Breu is a wild harvested resin from the soul of the Amazon jungle. The elusive fragrant resin is considered to be sacred by the ancient Yawanawá tribe due to its potent abilities to calm the mind, body and soul.
Used for centuries as a ritual to balance the 6th chakra and enhance concentration and peace of mind, Breu grows in the jungles of Brazil and is revered for its aromatherapy. The complex woodsy aroma of rich earth and crushed leaves purifies energy, reinstates balance and enhances mental clarity.
Topical application of the oil has expressive anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, which help to soothe dry skin.
When the large ancient Almacega tree of the Amazon rainforest is inflicted with a puncture on its bark, it secretes a beautifully aromatic resin from its trunk. Upon contact with air, the chlorophyll-rich resin hardens into a pebble-like object that resembles volcanic rock. Breu resin extracted from the Almacega tree is considered sacred and used in rituals to purify homes and focus the mind.
In the depths of the rainforests along the Amazon River basin, local indigenous communities still burn the resin night and day. These sacred ancestral rituals build up stunning curtains of fragrant Breu smoke believed to ward off evil spirits and protect from danger.
Breu resin pebbles produce a healthy therapeutic smoke that has historically been used to treat the respiratory system, headaches and stress. The smoke of Breu protects the body and reconnects the spirit to heart of the forest.
