Aloeswood stammer fra en familie af nåletræer, som, når den angribes af en bestemt bakterie, danner en duftende harpiks. I Japan kaldes et sådant 'angrebet' træ for Jinkoh, der betyder 'træ, der synker i vand' fordi det bliver så tungt af harpiks. Denne harpiksrøgelse bruges ved traditionelle japanske ritualer og åbner for en meget rig og kompleks verden af duft, når den brændes.

More About Nippon Kodo Incense

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.
