined create a unique scent only experienced one day of the year, symbolizing its mysteries and its blessings…spicy geranium and crisp sage mingle with the resinous depth of myrrh and Mexican copal and a waft of sacramental smoke.


GERANIUM ~ Cleansing, hex-breaking, protection, peace of mind, stability of emotions; love, healing, fertility.
COPAL ~ Love, purification, cleansing.
MYRRH ~ Stimulating, soothing. Powerful guard against evil.
SAGE ~ Healing, prosperity, cleansing. Wisdom, longevity, protection, wishes granted.
SMOKE ~ In addition to the attributes of whatever is being burned (resins, woods, etc), smoke is for cleansing, purification, renewal, consecration, concealment and celebration.
