This magical incense is truly smokeless. This effect is achieved by the charcoal base which also has a purifying effect on the air. The charcoal mixed with hinoki essential oil makes for a subtle and relaxing woodsy aroma. The essential oil comes from felled trees as it is illegal to harvest hinoki cypress in Japan.
The creation of incense is an extraordinarily delicate process. Baieido has dedicated itself to making incense for over 300 years since the year 1657. The method and recipes have been handed down from generation to generation in an unbroken secret oral tradition.
