Country of Origin: Components are from Japan. Manufactured in Hong Kong.

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

I have been looking forward to reviewing this Vanilla Morning Star Incense. I just find the fragrance of vanilla really captivating.

I have been reviewing a number of Morning Star incenses on the same day, and after just having burnt amber, which is a very muted fragrance, we are straight back in the fast lane with vanilla. It is zingy! It is very noticeable and sweet in a natural vanilla kind of way. It is also smokey and woody with a few base notes thrown in.

One word I would use is “wholesome” with the delightful vanilla essence coming through. I think if the idea of vanilla incense intrigues or excites you then you might find you like this one as much as I did.

    Highly Rated

    Posted by Ms Griffin on 24th Mar 2006

    So glad to see holisticshop selling these. I have been using morning star sticks for a few years and rate them highly. Not too smoky and smell lovely. I have used many of the different aromas and they are all just as wonderful. Now I can buy from here and don't have to go into the city for them.
