Ka-Fuh Hinoki (Japanese Cypress) Incense

£6.00 - £24.88

Ka-Fuh Cypress are aromatic incense sticks made from the aroma of Japanese Cypress or Hinoki trees.

The Hinoki Cypress incense has a fresh, dry and invigorating aroma that can be uplifting in a room. It’s a scent that could remind you of walking in a pine forest with dappled sunlight coming through the branches of the trees. Burn this incense when you need to feel uplifted or to cleanse and purify the air. 

The Ka-Fuh incense range is made by Nippon Kodo and focuses on providing incense which smells like, “the scent of blossoms in the wind.” The incense is made from carefully selected fine ingredients and there’s no bamboo core, so you get pure fragrance when the stick burns. As you might expect from such a name this range is very gentle with the most gorgeous of floral aromas when you smell the packet. When you burn these sticks sometimes it is difficult to actually see the smoke burning it is so light, and the floral scent arrives gradually and subtly. This makes this a great incense for those who want a really light delicate incense.

Ka-fuh is a delicate range of incenses from the Japanese company Nippon Kodo, a company that was founded over four centuries ago, and began by producing high quality incense for the Emperor of Japan.

More About Nippon Kodo Incense
The Japanese incense company, Nippon Kodo, was founded over four centuries ago and originally began by producing high quality incense for the Emperor of Japan. The company has continued to thrive ever since, now accounting for more than 50% of the entire incense industry in Japan. The company have a great philosophy about the importance of celebrating incense and recognise that, although many people simply love the ability of incense to fragrance a room, for others, their use comes down to spiritual and religious traditions. In fact, Nippon Kodo say that, through the production of their traditional Japanese incense they aim to, ‘cherish the ancient traditions and values’. The ingredients of Nippon Kodo incense are all high quality and are sourced from around the world. Experts help locate and harvest the rare aromatic woods, natural gums, resins and other ingredients used to make their incense. Once acquired, the ingredients are processed by hand, and by machine, in their eight factories in Japan and Hong Kong.

More About Japanese Incense
Japanese incense (speaking in general terms) is refined, pure, light smoke and rich in natural ingredients such as sandalwood. They don't usually have the thin wooden stick centre that is often found in Indian and other incense sticks. They are normally pure incense right the way through the stick. They are often designed with meditation in mind. Due to the high quality manufacturing processes the incense goes through they can be a little bit more expensive than other incense on the market.

The History of Japanese Incense

Staff Review by Brett Almond

A rich incense with a fresh edge caused by the Japanese Cypress trees. There is the subtle scent of the resin of Cypress trees, which is slightly reminiscent of pine forests. The incense should be termed an uplifting and clean incense. It won't send you to sleep so is ideal when you want to relax but still have things to do.
