Our Foundation

The foundation of Higher Mind Incense is based upon ancient healing and ceremonial uses of plant medicine, aromatherapy, and incense culture from around the world. Our revolutionary incense is created to aid people on their road of life by restoring emotional, mental, and spiritual harmony.

Our Mission

Higher Mind is bringing back the sacredness of incense to our busy world by honoring and following the traditional path of incense with dedication, reverence, and art. We are dedicated to those that wish to live in greater balance, cultivate inner peace, and strengthen their connection to spirit and their own hearts.  We are in humble service to humanity and to the earth by sharing our vision, wisdom, and medicines created with natural, sustainable, and eco-friendly ingredients. 

Our Products

Higher Mind Incense blends were designed with the purpose to aid people who desire balance and harmony in their lives. All of our blends are created with their own unique intentions and aromatherapeutic principles that have been used for thousands of years to positively affect people's mind, mood, and cognitive function. 

Our incense blends are each aimed to have a specific function or purpose - from calming the mind for meditation, balancing Yin and Yang energies, to enhancing ones dreams, and nourishing heart connection with others. Each of our incense blends changes space in its own unique way. We use herbs and essential oils that are traditionally used to clear and cleanse energies, positively affect the atmosphere of any space, and leave behind mood enhancing aromas whenever burned. 

We go above and beyond by being one of the only incense crafters to infuse our products with Gem Essences, a type of crystal elixir used for its high vibrational potency. The infusion of these elixirs into our blends amplifies subtle vibrations and energies, harmonizing with the herbs and intentions of a particular blend. 

Higher Mind Incense aligns positive intentions, aromatherapeutic herbs, essential oils, and high vibrational gem essences to create a synergistic herbal incense for a new paradigm. 

 Our Project

Our current practices have allowed us to share our incense and healing vision with thousands of people, teaching us precious wisdom and knowledge of working with plants and humans on deeper levels. However, these practices are limiting our greater potential and further growth and we feel it is time for another major step in our evolution as herbal incense crafters. 

We are striving to step out of our current practices and find ways to revert back to the old path of incense. By reducing the use of pre-made ingredients- essential oils, pre-pressed incense cones, etc- and recreating a product with local, homemade, and homegrown ingredients, we will achieve our dreams of creating a truly organic, sustainable, traditional incense. 

Our Project is focused on purchasing a specially designed herb grinder and incense cone press which will enable us to process plants, herbs, and tree resins into our own unique incense cones. This will allow a massive layer of this ancient art to unfold in front of us, opening the doors to unlimited possibility, creativity, and new ways of healing with aromatic herbs. Having the capability to grind and powder large quantities of plants and press them into cones ourselves right in our own laboratory will allow us to embody our highest vision. 

The next phase of our project is to become more localized by growing and harvesting our own herbs in our garden. In this way our incense can be made with the freshest plants and herbs from right outside our laboratory. From seed, to plant, to cone, to your home, our incense will truly embody the next level of incense. 

We are always working towards our practices being as natural, sustainable, and earth-friendly as possible. The success of this project will allow us to reduce our carbon footprint significantly by cutting down inbound material shipments from other companies. It will allow us to move away from the use of pre-pressed sandalwood incense cones and essential oils from various sources, and help us move toward using whole herbs and plants grown by us. 

Our goal to manifest our vision is to purchase a large scale industrial herb grinder, a hydraulic incense cone press, and seeds and plant starts to be grown in our garden. We thank you for helping us to evolve and achieve this dream so that we may continue to be in greater service to the earth and to humanity. Together lets revive and preserve the sacred art of incense.
