Koh-Do Santal Rouge or Red Sandalwood - A calming fragrance ideal for meditation
Koh-Do* Incense – traditional high-quality incense, made by Nippon Kodo, in small, affordable and attractive boxes.
The main ingredient for this Incense comes from the heartwood of Mysore Red Sandalwood trees. This wood is seasoned and dried at relatively low temperatures - a technique developed by Nippon Kodo, which blends modern technology with ancient craftsmanship and experience.
We find this fragrance to be gentle and sweet (Balsamic) with clear and fresh Citrus notes. Like most Sandalwoods, this is ideal to use when seeking to relax the body and calm the mind. This fragrance has powerful Red Sandalwood top notes known to relax the body and calm the mind.
The Sandalwood tree is sacred to Buddhists and other Eastern religions. The perfume given off by its aromatic wood has the virtue of relaxing the body and calming down the mind. It induces spirituality and withdrawal. Any occasion is good to use it, but especially helps internal development, study
and (especially) meditation.

✓ The Koh-Do range is ideal for trying new fragrances, before committing to a larger, more costly box of Japanese Incense
Much care has been placed in the design of the Koh-Do boxes – all based on Japanese masterpieces. This echoes the importance the Japanese place on incense burning or ‘listening to incense’. Koh-Do is one of the ‘Geido’ or Fine Arts in Japanese culture, along with ‘Ikebana’ (flower arranging), ‘Shodo’ (Japanese calligraphy), ‘Sado’ (Japanese Tea ceremony), ‘Yakimono’ (Japanese pottery) and ‘Noh’ (traditional Japanese theatre).
