Ka-Fuh Lavender incense is a floral scented Japanese incense made by Nippon Kodo.
The Ka-Fuh range is so-called as the name – pronounced ‘ka-fu’ – means the, ‘scent of blossoms in the wind.’ That’s exactly what the lavender incense smells like when it’s lit, like the gentle scent of lavender flowers as you brush past them or as they linger in the wind. It’s not a strong or overpowering scent, but rather it’s nicely floral with a slightly sweet edge to it.
The Ka-Fuh incense is designed as low-smoke incense sticks and they’re available in a range of different pack sizes. Try burning the lavender sticks on their own, or alongside one of the other floral incenses to create the scent of a mixed flower garden.
Lavender is renowned for having calming properties, so it’s a good fragrance to have on in the background in the evening before you go to bed, or if you’re feeling stressed and in need of relaxation.
When you smell these sticks in the packet you can smell real lavender, not a perfumed imitation, and this is refreshing. The smoke is light, dry, unobtrusive and delicate. When burning you are not so much getting the smell of lavender you would get if you rubbed your hands on a lavender flower, and smelt them. This is the smell of burning lavender, which has been used by many cultures as a means of cleansing and relaxation. Lavender can be used to help integrate your spirituality and your everyday life, and may help you connect to the idea that everything we do is sacred. It's most outstanding attribute seems to be that of restoring balance.

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.
