Discover the Medicine and Spirit of Plant Smoke and the Roots of Aromatherapy 


 Did You Know Incense is an Integral Part of Medical and Spiritual Traditions from Around the World?


Practicing aromatic medicine without understanding the art of incense is like a tree planted on rocky ground…

Sure the tree will grow, but it won’t fully flourish and its roots will remain shallow.

For a tree to thrive it needs a solid foundation and deep roots in healthy soil.

The aromatic healing arts are rooted in the practice of incense, but for some reason modern aromatherapy seems to have forgotten its ancient foundation.

Not only has incense been the #1 remedy for nearly all respiratory complaints for ages, it’s also the most universal tool for keeping airborne viruses at bay, increasing immunity, balancing the nervous system, and healing the mind, emotions, and spirit. 

Move Beyond Textbook Aromatherapy by Learning from the Plants Themselves

from books or other people is great...

"I knew that burning incense was a sacred time-honored tradition, but not until I took Evan's Listening to Incense home study course did I begin to feel connected at a deeper level.  This class gave me a deeper meaning, connection, and understanding of the sacredness of incense.  It taught me how to connect with the plant's energies on a more meaningful level.  I am so grateful the universe brought Evan and his Listening to Incense class into my awareness.  His deep love and passion for the sacredness of incense shows in his knowledge and teachings.  I highly recommend this course if you are yearning for a deeper connection with aromatic plants and the sacredness of incense."

"Evan's Listening to Incense course was so much more than I could have expected. First of all, thank you for making it affordable. Who knew there could be so much information about incense. Not only was the course enlightening, excitingly well written, and relevant; it allowed me to create personal conclusions and allowed for a free-thinking and meditative space that I couldn't do with just meditation alone. His incense is delightfully fragrant and pleasing which made doing the "homework" enticing and fun."
