I do believe this is the finest stick we have ever created...done in the Japanese style, but warmer, with a bit sacred forest, and green frankincense. We used the finest Sandalwood powder (Shunkodo) and Agarwood powder as the base for a myriad of elegant aromatics, Let this blend create a peaceful and meditative atmosphere.
Spirit Temple contains:
Fir Balsam raw resin
Hinoki and Port Orford Cedar oils
Green Frankincense and Mastic
Japanese Zukoh , the finest quality from sacred Mt Koya
My special essential oil blend...
There are no wood binders or fillers in this blend. Just pure precious woods and aromatics.
8 sticks are nestled in chips of Green Frankincense in our Glass vials corked and sealed with beeswax.
The beauty of colour and of form is limited in its showing; it is a fixed quality of existence, whereas fragrance is volatile, ethereal as the breathing of life. So in all religious ceremonies, frankincense plays a prominent part. There is something spiritual in redolence. When the delicious perfume of the sakura quickens the morning air, as the sun in its course rises to illumine first the isles of the Far East, few sensations are more serenely exhilarating than to inhale, as it were, the very breath of beauteous day.
