Incense is burned in order to clean or purify spaces, or to send messages to the other side. Se'pa is the crystallized sap of a type of tree native to the Amazon. It is used by the yawanawa people in order to purify the physical and energetic body. A common practice in Yawanawa villages is that newcomers to the village are blessed with the smoke of se'pa before anyone in the community is allowed to speak to them.
This is done in order to make the visitor more identifiable to the spirtual energies of the Amazon to prevent the person from becoming sick. When burned the se'pa has a sweet earthy aroma similar to copal but much richer.
Breu Branco or Sepá is the Pano Indigenous name for the resin of a tree called Almecegueira, Protium Heptaphyllum, from the family of the Burseráceas. It is also known as Brazilian Frankincense.
