Eco-friendly Traditions

This incense is produced in Kyushu by our family-run supplier.

Japanese cedar (sugi) incense produced  by water mill with zero industrial waste.

Sugi needles are harvested without cutting down the trees, cleaned and ground into pulp using a water mill powered by a local stream, producing zero industrial waste.

Where there were over 40 such operations in the beginning of the 20th century, there are only two left today.

Aromatherapy and Health

In the scent which Japanese cedar (and its incense) gives off there is a natural anti-microbial substance called Phytoncide, which help the tree stay healthy by preventing rot and attacks by germs, bacteria and insects.

shin rin yoku (forest bathing)

Phytoncides, in incense as well as compound form, are widely used in Eastern medicine and aromatherapy for general relaxation and to improve health.

In Japan people commonly engage in forest bathing (森林浴 shin-rin-yoku) to breathe in phytoncides emitted by plant and trees, in order to improve their health.

  1. Love Sugi

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 22nd Feb 2016

    Sugi entirely changed the feeling and energy in my home to be more refreshing, inviting and comfortable. Very natural scent which I love.
    This Sugi is so lovely and leaves behind the felling of having been outdoors. Thank you Wawaza!
