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. While this comes with a spiffy Hinoki and aluminum holder, the sticks will fit standard diameter incense holders as well. Its sleek style and marvelous scent makes it an excellent host gift (if we do say so ourselves).
