Morning Star Sandalwood Incense
Sandalwood incense has a sweet, soft and woody aroma. It’s a scent that’s believed to have calming properties and could help to aid relaxation. If you want to have clarity of thought and mind, try burning sandalwood incense whilst you practice yoga, tai chi or meditation.
Morning Star has been a consistent worldwide best selling incense for Nippon Kodo for over 30 years. The Morning Star range has many different aromas and each packet comes with a very small ceramic tile (as can be seen in the photo), in which a stick can be supported while burning. These are useful if you are not concerned about the surface the sticks are burning on.
- Available in a box of 50 sticks, or box of 200
- Each Box Includes a Small Ceramic Incense Holder
- Burn Time Per Stick is Approximately 30 Minutes
- Each Stick is Roughly 12cm in Length
- Country of Origin is Vietnam (Made by Nippon Kodo's factory based in Vietnam)
How to Use: Light the tip of the incense stick until it flames. Once the tip is glowing, carefully blow out the flame. Fix into appropriate holder on a heat resistant surface.
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.

Staff Review by Brett Almond
Here we have the rich, deep, earthy, sweet, woody scent of sandalwood. In the Sandalwood Morning Star you won’t find the high concentration of sandalwood that you would in the more premium incenses (sandalwood, being a more premium ingredient, as its concentration increases, so does the price). This is more your everyday kind of use sandalwood incense, made with the same attention to detail and quality that all Japanese incense from Nippon Kodo seems to be. The mind calming properties of sandalwood often make it a popular choice for burning during meditation.
