Hickory is slow to grow, signifying an alignment with the virtues of patience and perseverance. It also produces a pleasant smoke and can be used as an incense in rites of steadfastness, perseverance and staying the course as well as to increase courage and improve resolve.
Hickory is technically not an “Incense of the West” as it grows mostly in the southeast. It is a tall tree that has a shaggy bark when mature. The wood is hard and the smoke is used for cooking much like mesquite and alder.
This charming vintage printed box contains 40 hickory incense bricks. Light them as you would any incense cone. They are especially magical with our Terracotta Incense Burners.
