Japanese incense sticks
Traditional incense is characterized by heavy fragrance and smoke. Some people swear by it, but for those who prefer a softer everyday burn, we suggest Japanese incense. These all-natural incense sticks have a much subtler scent and are less smokey than many of the other incense. Kōdō, meaning Way of Incense, is the Japanese art of using and appreciating incense as a ritual, in a way similar to the well-known tea ceremony. Kōdō ceremony includes all the aspects of appreciation for incense, from the tools used to burn them, to the art of recognizing and appreciating various notes and scents.
Passed down since the fifteenth century, the traditional “Ten Virtues of Koh” lists the benefits of proper and correct use of high quality incense:
- 感格鬼神 : Sharpens the senses
- 清浄心身 : Purifies the body and the spirit
- 能払汚穢 : Eliminates pollutants
- 能覚睡眠 : Awakens the spirit
- 静中成友 : Heals loneliness
- 塵裏愉閑 : Calms in turbulent times
- 多而不厭 : Is not unpleasant, even in abundance
- 募而知足 : Even in small amounts is sufficient
- 久蔵不朽 : Does not go bad
- 常用無障 : Is not harmful even with common use
In Japanese culture, to this day there is a strong relationship and a holistic approach between the fragrant scent, the senses, the human spirit, and nature. There is a level of ceremony, spirituality and mindfulness that is central to this practice.
The traditional Japanese incense is prepared from selected plants & aromatic spices, and is completely natural and safe. Made in accordance with ancient traditional formulas.
