Hinoki: (Japanese cypress) has long been regarded as a precious tree and is also used in historical buildings such as Horyuji Temple and Shosoin. Nihon Shoki (Chronicles of Japan) says, "Use cedar and camphor tree for boats, hinoki for palaces, and Japanese umbrella pine for coffins". Hinoki contains a lot of hinokitiol, which has a high antibacterial effect as well as an excellent deodorant effect. It is also said that the scent of hinoki has a relaxing effect, and research has shown that inhalation of the scent component α-pinene contained in hinoki makes parasympathetic nerves dominate and leads to relaxation. Please use it for mental and physical purification and relaxation. 10% Japanese hinoki oil and 10% cypress wood are very luxuriously blended to create this incense.

White sage: Originally, Native Americans used white sage by smudging dried branches and leaves for "purification of a place" and "purification of themselves". Currently, it is widely used such as purifying power stones. It contains a very luxuriously 40% of California organic white sage. When this incense is burnt, the simple scent like smoking leaf and the scent peculiar to white sage float in the room. You can keep the scent for a longer time than the actual one on the same scent as when you smudge the branches and leaves directly. Since this product contains a lot of ingredients derived from medicinal herbs, it has an excellent effect of eliminating the odour of the room (deodorising effect).

Both come with a brass incense holder.
Incense length 13.5 cm
Burning time about 30 minutes
Contents: 20 pieces.

Please Always be careful when handling fire and do not leave incense burning alone.
Use a noncombustible incense plate and an incense burner and please make sure to prevent the incense from falling over or sticking out. 
And as always when burning anything, please always make sure the room is well ventilated and ideally have a window slightly open

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design.

We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
