Japanese Incense

Japanese incense is traditionally used to purify the air and create a sacred space for spiritual rites, ceremonies and the practice of Buddhism. Thanks to its aromatic qualities, it's also very popular for creating a sense of ambience and calm in a room. In fact, in Japan, burning incense is a regular part of daily life in homes and temples alike. 

Japanese incense tends to be refined, pure, rich in natural ingredients (such as sandalwood) and produces a light smoke. The way that Japanese incense is made is usually different from how Indian incense is produced. Unlike Indian incense, the sticks don't usually have a thin wooden stick in their centre – instead, it is pure incense all the way through. 

Due to the high quality manufacturing processes the incense goes through, Japanese incense can be a little bit more expensive than other incense on the market. But if you want a purer incense experience, it's worth it. To find out more read: The History of Japanese Incense
