The finest Hinoki fragranced Japanese Incense sticks - in stunning packaging
Baieido's Sawayaka Hinoki Japanese Incense sticks are a premium product, made from 100% essential oil from Japanese Hinoki Cypress trees. Hinoki Cypress trees are a very slow-growing evergreen tree, which is traditionally used to build temples in Japan. These Incense sticks are a tribute to the revered Hinoki Cypress Tree, and the very high-quality packaging reflects this well.
Further, it's interesting to note that the pure essential oil used in these sticks comes only from Hinoki trees that have fallen or that died naturally. By law in Japan, it is forbidden to harvest live Hinoki trees. Partly to make this valuable resource more sustainable, and also to recognise it's importance in Japanese culture. This also means that the oil is both precious and limited in availability. Hence, Baieido's monthly production is limited to less than 200 boxes a month.
The fragrance characteristics of pure Hinoki are quite complex. Two elements making up the essential oil are alpha-Pinene (α-Pinene) and Borneol. It is said that when alpha-Pinenes are inhaled, the brain produces alpha waves, which produce a feeling of well-being and relaxation. 'Listening to' or burning these sticks will enhance your meditation or mindfulness practices.
Japanese Hinoki is also known for its antibacterial and antiviral properties. Burn these special sticks to cleanse and purify the air.
