My Zen-styled, hand-pulverised meditation incense is designed for instilling a deep sense of tranquility, clear space and harmony. Containing pure, natural and supremely high quality ingredients, the incense produces a subtle and very pleasing natural fragrance, reminiscent of temples, shrines, places of contemplation. These sticks and cones do not produce intense floral aromas from added scent materials, they only feature their beautiful botanical ingredients including aromatic woods, tree resins, balsams, dried botanical materials (spices and seeds). No dubious wood shavings or chemical additives are used. No propylene glycol, pthalates, preservatives, synthetic fragrances or saltpeter is used in these cones. The combusting element is entirely dependent on finely ground Makko powder (Tabu no ki) sourced from the Machilus Thunbergii tree in Japan.
Now available in 2 forms – hand-extruded sticks and hand-rolled cones. Sticks are variously sized and need to be handled with care as they can break easily if dropped. There is no bamboo or wood stick in the centre, they are crafted purely from pulverised aromatics of supremely high quality.
The cones are very large and may be used in several lightings. To extinguish the cone for use at another time, snip the burning tip off with scissors. In high humidity or very damp conditions your cone may require re-lighting as the resin and fragrant woods ratio in the cones is very high, rendering the fragrant content dense with quality incense ingredients rather than being diluted with cheap sawdust fillers and toxic combustibles. Please ensure that the cones have good ventilation when burning and ensure that the tip is well and truly alight before extinguishing the flame. If you need to relight, tap away the ash from the top of the cone and re-ignite.
The cones produce more smoke than sticks, so please ensure that you have adequate ventilation when using. These cones are great when placed near a window. Please ensure that no flammable items such as curtains or window shades are anywhere near the lit cone.
Autumn Shadows contains extremely rare and precious Kyara powder – a high-grade, aged, wild, sinking Vietnamese Agarwood (Oud), Mysore Sandalwood, Somali Frankincense, Benzoin, Javanese Cinnamon and Makko. This incense induces a deep state of reflection and quiet stillness.
Winter Light contains Cypress, Patchouli, Myrrh, Somali Frankincense, Benzoin Cinnamon and Makko powder. Perfect atmosphere of a walk through a deep forest filled with mists in a cold winter world. Mysterious and also uplifting.
