This is not your average hippie incense. Made from the dark, aromatic, resin-rich heartwood of the Japanese Cypress tree ("Hinoki"), this deep, heady, woodsy incense is exactly the thing to have on hand for centering meditations, celebratory offerings, and, you know, covering up stinks. Exotic and luscious, people always ask "what on earth is that heavenly scent?" whenever we've been burning some in the shop. The sticks fit standard diameter incense holders (like our brass cube incense holder or the matching Hinoki holder) and, if left to burn, each stick lasts for 20 minutes (but the scent lingers in the air for longer). Comes in a sweet Hinoki "box" which we think makes it an excellent host gift.
