Appreciating aroma of incense is a classical Japanese art-form called Kōdō (香道, the Way of Aroma). It is similar to other arts such as tea ceremony (Sadō, the Way of Tea) and flower arrangement (Ikebana, Living Flowers).
We bring you all-natural Japanese cypress (hinoki) and cedar (sugi) incenses, especially suitable for those who are sensitive to strong fragrances or perfumes.
Ten Virtues of Aroma
Japanese Zen master Ikkyū inscribed the code of Ten Virtues of Aroma (Kō-No-Juttoku) in the 15th century. Since then it has been the guide for Kōdō practitioners and aroma lovers:
Opens a window beyond material existence
Refines body and soul
Keeps one alert
Is a companion in solitude
Brings a moment of serenity in midst of busy affairs
When plentiful, one never grows tired of it
Satisfies even when there is little
Soothes young and old alike
Does no harm when used every day
