What Holisticshop staff think

"A cute little ceramic cat incense holder. We import these direct from Japan so we know they are authentic. They come in a plastic outer, with Japanese writing on it. Maybe not the cheapest incense holder money can buy but it is high quality and brings a genuine flavour of Japan into the house."

Dictionary Terms Explained

Cat - Magic, intuition, subconscious
In this definition we are mainly referring to the domesticated cat.

Cats are creatures of the night, often sleeping and dreaming in the daytime while going out at night to hunt. Because of this association with the night they are often represented as mysterious and magical. Cats are often depicted with witches and this is often related to shape shifting - i.e. a witch taking the form of a cat when they wish to. Cats are often in fairy stories as wise or cunning creatures. In many traditions, such as in Egypt (see Bast), the cat was worshipped or held in very high esteem.

To wear or have near you the symbol of cat is to state your intention to commune more with your deeper magical self and to connect more with your dreams. The energy of cat is mainly about intuition and accessing our subconscious.

Baieido Incense - High quality Japanese incense manufacturer
Baieido is one of the oldest traditional incense producers in Japan and has been producing a range of pure and high quality incense for over 300 years. The company has a long history, which can be traced back to the Muromachi period in Japanese history (1338 to 1573). The founder of Baieido, Kakuuemon Yamatoya, became a wholesaler of medicinal herbs in Sakai city during this time. It was a well known trading port, where demand for good quality incense was high.

By 1657, Kakuuemon Yamatoya was specialising in selling incense ingredients and incense sticks and was able to call himself Jinkoya Sakubei. Jinkoya meant ‘aloeswood trader,’ and it was a name that only authorised medicinal wholesalers, who specialised in incense, in Sakai were able to call themselves.

Later the name of the business changed to Nakata Baieido, still making incense with methods that had been handed down for generations. Baieido is now recognised as one of the highest quality incense manufacturers in the world today blending the finest aromatic woods and resins to produce a natural, mild, low-smoke incense stick of superb quality and aroma.

Since Jinkoya’s incense work, the time-honoured traditions and incense formulas have passed on down through the centuries and the company continues to make incense to the oldest recipes.

Baieido take pride in using both traditional incense stick making processes alongside more modern manufacturing techniques and new technology.

When Baiedio incense products are being made, they go through 12 keys stages.

1. The natural perfume, which is a key component of the incense sticks, it carefully controlled and analysed in the laboratory.
2. The aloes and sandalwoods are milled and crushed together into a powder form.
3. Next the powder and dyes are blended together.
4. The mixed materials are put through a sieve to remove any impurities.
5. The materials are kneaded to form a clay-like substance, called tama.
6. The tama is put through a machine to form stick shapes and are then laid on a tray and cut to a set length.
7. The incense sticks are dried out and any that aren’t straight are removed.
8. The sticks of incense are cut into different lengths.
9. The sticks are dried for several days.
10. The incense sticks are adjusted with a board, to help prevent them becoming bent.
11. Each individual incense stick is carefully inspected, then bound together with a fixed weight.
12. The sticks are checked again, before being packed up.
