Breuzinho (aka. Breu Claro)is a hard, dry, rock-like gray resin that appears with white striations obtained from the Protium genus. Native to the Amazon, this copal-style resin evaporates completely when heated upon a hot charcoal. The smoke produced by Breuzinho is woodsy and somewhat musty with hints of spice. We highly recommend this as a rainy day and nighttime incense. Sometimes know as the 'Frankincense of Amazonia', the use of Protium resins as incense is widespread throughout the Amazon. Cousin to Peruvian Copal, we find that Breuzinho is more complex and cleansing. Breuzinho is commonly employed during Santo Daimeceremonies.It is associated with the Air element and Jupiter is thought to be its celestial body.

As of 2016, we have decided to majorly simplify the taxonomic structures of the species collection. Due to the numerous systems available, and many species being disputed and in a state of flux, we feel that most of our audience will be better served with a easier to understand condensed listing.
