"Moon Garden" - Tipi - Handmade Ceramic Incense Burner
(with incense plate and 10 incense cones)
I am so in love with making these Tipi's because they are not only a functional incense burner, but
they are a super cute and beautiful piece of art for your sacred space, altar, and home too! I am
an avid incense burner and have my own little
Tipi here at home which I use almost every single day!
The word "Tipi" originates from the Lakota language and the word “Thípi,” which is often
translated to mean “they dwell.”
The Tipi was more than just a dwelling to the people who built them. They represented many
things: a home, protection from the elements, community, and a sacred space.
The structure itself was held very sacred. The floor of a Tipi would be in the shape of a circle,
which symbolized how everything in the world is connected. The floor space itself represented the
earth, while the soaring walls represented the sky. In some cases, a small altar may have been
built near the center of the Tipi for prayer purposes such as burning incense.
A box of White Sage incense cones (10 cones) is included with the Tipi so you can start using it
right away when it arrives. Considered a sacred herb by Native American people, White Sage is
used for purification and protection purposes. Many people follow the ancient Native American
tradition of smudging, which is believed to clear away negative energies.
To use the Tipi incense burner: Simply light the incense cone and then blow out. Place the
smoldering cone on to the incense plate, cover with the Tipi and the incense smoke will come out
of the hole in the top of the Tipi.

own Tipi burning some incense here:
