Pinyon Pine (aka. Piñon Pine)is a dark orange-ish brown and quite sticky resin obtained from the Pinus genus. Native to the eastern United States and Canada, this pine resin burns quite cleanly when heated upon a hot charcoal. The smoke produced by Pinyon Pine is very pleasing and quite unique when compared to other pine, spruce and fir resins we have experienced. The aroma is often described as the scent of the American northwest and we like to think of it as having a spicy candy quality. Pinyon is often most favored when it comes to burning pine incense in contemporary culture. Pinyon Pine is associated with the Air element and Jupiter is thought to be its celestial body.
