Encelia farinosa (commonly known as brittlebush or brittlebrush), is a common desert shrub of northwestern Mexico through California and the southwestern United States. Its common name comes from the brittleness of its stems.

Other names include “hierba del vaso” (Spanish) and “cotx” (Seri).[1] Another Spanish name for it is “incienso” because the dried sap was burned by early Spanish Missions in the New World as incense.
