Morning Star Sandalwood IncenseRegular price $6.99 Save $-6.99
Morning Star Sandalwood Incense is smooth, fresh and earthy. Derived from the heartwood of the genus Santalum, sandalwood produces a fragrance that is both relaxing and sensual. The sandalwood scent is commonly used to induce a calm and meditative state, and has an age-old reputation as an aphrodisiac. New research indicates exposure to sandalwood stimulates wound healing, and the scent is also known to help relieve depression, muscle soreness and indigestion.
Like Sume-e paining and haiku poetry, the Japanese art of incense (or Koh as it is known in Japan) is famous for its mystery and subtly. Morning Star incense, the perennial favourite and best-selling line of Japanese incense, embodies both of these qualities. Much more subtle than Indian or Tibetan incense, it invokes the mysterious fragrances of the natural world without overwhelming you with smoke.
Created in the 1960s in Japan, This incense has been loved worldwide ever since. Hand crafted by skilled artisans with pure floral essences and aromatic woods, each stick is then air dried before being packaged. Unlike most other incense sticks, Morning Star sticks are not rolled on a bamboo core, which means there is no wood odour when burning, so you can enjoy the true fragrance of the incense. Morning Star is the perfect everyday incense. It is equally suitable for meditation, relaxation, setting a peaceful mood for discussion, reading or listening to music.. Each box contains 50 hand rolled sticks and a ceramic tile holder.
To use incense, place it in an appropriate holder (something that is heat proof) and simply light the tip. Once a flame appears, gently blow it out so that it is left to slowly burn. Some people are sensitive to some scents or the smoke that is released, even though it is very minimal. If this happens, just place your holder on a higher shelf.
